No, I think it is appropriate. Very cool that he is a Star Trek fan! Ooooh. I don't suppose we could convince him to do a LE run of Trek pens, do you think?

Why, sometimes I'd like to take a switchblade and a peppermint and a Cadillac and throw it all in a fire.

Now you're talkin'!! The Star Fleet insignia would be on the cap top (where the MB star would be). The barrel would be a complete recreation of a warp drive nacelle. And on the cap, a wrap around top view of the Enterprise against a star background. :D

Mmmm. Yummy.

 

Edited to add that I would like mine to have my name in Klingon on it. I think that just for fun, we should start another thread about this!

Those photos are very fine - you really serve the pen up on a silver platter :clap1:.

Maki-e artists in general are not super rich, they do them for the love of traditional art, much like any artists. Their multi-level house is narrow, and more deep than wide as seen from photos bellow. Grandpa Okazaki is also a maki-e artist, so that's 3 generations of artists. Grandma is 76 y.o. and she looks wonderful with very little wrinkle and remains very active. Yamanaka is surrounded by lots of very fine hotsprings, maybe that's the secret of looking young :-)

 

Too bad that often the artist who is spending most time and doing most of the job doesn't get the largest piece of the pie.

 

nevertheless, it is a beautiful piece of art. Well done and thanks for showing!

Thanks about all the very nice comments about the photos. The pen is special to me and yes, I must admit that it is very nice too :cloud9: . It is difficult to photograph a nice girl and get a bad photo. The only thing to do is to empty one's mind and pay attention to her... With this pen, the same applies... She is beautiful and this makes it easier to photograph... patience, time ... the right atmosphere and ... voila! :happyberet: :thumbup: :ltcapd:

 

And now... the "heart" of it, and of any Mikado or Genkai... The nib and feed or "the perfect writing dream team". This BIG nib (yes there are bigger around, including one from Danitrio... ) and its corresponding feed, in my case always Fine Flex, is the sweetest I've ever tried, and not in this, but in every one I have over here. Inclusive the one I have in my Tamenuri Mikado, which I have adjusted for "poor flow" on everyday paper use, is sweet, soft, responsive and absolutely forgiving. This extraordinary behaviour is because I thought that some photos of that combo should be added here... It is not only nice, but a real workhorse with a sweet and refined lady's behaviour...

I think that there is a most important part of that pie that only the artisan deserves ,and in my case I have taken already actions in order to be sure that he receives it. The RECOGNITION for his painfully perfect work. I think that this will not give him the "food" for his body... but the best meal for his soul... and in some time it will help him in putting the right piece of pie onto his own table...

That's a comfort. Enjoy the stunning pen anyway.

I saw this bad boy in person. WOW! The pictures ALMOST make it look as good as in person! ;) Congrats Jopen! Great style!

 

Thanks for your compliments Mava... I agree, it is much better in person, but to appreciate the work involved in the design you need some kind of magnifier, and there is where photography comes handy :eureka:

Hi Jose, did not forget about you. here is the Haiku info on your pen. It was written by Kitahara Hakushu who is consider one of the top five modern Japanese poet. You can read more about his info here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitahara_Hakushu

 

And the poem reads:

 

Himawariwa

Yusaritomosenu

Omotasayo

 

I can't find any "official" English translation and the literary meaning and what the poet try to convey is difficult, the the gist of the poem is about Sunflower calmly and fearlessly face the strong sun and wind in the field. Something like that.

Thanks Kevin... and it is goot to know that it may be interpreted as intended, where something delicate may survive the harsh conditions imposed by life...

Well done!!!
