This now feels and looks perfect to me. The reddish-red Urushi finish is just impossible to adequately describe, other than to say that photos do not do it justice. It writes like it is floating on a cloud, and feels 'right as rain' in my hand. Now that I have this two color nib, I have to admit it was more than worth the upgrade price. Also, the pillow to rest it is essential. The last think you want to have happen is this go rolling off your desk and end up with a crack.
To me this is a perfect pen. I couldn't think of a more perfect match for this pen color than using Binder's Burgundy--a match made in heaven. It has a refillable gold plated converter that holds about 0.5cc ink.
When I got this, I had my trusty sidekick, Geoffrey take the lead, as these thumbnails show.
