"NISHIO SEISHAKUSHO" embarked on its journey in the early 1900s and, although no longer operational, its legacy endures. The company's president and owner, Mr.
Zero Nisho, who is now above 84 years old, holds the esteemed position of being considered one of Osaka's intellectual figures in the stationary revolution that followed World War II. Japan experienced unprecedented economic growth throughout the country, leading to the establishment of several stationary factories that, sadly, no longer exist today.

I really love the design of this pen it pay tribute to the Pilot Custom 67 with vintage ink-filling system.ABOUT MR NISHIO'S OSAKA STATIONERY COLLECTION. Nishio was one of the prominent fountain pen sellers from the 1900s. With a vast collection of ebonite and celluloid fountain pens. Nishio is also known to not only sells his own fountain pens but make fountain pens for other companies. However, his endeavor came to an end when the war broke out and forced him to close down.
His remaining collection of his was kept in the depository for a long time. Recently we were able to get a hold of his private collection which was in great condition! Needing almost no repair or restoration work.
The supreme quality of his collection forces us to list the item for it to find a new home. Japanese Vintage Fountain pen uses a lot of Semi-Flex nib configurations. This is because, Semi-flex nibs allow writers to write broader strokes in and between each stoke by pressing on the nib, giving writer the flexibility to write calligraphy. It is very crucial that semi-flex nib is included in the fountain open back in the 1930s. It is because Japanese writers use a semi-flex ability to write kanjis and other characters that require a broader stroke between the fine stroke.
Small enterprise such as Lance employs their own nib that was made by either nib maker. The eyedropper has a piston mechanism that helps you to intake a huge amount of ink in the barrel and when you almost finish using the ink, the piston will help you to drain out rest of inks when you clean your pen. This mechanism creates an airtight atmosphere to ensure the leaking out of ink and also constant ink flow to the feeder. Unwind the grip to separate the grip from the body. Inject ink into the body of the pen using an eyedropper and.
Attach the grip back to the body. After sealing the grip to the body tightly, wind down the piston that is located at the end of the barrel.
Station the pen downward to allow the ink to flow into the nib, after a few mins the pen should release ink from the nib. To clean the nib, you can use the piston to push out the remaining ink from the barrel to the nib. The pen is in EXCELLENT Condition! S-Tier (Please Read Below on our Condition Grade).
