Being so glossy, fingerprints and the oils of your hands are attracted to the pen which can overtime give it a bit of a slick feel which made me want to wipe it down every so often. I traditionally don't have very sweaty hands (to much info?...), but wanted to bring this up as the feel and texture was noticeable over time while writing.
To speak to the quality of the finish, the application is pretty impeccable, namely, there isn't a flaw to be found. There are a few spots on the pen where the urushi stops and the ebonite reappears like on the inner threads of the cap and the treading at the section, but the lines are crisp and perfect. Pretty impressive all done by hand.
The cap does not post which is probably traditional in cigar-style urushi pens like this, but something to consider.
In hand while writing the pen is large, but due to the low weight it isn't cumbersome and is actually extremely comfortable. I notice my grip changed some due to the diameter of the pen. I tend to be a very traditional "triangle" grip writer, but I find my thumb drifting back behind the threads rather than trying to reach down being a bit of a stretch if that makes sense. It did create a shifted writing experience, but for me didn't bother my lettering. I could see this as a potential issue for some though if you run into the same grip situation.
