Dark Radiance

Before I get started, let me say I take no responsibility from pen envy or impulse purchases resulting from this post. Pen porn abounds. You have been warned. Now, enjoy!


I fell in love with my Tamenuri Studio pen when Michal posted his close up images (see image 2 below).

I sent him a message ASAP, and, luckily it was still available. Michal was kind enough to send me some photos of the whole pen. It lost nothing in the further distanced photos. He posted them a little later, so you can see them, too.

So, I claimed it, chose a nib, and eagerly awaited its arrival.

The presentation when it arrived was great. The pen was well-protected in two bubble envelopes, and I loved the stamps and wax seal added to the interior envelope. Sorry, I don’t have photos of that. I was too eager to get into my pen.

The box the pen was in has a cool sleeve with a custom imprint. The box itself is a lovely leatherette case, and the pen was nestled in a red “velvet” drawstring bag.

But, removing the pen from its bag was like opening a treasure chest. This pen is SO PRETTY!!! The depth of color is amazing. I highly recommend Tamenuri Studio’s work.

Hello beautiful!
