Hi everyone!  I'm hoping to have a review of the Nakaya titanium Piccolo up sometime this weekend; until then, here's a shot of the pen with a writing sample from my Instagram feed.

Note the stubbed tip - you can see a small amount of gold where John (Mottishaw) ground off a bit of the ruthenium plating to create the stub.  It's an amazing writer!

Is this the Nakaya that your old Decapod made way for in the Classifieds? Very nice. I am curious to learn more in your upcoming review---especially the weight. Titanium sounds heavy (and slippery)!

Hi Jadie!  The Mini Decapod cleared the way for (possibly) a streamlined Conid Bulkfiller - still waiting on whether or not I squeaked in under the wire to get one.  It's heavy, but not slippery; I've been very pleased by that!  I've written with it for over half an hour at a stretch, but I do think a period longer than that would be too much for my hand. :)

Oo, I love your handwriting. I wish I could write with italics and stubs. Just cannot. It's my angle... sigh.

It's a sweet pen. The handwritting is beautiful.
Do you call this italic hand?

Thanks for sharing.
Writing give me the opportunity to reflect and be mindful about the present moment.

Thanks, mtrap!

It's really just a mishmash of styles. It's a modified version of my normal handwriting, trying to ape the style of better writers than me :)

The style I was taught in school looks a whole lot like something called 'business writing.'

Thanks for sharing. It seems like many of us sometimes ended up creating our own style of writing.

 

Nakaya pens are just amazing. I still like the original Piccolo model best. Although it can be sometimes too short for some people.

I love it the material while cool to me always feels nice in the hand. And John's custom work is like wizardry.

 

I love your writing, i think I've seen it elsewhere and it is spectacular.

 

best
