Some of them can dry out if I don't use them often enough. Ive never had a problem that couldn't be sorted with some rinsing out though. On the whole they write very well with minimal care though to be honest

Just found this thread! Got back into writing with fountain pens late last year and I love the few that I have in my set.

The White Knight in black Chinese lacquer and palladium is my go-to office pen:

I adore Nakaya, and John Mottishaw's work on nibs means my Nakayas are what I reach for whenever I want a delightful personal writing experience. All my Nakayas are in Urushi lacquer, like this Ascending Dragon cigar in Aka-Tamenuri:

And this Dorsal Fin v2 in Heki-Tamenuri:

I'm a big proponent of actually using the stuff I have so I feel great writing more by hand, using these lovely pens. I use Pilot Iroshizuku ink in Kon-Peki, Asa-Gao, Shin-Ryoku and Yama-Budo for a bit of play in color.

Lovely things indeed and better for being used Frills nod[1].gif

Nothing better than a hand written note, I love to send them almost as much as writing them

Thanks, Charlie. I quite love the Ascending Dragon: the dragon is painted underneath the Urushi lacquer. So as the lacquer lightens over time, based on where and how the owner uses and grips the pen, more of the dragon "ascends" and emerges. Love it! And it writes like butter on paper.

Speaking of craftsmanship, I ordered four belts from you guys several years ago and they are all going strong; part of my regular rotation during the week. 💪💪💪

Love sending and writing handwritten notes too. Sometimes it's just a short line or two. Also glad to keep the US postal service busy!

Thats a tremendous piece of design, beautifully thought out. I get more into Japanese design as I get older and the more I do the more I love their sense of detail.

Really pleased to hear the belts are doing well :-)
