Very pretty pen :) I have not heard of Kato, but I'm glad you're happy with it.

Very nice review. I have a similar Kato pen that I've been meaning to post a review on....I will try to get some pictures this weekend and write up a review.

I'm glad you are enjoying your pen as much as I'm enjoying mine.

Thanks for the review!

I have several of the late Kato's pens, including a celluloid demonstrator. I think the model you reviewed here is 1 of his larger models. Did you modify the nib yourself?
