Wow.

 

I've never come across any photo or mention of this pen before, and I thought the 'Gathered' ribbed design was something particular to the Platinum brand or, more narrowly, its #3776 line of fountain pens.

 

Doubly wow for the asking price. Too rich for me, especially when I already have an 'old design' Naginata Concord nib on a boring plain black Sailor Profit21 pen body, which I bought some five years ago.

 

However, I'll say this: the 21K gold NK nib is certainly more interesting and commanding of attention than the Naginata Togi nib. I don't see how the Togi nib is supposed to stylistically work for writing in kanji (which, in most instances, is just rendered in something akin to the kaishu script rendered in Chinese hanzi), but I can certainly see how the NK nib is conducive to Asian calligraphy-with-a-rigid-metal-nibbed writing instrument.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

The 3776 gathered has been on my radar for a while, and the 50% markup they sell at is reasonable. But $1000+, WOW! Very Hard to justify this price, even with the Naginata Concord nib.
