Wow! That looks really neat! It's expensive though...

Would you be able to do a review or compare to the Pilot Custom 845?

hello, i have uploaded a picture with a Custom 845 for your comparison, the Hannyashingyo is based on the Pilot 90th Anniversary flap top model, with brass barrel and Maki-E finish. you would find it heavier than the 845. it has a 18k #10 single tone nib, whereas the Custom 845 has a 18k #15 two tone nib. both can use CON-70 as the converter.

Thank you! That's really fantastic....I love urushi pens, but I'm looking to find a cheaper one to purchase. While this is expensive, it is sumptuously finished and designed!
