Was offered a Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Black 14K Fine (plus some others) in trade for my Omas 360 (Blue/Rose Gold 2011) and Sailor 1911L (Black/Rhodium, 21K H-MF).

Bit on it since it would be like a little sister to my larger Mae West with an 18K (Jowo "T") Factory Stub.

Sweet! I had one on order but backed out at the last minute.

Yea, I would not be able to afford them normally so it was nice that it came up in a trade offer.

De-inked a couple, and changed the Nakaya over to Tsuki-yo, so new write sample on a Small Rhodia No.12 pad (300 DPI Scan) and showing everything currently inked (7 total right now).

It's wet to the point that I barely have to touch it, and still kind of getting used to the shorter unposted size.

My concern on the Piccolo was the step-down from barrel to theads. Do your fingers come in contact? If it does I'm guessing this isn't an issue for you, as I noticed the Platinum 3776 has a step-down as well, although much less pronounced than on Nakaya.

Great shots btw--really impressed with the black urushi.

The stepdown didn't really bother me, seemed subtle and given the size somewhat gave me a spot for the crook of my thumb to rest against, but it's not bad, I've had pens where the step downs were real annoying mainly because of how sharp they were. A lot of the 'classic' pens like the Century 3776 do have a step down, but they're not bad (I've had three century 3776s)

I don't notice the step down at all with my Pic either. The section is so comfortable, and the pen so light it's a complete non issue for me!
