Sky blue Ama-iro has quickly become one of the most popular of Nakaya's solid color Urushi finishes, and the tapered lines of the new Deskpen in Ama-iro provide an appropriate canvas for this pleasing hue. As with all Nakaya ebonite pens, this Deskpen has been hand-crafted from natural hard rubber and then finished with Urushi lacquer in the Wajima region on the west coast of Japan - production of this first order required eight months. Our price $650, $700 with the rhodium-plated nib seen here.
