Nakaya Dorsal Fin v2 Heki Tamenuri, F ruthenium nib, £1,400 Only a couple of months old and yes, one of my top three pens. A good writer, beautiful, an aesthetic achievement, and it was a grail pen for me. I paid over £1,500 (including the plated nib, import charges, etc) and it took months to arrive via a very reputable European authorised dealer. You can have it this week, with a maki-e converter.
Lamy 2000 brown, F nib, £400
Comes with untouched notebook, book, etc, and barely a couple of weeks old. Clip is a lovely cola colour, brown Makrolon is rich and warm. Number 2549 of 3300. Obviously you can still find them at £490, or you could save £90 and buy mine. If the price has been holding you back, maybe that will tip you over the edge…
Cross Peerless 125 Platinum Medalist, F nib, £375
You can get the Peerless for less, but not in this rare finish. If the blue quartz / brown titanium finishes don’t appeal to you, and you don’t like a gold clip… this is the best option. Beautiful barleycorn pattern. Killer F Sailor nib.
Venvstas Magna CC, F titanium nib, £160 An unusual and astonishingly ergonomic pen. Looks like nothing else. And a very good writer, with a crisp fine nib.
GM Customs Pens Shamshir blue Nikko ebonite, F ‘arctic’ nib, £100
A LARGE seamless pen made from very pretty ebonite. The branded JoWo nib is plated and writes very well.
Gioia Alleria Nuvola, F nib, £100
A beautifully understated, large Italian piston filler with excellent F JoWo nib, for a hundred quid.
