The pen is a Nazca "Tuscany Sun", fitted with a two-tone medium (M) nib, made by John. I knew it was going to be a beauty from pictures, however, when the pen arrived, it was one of those times when a picture doesn't do justice to the real thing. This pen is, hands down, gorgeous! Solidly made, perfect size and weight for my hand and the nib, just as on my "Strawberry", also by John Brady, writes like silk on silk. Beautiful pen, wonderfully made, smooooth nib, gorgeous color and I've had no problems regardless of the paper used. Could there be more?? No, not that would make this pen any better.
The Nazca is a good size pen, a plus for those of us who prefer larger pens, but its not heavy in your hand, so I have experienced absolutely no fatigue. You'll notice that my "Tuscany Sun" has no clip. I don't use clips, so I requested that it be made without one. The result was a beautifully sleek pen. I don't post my pens, so my pen doesn't post. Truly a custom pen from blank to delivery.
This is my second custom pen made by John Brady and I can tell you quite frankly, it won't be my last!! My camera has been refusing to play nicely, so I'm hoping that John won't mind that I used the photographs he sent to me as a teasing preview of my new baby. Pictures quite honestly don't do justice to the beauty of this pen! Look at that shine!!!
Thank you, John!!!
