Very nice! I debated between the Sai and the Nice, but ended up with the latter because I couldn't get over the inner cap being shown through the clear plastic. I was thinking that it would have been so much prettier with a black trim, like on the stealth pens.

It's a very beautiful pen. I just wish it came with more interesting filling mechanism than this converter.

Just an update: I did some reading about proper grip and writing technique; after loosening my hold on the pen a bit and maintaining position on the sweet spot the nib really glides over paper now. I also tried writing unposted for a lengthy period of time and found that I actually prefer it this way and the pen feels nonexistent- as if it were an extension of my hand.

I chose the Sai over the Nice Pur since I didn't like the frosting on the body/cap of the Nice Pur.

Lovely review of what looks like a lovely pen. The Shin Kai compliments it really well too.

 

Happy New Year.
