I haven’t created a pen porn post on a non-new pen in quite a while. So, today I present to you my glorious Platinum Izumo Kurikara-ken. It depicts a scene of the epic battle between Fudo Myo-o β€” whose name means the immovable or unshakable one β€” one of the Five Great Wisdom Kings of Japanese Buddhism, and a threatening dark demon. As the struggle progresses, Fudo Myo-o transforms himself into Kurikara, his own sword, in order to do battle with the demon. When the demon also transforms into a sword, Fudo Myo-o then transforms into a dragon to swallow and destroy him. It is this conclusion that the pen shows.

I don’t have much to say about this pen, other than it’s absolutely phenomenal. The nib is fabulous. The shape is comfortable to hold. And there’s a dragon. It’s virtually perfect.

  1. It is indeed a marvelous and stunning pen. And not only because it has a dragon. I have one for about 3 years now and I still don’t regret the purchase.
