Wow.

I've never come across any photo or mention of this pen before, and I thought the 'Gathered' ribbed design was something particular to the Platinum brand or, more narrowly, its #3776 line of fountain pens.

Doubly wow for the asking price. Too rich for me, especially when I already have an 'old design' Naginata Concord nib on a boring plain black Sailor Profit21 pen body, which I bought some five years ago.

However, I'll say this: the 21K gold NK nib is certainly more interesting and commanding of attention than the Naginata Togi nib. I don't see how the Togi nib is supposed to stylistically work for writing in kanji (which, in most instances, is just rendered in something akin to the kaishu script rendered in Chinese hanzi), but I can certainly see how the NK nib is conducive to Asian calligraphy-with-a-rigid-metal-nibbed writing instrument.

As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

The 3776 gathered has been on my radar for a while, and the 50% markup they sell at is reasonable. But $1000+, WOW! Very Hard to justify this price, even with the Naginata Concord nib.
