I want to buy an 823 but I also want to buy a Nakaya or a KOP.
For the Nakaya I would go with the Orange one. (From Nakaya website)
And for the KOP it would have to be the ebonite (no urushi because it is $1,500 more!)
From Sailor website.
The good thing about the KOP is that the nib is bigger and it can be a Naginta togi NMF.
If I go the 823 route the others pens would have to wait for a year or two.
So flashy/nice/stong color vs a good good nib, classical look pen.
Don´t know where too ask, you friends of FPN could enlight me with your opinions.
I had an XF Nakaya nib with the Mottishaw spencerian (needlepoint flex), but I want the new pen to be an everyday writing, note taking (any paper). So I would go with the M on the Nakaya and a MF on the Sailor. I want a super smooth nib, I have read the Naginta Togi could be very smooth but maybe the MF is too broad.
