Yeah, there's always a risk it might get stolen, especially the good looking ones or brighter colors...be careful.

 

I rarely lose or misplace stuff of value. It's the whole Sitting-reading-writing-chatting cafe side while the pen is on the table. On those shifty eyes in the background dt880smile.png. I suppose some folks are just looking with interest. And then others are looking... evil_smiley.gif for opportunity.

 

 

Yes, you've seen 'em before but we gonna make your night anyway. biggrin.gif

Well, actually you made my day.

But the Falcon is always a pleasure to look at biggrin.gif

 

The shifty eyes I guess are more curious than sinister. You don't see people use fountain pens anymore, a lot probably wouldn't even know what it is.

And the open nibbed pens are pretty flashy, unlike the hooded nibs.

1. It's this Levenger one with the dark cherry finish: http://www.levenger.com/Pens---Refills-8/Pen-Cases---Stands-92/Point-of-View-Pen-Case-961.aspx

     They used to also have some great quality leather pen cases at reasonable prices, but unfortunately it seems that they don't have those anymore.

2. Thanks!

3. Unfortunately I do not. I was considering getting an urushi lacquered pen the last time I went to Japan, but I'm a sucker for integrated fillers so I ended up with the Custom 823. Also I don't put that many scratches on my pens, so the extra durability of the urushi finish might not be worth the cost for me. They certainly are fine pens, though... Those red lacquer ones look particularly nice and distinctive.

Whenever I make it to Japan, I'm bringing back pencils, pens and cases. Well, would likely limit quantity for quality and just bring back a beautiful pen; case.

As I think I mentioned to someone else before, the flea markets are well worth checking out if you ever go to Japan. Some of the sellers have large boxes full of Japanese "pocket pens" from the 80's that are in very useable condition. The last time I went, I picked up 4 Japanese pens from a flea market for 3600 yen. All of them had solid gold nibs (one had an interesting white gold nib) and worked after some cleaning.

 

They certainly do have a lot of great pencils that they only release on the domestic market, too.

The ones on the right are Japanese-made. Starting with the orange one: Zebra 2-tect, Pentel Sharp Kerry, Uni Shift Pipe, Uni Kuru Toga HG, Ohto Super Promecha, Staedtler REG, Rotring 600, Pilot Automac.

What colour Falcon and what colour ink? The bottles remind me of Perfume bottles.

Congrats! I have to agree with you about the Iroshizuku bottles. The only other contender I can think of is J. Herbin, and the Iroshizuku series outshines them for me.
