Nakaya Deskpen Sumi
Fountain Pen
This is possibly the most understated fountain pen that we have ever come across.
The long taper as well as the extended gripping section give this desk pen balance in the fingers.
Nakaya Desk Pen Sumi

Nothing is as difficult to do well as simplicity. It demands the highest level of craft as well as design. And nothing shows design as clearly as flat black. The Sumi finish urushi on this desk pen sinks into ones fingers like fabric.

Notice the precision with which the cap meets the barrel.


Sumi ink is a carbon based ink used in traditional Japanese brush painting. It is used here, combined with Urushi lacquer, to achieve a deep rich matte black.

(The rhodium plated nib seen below adds $50)

Nakaya Desk Fountain Pen in Sumi Finish

Although the desk pen can work well alone, it is beautifully complemented by the Sumi base and trumpet. The simplicity of this base matches the design of the pen. There is very little as satisfying as sliding this pen out of its holder, using it and sliding it back into a perfect fit.
