I'm not a 1000 miles near being knowledgeable on styli, but information on the link says it is bonded shibata... not nude... from what I know, that can mean a lot...

Since their listing says it's from Japan, it probably IS a Jico.

I wouldn't worry about bonded vs. nude from Jico; a nude Shibata would be much more expensive.
