Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 79

 Today's featured new pen-related acquisition belongs to Stuart - a Namisu 'Naos fountain pen', which just came out this summer after a successful Kickstarter campaign...

Stuart writes: "The Namisu arrived this afternoon, and I’m very happy with it. It’s beautifully made, very solid, and the Bock Medium nib is excellent.  The cap does not post but it’s a big pen and works fine unposted."

 "You feel the edge where the barrel and section meet, but that’s because of the different shapes of the two - round section and hexagonal barrel.  It’s there but not too bothersome, though some people would be annoyed by it. So 13 days from Scotland to here!!"


Yes, though their company name sounds vaguely Japanese, Namisu is actually based in Fife, Scotland! For more information on this company (which makes other writing instruments of minimalist design), check out their official website here. Many thanks to Stuart for sharing his cool new fountain pen with us!
