And I keep forgetting to put their pictures up!
I’d seen the pen in pictures, and of course the Takuya website has many handcrafted leather wonders to ogle, but to see the Vestaere for real was a treat.
The material for this batch of King of Pens reminds me of the Namiki Impressions.
The King of Pens also comes in urushi finishes. The light purple one is my favorite.
I finally got to see the Tale of Genji pens. I wanted one from this series several months back, but after seeing them for real I was a tad underwhelmed. They certainly are beautiful. Perhaps the shape of the 1911, while classic, lessens its appeal to me.
Danitrio also retails at Aesthetic Bay. These pens are giants. They are, I think, truly more for exhibit than for actual writing.
