Very interesting review. I have not come across Namisu before. My first reaction was its similarity to the Nakaya TI Piccolo (which you note) although there is a massive difference, not least in price (x10). Indeed it seems as if Namisu may well have been using the Nakaya as a model for a less expensive version. Also the Nakaya is a third as much again in weight and although it is perfectly balanced (it doesn't post, just like the Namisu) as you would expect from Nakaya, it feels too heavy for a pen of this small size. For those who love metal-bodied pens, small in size but with some heft, Namisu seems a brilliant solution. Having said this, many find the Piccolo-sized pen too small - I don't - and combined with the weight of 30 grams one might ask whether a long writing session wouldn't tire.
