Congrats! The Dorsal Fin 2 and Moon Cat I find irresistible. Every time they come out, I fight the urge until they are quickly sold out, so I can save my wallet and keep my promise :D .

might as well jump in too,,,, even though I only have one Nakaya... but it is the most amazing pen. I didn't think anything would beat my M800s until this showed up.

 

Here is mine,

@Como, the Moon Cat is quite charming, and a lot less expensive than the dorsal fin, I was lucky that when I placed my order they found an extra pen, so instead of waiting for 7 to 9 months as told, I got my fountain pen in less than 50 days.

I find the Moon Cat image very peaceful. I hope that nibs.com never has one ready for sale in Portable Cigar shape :D. Enjoy your pen, so nice!

I looked at this one a lot during lockdown, very intriguing material. Do you like the texture? Beautiful pen, congratulations!

Just thought I'd leave this here... :D

this is a dangerous thread...

I tried to forget about it already in 2017...

as in terms of Nakayas I'm less than an absolute beginner...

i.e. zero Nakayas so far...

Not sure I'll be able to resist for long

A long sigar is already on my wish list...

I bought my first in 2014. Now I have about 100.

 

Posting a family photo here would be the equivalent of a megaton nuclear mic drop! Just sayin' :P

Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

rhk and Linger: Thank you for sharing photos of your beautiful Tamenuris. Congratulations!

Linger: Is the last one a 17mm Portable? I bought a long cigar and it doesn't fit in my Visconti 12-pen case, so it's always outside! But the section is very comfortable. The 17mm looks really nice, girthy kind of like MB 149.

Three aka tamenuri Nakaya’s, I have some more.

 

Please show the others as well Ruud!

 

With one on order (eta spring 2021) I currently have three: aka, heki, and toki:

Yes the last one is the 17mm portable. I actually like both, even though they have very different sections. The section of the long cigar to me seems super comfortable, but the overall size of the pen a bit too unpractical for the reason you mention.

 

Very high on my wish list is a Dorsal Fin, and I am not sure if the same not applies for that sword too...

Thought it might be worth asking here, anyone got a picture of the naka-ai and the long piccolo side by side? capped and uncapped?

@Linger: The addition of Shu made your harmonious Nakaya family photo brighter too! Congratulations! A beautiful selection.

@Linger: Would you mind me asking what pen tray is this please? I have the same problem with Visconti 12-pen case, since I bought my Nakaya Long Cigar. Thank you.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
