  1. Some pics below of my new Nakaya Dorsal Fin v1 in Kuro-Tamenuri. Writing uses Iroshizuku Yama-Guri on Rhodia paper. I got a medium nib, tuned for medium flow and light pressure by a right-hander. Many thanks to the folks at nibs.com for their service. I love this pen. It's bigger than I usually use, but I fell for the Dorsal Fin design, and the pen is light and well-balanced so I don't feel like I'm writing with a pen designed for "heft". (If heft/weight = quality for you, this is not the right brand.) The fin does keep the pen from rolling, but not as much as a clip would, so I am still careful where I put it. The nib is perfect for me, exactly the right line width and flow, and very smooth.

    Ink For Uroshi Kuro-Tamenuri

    I have treated myself to my first-ever uroshi pen, a Nakaya from nibs.com with the kuro-tamenuri finish (black over red). I haven't received the pen yet, so I won't make any final decisions until I see it in person, but I'm pondering inks that would suit the pen. My ideas so far: Black (I have some Iroshizuku Take-Sumi) Dark Brown (I have Iroshizuku Yama-Guri, and I'm also looking at the Maruzen Sepia available from Nanami paper) Dark Red (Sailor Oku-Yama, Diamine Oxblood, ?) I don't need it to be matchy-matchy but I want it to harmonize with the pen. I don't want to match the red of the undercoat since I don't write with bright red very often. Any thoughts?
