Vintage OHASHIDO Handmade Ebonite Black Urushi Fountain Pen. For avid collectors of Ohashido, this is an early version of Ohashido's iconic flat top torpedo fountain pen!It features the old style domed cap and "JSU" orientation, printed vertically down the clip. While hard to date Ohashido pens, these elements place the pen being made in the 1970's or early to mid 1980's.
As a collector of Ohashido fountain pens, I have not seen many like this come up for sale. In the late 1980's, Ohashido changed the cap design, going to a completely flat top with a slight taper up the sides. These changes gave the modern version a softer look.Photo number 12 shows a modern version from my personal collection next to this pen for comparison. This pen has a sharper, more masculine profile. You can also see on the modern version, "JSU" is printed across the clip.
The condition of this pen is excellent, with just a little age related browning on the cap. Gold nib and feed are in mint condition.I have not tested the pen and it will need a converter. Handcrafted by late master artist Mr. Body: Black Ebonite / HonUrushi lacquered Finish.
Two 18K rings on body for balance. 5.6 in (141 mm). Sailor OEM 14K NIB, Soft-Medium (S-M marked in the left hand side of the NIB).
NIB in beautiful condition Never or Hardly Used? U stamped on the clip J. Stands for Japan, Sendai, Uehara. U Ohashido SINCE 1912 is stamped on the cap ring. No Box, Just the Pen.
