Celebrate with me the arrival of a Nakaya Decapod and a custom pen roll from Chan's Handmade:

The Decapod looks nice. What does the section look like?

 

Looks just like the photo on John's web site:

Is there a dislike button? You made me drooling to death now :D

 

I need to get my hand on one of this wrap, it is so beautiful and goes well with the pens.

Thanks! I'm blown away (and so is my bank account) with all these beautiful huge pens, and the wrap really is perfect. Look for Chan's Handmade on eBay. They communicate well and are eager to get you exactly what you want.

Beautiful pens and a lovely roll to match. My wife's eyes glazed when I told how much my Custom 823 should have been (I got it at a great price from someone here on FPN). I could only imagine the discussions that a similarly-loaded pen roll would spark!

Thanks! The 823 is a great pen, isn't it?

It is indeed. It is currently my favorite pen, even if it is not the pen I use the most often. I wish that Pilot offered more nib options for the 823, but even with the F nib being the finest offering for the 823, it's an excellent writing pen.

Congrats!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

That gorgeous pen roll suits your new acquisitions. 'Scuse me while I dry my screen. ;) Congrats, I hope I get to see them on the 25th.

 

I will bring them, along with some interesting birds for the Pelikan Hub.

Beautiful, and that music nib is spectacular. I saw one of these (either on the handwriting or the stub thread) that John had ground to a 30˚ L oblique. Amazing. I may just have to try that.

The oblique music nib is highly recommended.
