The Next Urushi Project – We Need Your Help!

Hi Pen Fans!

I’d like to thank everyone for their interest in the Urushi Pearl Project, the first LE project between Edison and Hakumin Urushi Kobo.  The project was a huge success and we have decided that we are going to continue this cooperative effort.

In fact, we are currently in the process of planning our next LE! We have decided that this next edition will be done on the Herald and we have some good ideas for the technique, which will be something different from the Pearl LE. While we are keeping the specific technique under wraps for now, we will say that the color scheme will be in the cooler side of the spectrum this time and that we will be using rhodium trim.

However, we are stuck on deciding one thing.  Clip or no clip?  A clip would add convenience and stop a pen from rolling away. Going clipless would emphasize an unbroken surface of the lacquer and show off the purity of the design. Which do we choose? Either way would be beautiful, and it ends up all being a matter of personal preference.

And so we have decided, who better to decide than those who will be owning them?

We have started a poll over at the Fountain Pen Network to put this up for a vote among our clients.

Clipped or Clipless? What would you like?

Now that’s a stealthy pen I could fall in love with. Is it next week yet? :o) Beautiful looking pen Brian.

The ruthenium plating is just right. It would be nice if it were available in black ebonite as well as resin, and I hope the body diameter is at least 13 mm. Will there be a pneumatic version of the stealth in the future?

Black ebonite could always happen as a custom order if you like. But with the expense of ebonite, we could never do this at the same price that we are with acrylic.

Body is about 12mm wide.

Pneumatic stealths can happen, but it would be a custom order.
