I really love this pen, so I have to talk about it at length. This is the Classic Pens LB5 (King Profit) fountain pen in the Kaen finish, with a Nagahara Cross Point nib. That’s a mouthful!

    I love the look of the pen. I do not love the price (for 30% of it my credit card would be already in use) and the small converter; Con-70 would be just perfect, there is lots of space to accommodate it.

      Since it is a Sailor pen, the CON-70, which is a propriety Pilot converter will not fit,

        Yes, I know – I am just trying to find the simplest way to expand the ink capacity without introducing piston/vacuum filler… As there are already Pilot-mount adapters available.

    Gorgeous pen! It’s nice to see you enjoying a non-Western pen, as usually your tastes run the other way. It does look as if the balance on that pen is perfect. 🙂
