1. Solid "Platinum Silver" (Pt-Ag) nibs

done

Changed to Au-Ag nibs for more stable production

much, much better corrosion resistance compared to argentium.

more tests needed, but corrosion resistance on par with, or bettern than stainless steel

Not completely ruling out pt-ag nib, as some have been successfully made.

 

2. Self-Developed clip - conceptual

designing phase,

production phase after workshop relocation

if relocation is not possible, then some alterations to original design is needed

 

3. Eureka ebonite feed (4G) - conceptual

designing phase,

production phase after workshop relocation

if relocation is not possible, then some alterations to original design is needed

 

4. Pure Gold decoration technique (on urushi)

done

working on ways to further improve production stability 

 

5. Mass produceable Epoxy Ebonite 3 slotted "Baguette" Pen Rest

done

researching with various organic materials : done, about 10 different types (rosemary, rose, pine, etc...)

 

6. oyster pattern mosaic technique on urushi 

currently under research : 65% done

 

7. working on higher yield production technique for muti-faceted ebonite barrel and cap.

possibly applicable for custom barrel and cap for century, gathered, duofold, etc.

80% done

 

8. Urushi Technique 5th Gen.

further stabilized overall urushi production

further stabilized longterm urushi stability

further stabilized longterm urushi storage and retrieval

further stabilized longterm urushi adhesion to base material

further stabilized longterm urushi to urushi adhesion

improved urushi drying speed

improved urushi polish level

 

9. oyster fragmentation technique on urushi

theoretically possible with current equipments

tests needed
