Here is my new addition to my collection. A Sailor KOP Kaga Kinsai Makie.

The packaging:
In a wooden box in a sealed bag. A kinomo pen case. No issue here. I like the presentation of this pen very much.

The nib:
The nib is M. This is an excellent Sailor M nib. No compaints whatsoever. Very smooth writer. It is suitable for a daily writer. But, I will keep it home bound. No need for me to take it outside of my home as long as I can enjoy on my own terms. I only show my pens on this forum. I keep my mouth shut on pens most of the time. No need to risk scratches by taking it out of my safe home environment.

The filling system:
It is similar to a KOP set up: a Sailor converter. No issue here for me. Maybe for others.

The artwork on the pen:
I was impressed with the makie artwork on this pen, to say the least. A gorgeous makie artwork on a KOP size pen. This is a Kinasai Makie. "Kin" menas gold. I can see and feel the quality of the artwork here. I thought I would not see the difference in the makie artwork when I see it. But, I can see it now loud and clear. I own several makie pens already. So, I think this should indicate something.

The pictures worth a thousand words, as the saying goes.

    Can a nib be smoothed by psychokinesis?

Thanks for sharing these pictures.
