The packaging: The same as before. An appropriate presentation of the pen with a bottle of Sailor Gentle Black ink.
Te pen: Compared to the Red, this Brown one has more subdued elegance as brown is more conservative. I like this understated elegance. The downside of the KOP size is I could not use my 2 pen or 3 pen cases as a KOP is too fat for those types of pen cases. I can fit it in a 5-pen roll type case, however. The filling is a Sailor converter with a typical KOP gold accent.
The nib: A big KOP 21 K nib. This is an M and is suitable for daily writing, while good for a signature at the same time. Based on the dip test, the nib is very smooth as expected from Sailor's M nibs.
