    Default Manu Propria Pens - Kimono

    I recently noticed that Bonham's offers a Dunhill Namiki Fountain Pen from the 1930's with an interesting "Kawarinuri" experimental Urushi lacquer. The description says rather amateurish that its Maki-e but it's a Kawarinuri.
    Maki-e is one of many techniques within the Urushi trade. Maki = Sprinkling, e = picture. Kawarinuri pens are rare to be found in Auctions.

    However, since my work is focussed on rediscovering old and developing new Urushi techniques I tried to recreate a copy.

    Best regards,

    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!
