I just received the first pen of my special order at my local shop. The next ones will be the Samouraï and the Empire limited editions. For the time being, there will be dragons. Hope you'll enjoy this short review.

Yes, there will be dragons.

Inside the outer box, a pouch for another box. Russian dolls?

Lacquered box. Protection was justified.

Opening the chest

Limited, yeaaaah!

Dragon's head on the cap, dragon's body on the barrel, and pattern on the section

Nib. Slightly disappointed by the absence of personalization, as it was the case on the Samouraï

Posted Image

Details on the nib and section, and a piece of my ear ;)

Posted Image

Feed and more details on the section

Posted Image

This is drooling material. I'm amazed.

Posted Image

Not to sound arrogant, but I've been repeating this ;)

I haven't inked it yet. Still shocked by how beautiful it is. Maybe if I recover from the amazement and can land back on earth from cloud nine, I might add a writing sample.

Their description, "plug the end on the barrel", sure makes posting seem barbaric.

Your images capture the high level of quality this pen is made with. I guess another pen for my lotto wish list, well any DuPont for that matter.
Enjoy in good health. :thumbup:

Finally, the promised writing sample. As usual, I'm "supergood" at taking pictures and I don't have a scanner anymore, so my apologies for the bad image quality.
