Yeah, it's not real arco - ASc does those - but I tried the nib on the base Grande Bellezza model and omg. So soft, it's like writing on clouds, but none of the finishes did anything for me.* Knowing Dante there's no chance of metal, wood or leather at sane prices, so I went for the arco. That's an M, I'll have to have it reground. The Nakaya is a Broad Stub Oblique, from CFP/Nibs.com. In rhodium, because the pen is also the rhodium finish deep gloss model. I'm not a huge fan of gold. * I really don't like plastic/resin/naked ebonite/celluloid pens.
