Beautiful pen! May it give you many years of writing pleasure.

The name Koi is aptly chosen.

 

As a person with partly colour-blindness these colours are not my favourite but it looks good.

 

The music nib will be very wet, I guess. I look forward to writing samples. I have a Sailor music nib which is WAY too wet for me so I am interested how the Platinum will work.

 

Enjoy your pen.

Thanks so much, sadiemagic.

 

Thank you, RMN. It is aptly named. It truly is. I've written with it already (In fact, I've used up a converter full of Apache Sunset.) and it's wet but not unduly so. I will photograph some writing samples shortly. I'd love to see the Sailor music nib and its output.

 

Thank you, bitterwonder. Missed you at the last meeting and I'm not going to tomorrow night's, either. Just too much on my plate this month. Hope all is well with you.

Wish you lot of pleasant writing with the Koi :)

 

Looking forward to the review.

Do you have to keep it in a pond and feed it?

It needs to be placed in a bowl of Apache Sunset every now and then....

Those converters are beautiful, Earthdawn.

 

RMN and perrins57, I do indeed feed it a steady diet of Apache Sunset! I'd like to vary its diet so any suggestions would be welcomed. ;)

Beautifully unique - congratulations on such a great acquisition.

 

I like your samples also. :)
