So, long story short, I saved up for a Danitrio Sho-Hakkaku in EEF nib from Nibs.com. Good pen, great writer---until the day I accidentally pressed too hard on slippery paper (Apica, for the curious) & sprung the nib. Oops. Luckily, nibmeisters abounded in fountain-pen-verse, so I delivered my baby to the care of Pendleton Brown & got back a pen with pizazz (& a teeny bit of stub, to boot)! It's been my first experience with a nibmeister, & everything from the service to the delivery time has been stellar. Thanks, Mr. Pendleton! This doodle note's for you!
So...I was doing my favorite pastime of looking at urushi fountain pen pics when I came upon this little gem of a review: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/149661-my-new-danitrio-and-nakaya/ Sooo pretty, I thought to myself. But if only the Danitrio on the left had a heki-tamenuri finish too...that's my favorite color combo by far. Then I thought, hey, Danitrio takes custom orders, right? Can they do one like that? Has anyone tried? Wouldn't a Short Octagaon in heki-tamenuri be absolutely gorgeous, with the green showing up on the edges against the brown? But then why isn't it one of the default options on the nibs.com page? http://www.nibs.com/danitrio-sho-hakkaku.html (Though the ki-dame is plenty magnificent as well.) Just a silly question. Wondering if anyone else knew the answer. (I could email nibs.com, but I'm actually saving up for something at the moment and don't want to be tempted by their very friendly service into buying another pen. Heh.)
