This review is hand written with the pen in question. Please excxuse the spelling mistake MRSP instead of MSRP, I work with MRSA ( methicillin resistant staphylococcous aureus and I guess the first three letters are burned into my brain).
Links to my review are below and I opted to put links to Bryant Greer's photos since they are so much better than mine.

When I look at my writing I am embarrassed. Please imagine your own beautiful script instead of mine.
This is one fabulous pen, and I have owned and used enough over the years to say this with authority.

This year I bought the same pen (including nib size) from SpeerBob and agree with all your points concerning the beauty, nib quality, and flow in this pen. I also find the ink window lovely--I like them large, and I don't mind the yellow at all. This autumn I mixed up a red-orange ink and filled the pen with it; I'll let you know if I've stained the poor thing. And finally, like you, I thought the pen was too sumptuous to take to work. And yet now it's a constant companion. I just couldn't leave it at home, even for a few hours. My wife thinks I'm like Gollum in Lord of the Rings: "My Preeecious!"

I am dismayed to read that you haven't had a good experience with your Nakaya--especially since that is the pen (specifically an Equilibrium) I'm saving up for.

So this is the pen you were talking about. I've had my eye on this pen, but also have my eye on my bank account. This is really beautiful. Congratulations. I expect your next letter to be written with it.

Thanks for the great review (it was certainly worth deciphering)!

Now, I am saving up for a DV piston myself....
