My Namisu Nova came in the other day. I picked up the solid titanium model along with the titanium Bock nib option in medium. First impression, its a very understated pen in the stonewashed finish. Maybe a little too understated. I put a light hand polish on it to spice things up a bit. The pen looks great with a bit of shine too it! I left the grit blasted finish on the nib alone. It mixes well with the rest of the pen now. Looks 100% better with a slight polish on the body and cap.

The writing experience is really very nice! This is my first Ti nib pen and I really like this nib. It reminds me of the palladium medium nib on my Visconti Millionaire. Slightly less wet than the Visconti but more line variation but less spring. This Ti nib is interesting. Its very specific about how it writes if you compare it to other materials. The amount of feedback is just right for me. I like my nibs just a bit feedbacky but not scratchy. This nib is right in the zone. Maybe a very small pass on some 12k micromesh to be perfect. Theres a really good amount of line variation for a modern nib. I had to go a little slow to avoid railroading though. Just standard writing, its pretty wet. I dont know, I just really like this nib especially at the price. Ill most likely put this nib on a few of my pens after using it for the first time. Really a nice nib!

Overall this is a great pen! The nib is unique and the material, exotic. Its feels warm in the hand once youve been writing with it a while. Maybe a little warmer than celluloid or at least it retains heat longer. My only real complaint is that it doesnt have a clip. That would be nice for daily carry. Maybe some facets to keep it from rolling off the table. The metal on metal cap to body threads are a little gritty too. Otherwise, awesome pen! Ill be keeping a firm eye on Namisu and easily see adding another of their pens to my collection. In my opinion, overall, these are pretty unique to whats available right now. Especially at the price point. Very nice pen!

I agree, it does look nice polished. I'm curious about how resistant to drying out it is? That's been an issue I've had with a lot of pens.

I'll keep an eye on that.  There's only a few threads to the cap so it will be interesting to see if it does dry out quick.  Can't stop writing with it long enough to find out so far  :D

I have had one for a couple years now and really like it.  I haven't used it used it in a couple weeks - just pulled it out of the pen block and it wrote.  

 

I am sure you will enjoy it!
