Ralph of Regalia Writing Labs is a mad genius. Sitting at Golden Unicorn eating dim sum in Chinatown, Manhattan, I asked him, "Man.. tell me about how you cam up with the wacky idea to make these nibs." He'd given me an overview once before in Chicago, but with limited time, I never got the full story.
To make matters short, Ralph had always wanted a Sailor Nagahara King Eagle nib. Due to the retirement of Mr. Nagahara - Sailor's in-hour nib-master - the price skyrocketed and Ralph was afraid he'd never be able to get his hands on one. So what did this insane 20-something do? He went out and made one.
Starting with the Trilogy, Ralph created his own variant of the King Eagle based on the Jowo nib platform. Ralph buys Jowo nibs in bulk, welds the nibs together using a proprietary method, mills out the stack to create gorgeous designs, grinds the nibs into a cohesive single unit.
There's not a single thing on the market that can compare with this nib; give yourself gift of trying one.
