This pen is marked “Silver”,  not “Sterling Silver”.  I found a Japanese blog that said this pen is made from a more pure form of Silver than Sterling Silver.  I am not sure of the purity though.  When I got it there was a small dent on the cap and I was able to push it put by hand with a stainless steel tool.  The softness of the metal means to me that is is near pure Silver.

The nib is marked as Pt. Alloy.  There was a post on FPN about how much Platinum is used but there was no conclusive answer.  I will have to find the link again but the assumption was that it was a low enough percentage to make the claim.

This pen is pretty rare.  It is an oversize model so it is fairly large.  It was made in the late 1960s.  The nib is smooth.  It writes beautifully.  It is honestly one of all time favorite pens and I don’t want to sell it.

I am asking ¥34,000 ¥15,000 (currently around $137.23) for this pen.  That is for the pen and two cartridges.  Of course, shipping is free.

If you have any questions, or would like to but this pen, please send email to tomattarashinu@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Steve
