Chatting About My Pens Part 2: Urushi Fountain Pens (Namiki, Danitrio)

In this new series of videos, I chat about my pens. There will be no writing samples here: if you’re interested in that, please check out my reviews of the individual pens or see my Personal Pens videos.

In this second installment, I talk about my urushi pens, made by Namiki and Danitrio.

My Personal Pens: Namiki Emperor Vermillion

The Namiki Emperor is a great pen, in every sense of the word.  It’s a giant ebonite pen, which is then lacquered with urushi.  The nib is Namiki’s #50 – and it’s enormous and a little springy (contrary to the modern Emperor nibs, which are stiffer, as I understand).  A behemoth, this eyedropper-filled pen with a one-way shutoff valve holds about 6 ml of ink – so I can use this for weeks without having to re-ink it.  If you are interested, I have also recorded a full review of this pen.  This beautiful pen was a gift from Azizah, which makes it all the more special.
