It came promptly with free shipping from Montgomery Pens for $111.96. On their website, they call it a Namiki and I wondered if it would be branded as such, but nope, it says "Pilot". The black lacquer finish is very rich and is complimented by the bright gold trim and nib (or maybe the other way around). It writes well upside down, and right side up, and the clip doesn't bother me in either position -- it actually helps keep the nib oriented properly. I'm going to love this pen.
Remember, the sample card below only measures 3x5 inches, and probably looks a lot bigger on your screen.
