    Oh wow. I am not sure with your last pen - half of me is saying "Whoah there, that's too far from the original feel of the authentic bamboo" and the other half is saying "Wow, there's a long way we've come from the original boring bamboo, what artistry".

    And actually I'd quite like to have that pen so I could indulge both of those different feelings every morning :-)

    Really lovely. I particularly like the raden/rankaku mix, looks to me like coconut sweeties with little pomegranate seeds on top - very sweet!

    Thank you very much.
    the attentive observer can also see at the transition between bamboo and lacquer, how the lacquer was built up

    Wonderful pens! I'm in the process of researching techniques and starting Urushi work soon. I might email you for some help

    Hey Adit, I've just ordered urushi materials too - maybe we should have a Skype or zoom meeting every so often to keep up with progress!

    Sure thing, but it'll be at least a few more months till I can save up for Urushi stuff. Being on a 17 year old's budget doesn't help 😅🙈. But I'm not letting that stop me because I feel Urushi is my kinda thing. If you want, we can surely discuss techniques and stuff.
