Theroc - Now that you pointed that out, I see that the diameter toward the nib isn't that much smaller. Looking at a photo without the cap alongside, it appears much less tapered. How do you like the pen @Theroc ?? I do love the look of it. I have been looking into the different copper pens/manufacturers. Definitely would like to find the right one when the times comes.... ( However, I just joined the Ensso PIUMA brass and waiting for delivery of two customs from ASA , so not joining this particular drop. )

I have the aluminum version and quite love it. I don't mind copper and brass but if they are up against titanium or even high-grade aluminum they loose. I'm waiting for the titanium version to drop again, this time hopefully with a titanium nib option.

how easy is it to refill? Im no expert in fountain pens and have only ever had the pilot metropolitan which was very easy to fill.

The Pilot MR uses a bladder converter which you squeeze. The Namisu comes with a piston converter which you twist. Almost everyone who has more than one fountain pen prefers the latter. I think it's very easy to fill. You can also use cartridges with the Namisu which are basically foolproof.
