Presentation: A typical sailor presentation for high end makie or urushi finish fountain pens.
Pen: This pen is finished with the shuncho-nuri technique, which requires repeated applications of urushi coating and gold powder followed by polishing each time. The urushi work on this pen has a uniqe look to it and by a closer inspection it has an intricate organic pattern made of gold power.
Nib:It comes with a Sailor's 21K gold nib typically found on the Profit series. As expected from Sailor, this is a smooth nib. As Sailor's nibs tend to run narrower, I chose M, which is just right for my hand writing. However, as a side note, with Pilot's M which is a little wider than Sailor's M, I sometimes think I prefer Pilot's F nibs even though it could exhibit a scratchiness.
