  1. https://www.pensachi.com/products/sailor-1911-gathered-special-nib-old-design-naginata-concord-fountain-pen-maroon 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.
  2. Hi, Lately I've been obsessing over the Sailor specialty nibs. But, I owned a Sailor with a Naginata Togi nib and didn't really like it. My current obsession is over the Cross Point. It looks like a really cool and versatile nib, but, dang they're expensive. If I go through nibs.com and get a Realo (seems like a piston fill would be wise since these nibs are super wet) plus a Cross Point I'm looking at over $600. A concord nib is much cheaper, but the video I watched on it made it sound super scratchy. So, have any of you tried these nibs? What are your thoughts? I realize these are really made for Japanese calligraphy and not for English, but I would also use mine for Hebrew (or that's how I'm trying to justify it!). Susan

    How Big Is Your Concord?

    I was asked about ink for a little Concord (I use international shorts) and I realized I hadn't had my gold set out in a long time. The Lady version really is petite - 124 mm capped, 9 mm diameter. The standard size isn't large - 134 mm x 11 mm. On the left is the set: On the right is the little Concord surrounded by full size pens:
