Mine shipped on the 2nd as well, and I received it yesterday! It was a nice surprise after a long day. It was nearly midnight, but I couldn't help myself and inked it up to try before going to bed. I'm very pleased with it so far. The bakul finish has an appearance and subtlety to it in person that I didn't anticipate from just looking at photographs of other pens. I'll post pictures when I have more time this weekend!

Got my mottled brown model 8 last week but Ive been so busy that I could not take any photos yet... (and the weather has been awful, very dull lighting...)
But the pen is lovely! A very nice colour/finish combo in bakul! I look forward to posting photos as soon as possible

I have just recently received my regular Sugarcane in matte Olive green S23 ebonite with German Bock Calligraphy 1.1 nib. As soon as I held it the feel of the matte texture made certain that this is by far the favourite of my Bamboo and Sugarcane pens. I like the texture so much I almost don’t even feel the need to write with it, although of course I soon will when I decide what ink I need to use. My Bamboo in S29 Solid green polished military is inked up with murky green Sailor Warbler ink; my Bamboo in black and yellow swirl P2 is inked up with Sailor Green tea. 

      Here are all three pens lying on a piece of lute Tablature which I am transcribing.

You’ll notice a slight size difference between the two Bamboo pens, the one in Black and yellow swirl being the smallest. The Sugarcane is considerably bigger, but it doesn’t feel so in the hand, it feels a wonderfully ergonomic pen, thank you Mr Kandan!

As to the nibs on these pens, I like at least some line variation and the fine Titanium on the black and yellow Bamboo does give a little, and it also has some feedback in the manner of a graphite pencil, which I quite like; but I do have variation of a different type with the Bock 1.1 nibs in the Military green Bamboo and the matte Olive green Sugarcane.

I am happy with all three pens, but the newest Sugarcane is the one I think I will enjoy the most, but of course it is the last one received which could partly explain that ...

Regards
