This pen is the Profit size. I was looking for an understated look of urushi finish pen with some discreet artwork. Here it goes.

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.

This looks really beautiful! It appears to me like little islands on a map.

I have an Aurora Talentum with that finish. It is quite striking.

I thought Aurora sold pens with Nanako-nuri which was applied by Tanaka-ya, a Tsugaru-nuri specialist.

Well, I could not resist. Here is my another addition. As the cho-shun-nuri is applied by an experienced artisan, each pen is unique. Here are the side by side photos of 2 same pens.

I am going to keep my new one sealed for the time being.
