Amazing pen. Shipping was superfast, and customer service/communication was excellent as usual. I don't have a huge collection, but on the larger size pens, I do have the MB 149, M1000, and Sailor KOP. I was on the fence about buying this pen for a while, but decided to order it. VERY happy with purchase. Pen is everything I thought, and more. Needless to say, it's a giant - with a beautiful Nib to match. Writing experience is a pleasure, nothing else quite like it. Ink flow is instant, and perfect. Lastly, even though it probably goes without saying, the ink capacity is incredible.

The Namiki Emperor Black Urushi fountain pen is finished in natural Urushi lacquer and is provided with a generous #50 Namiki 18k solid gold nib in your choice of tipping size. Please note that the Fine nibs are identified as "FM" on the nib itself.

Dressed up in classic black and gold, the Namiki Emperor Black urushi fountain pen is a pen with presence. Smooth black urushi lacquer envelops the pen from tip to tail, demonstrating quality lacquer craft.

 The Namiki Emperor revives the large size #50 fountain pen nib in this flagship model.

Not only is this eyedropper filler pleasing, but it also possesses an impressive ink capacity, allowing you to write for hours in luxury without interruption. It has an ink shut-off to seal the nib from the barrel when not in use.


A matching polished black feed on the underside of the nib adds a unique detail to this Black Urushi writing instrument.


The silky black finish is achieved using the Roiro Urushi Shiage method in which raw non-oil lacquer is rubbed into the Emperor after polishing it with special charcoal.

A gold pocket clip bears the Namiki name and pentagon and serves as a built in roll-stopper.

The Namiki Emperor Black urushi fountain pen arrives in an elegant softwood presentation box and includes a bottle of ink, eyedropper, and documentation.
