I am really tempted by this. Does the price include shipping to Canada?

The offer is very tempting, I am even considering of taking more than one.

Could you please post a size comparison picture for both the round and flattop model with just any other commonly know pen (MB146/9, TWSBI VAC700, Lamy Safari etc)?

I hope it could help other people like me to decide.

Thank you in advance.

I don't have an Emperor pen, but here's a comparison of my Ranga Model 3 (maroon matte) and an older Duofold (mottled brown), with (from top to bottom) a TWSBI Diamond 580, Lamy Safari, Pilot Vanishing Point and Jinhao x750 - both capped and uncapped.
