Danitrio The Battles of Kawanakajima Makie Fountain Pen



川中島の戦い Kawanakajima no tatakai

This Danitrio makie fountain pen theme Battles of Kawanakajima  bring back some old memory - my favour Samuri movie titled "Heaven and Earth". Do not mistaken this movie with the Hollywood 1993 war movie directed by Oliver Stone, starring Tommy Lee Jones, Joan Chen and Hiep Thu Le.

This block blaster Japanese Heaven and Earth (天と地と, Ten to chi to) was a 1990 film directed by Haruki Kadokawa, starring Enoki Takaaki, Tsugawa Masahiko, Asano Atsuko, Zaizen Naomi and Nomura Hironobu.

The movie is based on the famous fifth battle of the Japanese history Battles of Kawanakajima. They were fought in the Sengoku Period of Japan between Takeda Shingen of Kai Province and Uesugi Kenshin of Echigo Province in the plain of Kawanakajima, "the island between the rivers", in the north of Shinano Province.

PILOT CAPLESS LIMITED EDITION 2016

Pilot Capless Limited Edition will be launched in September 2016.

Pilot move away from their transition of launching the special color for their limited edition. The 2016 Limited Edition barrel is made from resin with barleycorn pattern (guilloche technique) engraved.

It look similar to the Pilot Justus 95, except this is a Pilot Capless.

There is a divided option about beauty of the Capless/Vanishing point Limited Edition 2016.

Honestly, I am not excited about Pilot vanishing point limited edition 2016.
