One of the most distinctive pen models created by Nakaya, the Dorsal Fin Version 2 is created by applying multiple layers of Urushi lacquer over a period of months to create the fin shape on the cap and barrel. The surface is then completed in either smooth Urushi or stone texture Ishime-Kanshitsu finish.
Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, and a fabric pen "kimono" are all included with this pen, making it a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.
Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer.
