Ordinarily, a converter is a functional but prosaic
device for using bottled ink in a cartridge-capable fountain pen.
With Nakaya, however, even these simple objects can be made into
unique works of art...
Platinum Converter - see box front and
back at right. The basic Nakaya converter. A sturdy and large
converter produced to Nakaya's exacting standards. Our Price: $5.00 - free with every Nakaya
Pen purchase from us
Along with the popular Goldfish converter (see below), the new Tadpole, Maple Leaves, Cherry Blossoms, and Snowflower converters are now available!
The Snowflower converter has rhodium plated trim and silver maki-e snowflowers painted on the outside of the converter, while a dark red/brown is painted on the underside showing through. The Snowflower converter is $30.00
The Goldfish, Maple Leaves, Cherry Blossoms, and Tadpole Maki-e converters are $25.00 each.
If something more uniquely Japanese may
be to your liking, pictured at the near left and above is
the playful Nakaya Goldfish converter. For an extreme close
up, see the image below and left.
These Intricately maki-e painted converters use the same base as the standard converter. They
fit not only Nakaya pens, but also Platinum fountain pens.
This is another finely-crafted item characteristic of Nakaya's
skill and aesthetic.

Equilibrium (Balanced Weight)
The Equilibrium is available as the Equilibrium Long, Portable, and Piccolo size. The Piccolo has an additional end cap that is removed in order to install the weights and for this reason is different in appearance.
The Equilibrium is used to weight the back of the pen. Inserted through the end of the barrel, the rings are threaded into the barrel using the end of the tube shown above. You can add up to five rings. They come in a lovely grey suede bag and the black hard rubber tube.
The standard Equilibrium pen, as with all others comes in different finishes. It is also available as a special order in the Long, Portable, and Piccolo size as pictured above.
This is only available through special order.
