I got my Nakaya Piccolo Cigar in Aka-tamenuri Monday from Nibs.com and am really loving it. I'm happy I got it before they had to close business from the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order in California. In any case the pen came in the standard wood box you normally see from Nakaya with all of the same stuff. The other pen I got was Friday a Platinum Izumo in Soratame green. Both pens a B nibs. The president nib on the Platinum is wetter and puts down a slightly thicker line of the two. I got the Izumo from Cult pens and was a bargain compared to getting it from the states.
I'm very happy to have bought both pens and they are both nice in my hand to write with. It does have me wanting more though! Now I want a Nakaya Piccolo Writer in Heki-tamenuri, and maybe a Nakaya Naka-Ai. I'm tempted but a Namiki Emperor #50, but balking at the size, but that section looks so comfortable. I don't think there is anything else that feels like Urushi over ebonite. Not sure I can stop at just two, but see having 50-100 like some of you guys I'm currently at 81 pens as it is.
And for people that don't know the size of the Nakaya here it is with a Lamy Safari
For the eagle eyed... yes the Izumo has a small chip next to the clip. I fumbled it a day after getting it and dropped it on to my desk where it then bounced and hit a metal water bottle on the floor leaving the chip but no other damage. It doesn't affect anything and normally isn't noticeable.
