placed this order in June last year, took over 8 months to ship.

And then, got stuck in Australian customs for a whole month....! a whole month... 30 days I'm not kidding.

It's finally delivered. Can't stop smiling looking at this pen.

Now THAT is a really gorgeous pen, and I hope the AQIS customs officers weren’t taking turns admiring that pen. Wow !

Enjoy it in good health.

Absolutely gorgeous. Congratulations and enjoy it in good health. 

 

Can I ask, is it a custom order? If so, how did you go about it?

 

I ask as I have two custom Nakayas, and I'd be interested to know how the process has changed...


Too many pens; too little writing.

​Gorgeous pen, and this Nakaya/Platinum nibs with heart shaped breather hole just wins my heart every time  :wub:

Absolutely gorgeous. Congratulations and enjoy it in good health. 

 

Can I ask, is it a custom order? If so, how did you go about it?

 

I ask as I have two custom Nakayas, and I'd be interested to know how the process has changed...

 

not a custom order, this is from their chinkin collection.

 

although I did ask them if I can custom order a pen, that's similar to one pen from their old discontinued art collection, they said no.  :(
