Nakaya Prices Rising Friday, July 1st
Prices on most Nakaya ebonite urushi pens will be rising on Friday, July 1st - if you would like to secure present pricing on these beautiful handcrafted writing instruments, you must place your order with us and give it final approval before 1:00 pm Pacific time on Thursday, June 30th.
This will be the first Nakaya price rise in over four years, and we strongly suggest ordering as soon as possible to secure the pen of your choice. Prices on most solid and Tame-nuri finish pens will be rising by $100 or more, while to the best of our knowledge, the pricing on Dorsal Fin pens, the new Metal Thread pens, and on special edition pens in Maki-e technique will not be rising at this time.
Platinum Pens has a well-earned reputation for creating stunning Maki-e pens at very reasonable prices, and the new Kurikara-ken, now in stock, is a superb example. Realized in raised Taka Maki-e technique and using the same pen body as the popular Izumo series, it is made available with your choice of 18k solid gold ruthenium-plated nib in Fine, Medium, or Broad. The first 600 are individually numbered, and the pen ships in a handcrafted dark wood presentation box and includes a Maki-e converter, special pen kimono, ink bottle, and starter ink cartridge. Retail $1500, our price $1200.
Normally made available by Pelikan only in Medium, we are able to provide the M1000 Raden Sunrise Red with any M1000 18k two-tone nib unit, available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, stock Oblique Medium, or stock Oblique Double Broad. Retail $2500,
our price $1999.

Nakaya Introducing New Metal Thread Pens in Piccolo and Portable Sizes
If you have always loved Nakaya ebonite urushi pens but would prefer a writing instrument with a little more heft, the new Nakaya Metal Thread pens may be just what you're looking for. Substituting metal screw threads for the hand-turned ebonite threads on most other Nakaya pens, these pens weigh an additional eight grams each, and will also be priced at $100 less than the comparable all-ebonite pens after Nakaya prices rise on July 1st.
We'll have more images as well as information on expected delivery times later this week, but with interest in these pens growing, we are now able to begin taking pre-orders. Pens are available in both the Cigar and Writer versions, in the Piccolo and Portable sizes only, and available finishes are Aka-tamenuri, Black, Heki-tamenuri, Kikyo, Kuro-tamenuri, Shu Polished, and Toki-tamenuri. Each pen is priced at $550 each, and we're happy to say that prices on these Metal Thread pens only will not be rising after July 1st...
