Hand-crafted from ebonite hard rubber and equipped with 14k solid gold Bock nibs, the Eboya Natsume is made available in the Large, Medium, and Small sizes and in four different colors: Kougetsu Yellow, Kumpuu Green, Shinkai Blue, and Tanshin Red.
Each Eboya pen is hand-assembled in a process that requires a minimum of six months from start to finish. Eboya supplies the raw ebonite stock to most of the major Japanese pen manufacturers, and their skill in the manipulation of this material is readily apparent - Eboya brand fountain pens have a unique aesthetic that is distinctly their own. Not a petroleum product, this is natural ebonite sustainably harvested from the Asian rubber gum tree. As with all hand-made pens, the appearance will vary slightly from pen to pen - no two will ever be exactly the same.
Though named the Natsume Small, this fountain pen is actually more of a mid-sized pen and will be a comfortable fit in most hands.
"Eboya - Made In Tokyo" is engraved on the barrel.
Unlike the Kyouka and Ricchiku models, the Eboya Natsume utilizes a flat top. The rich yellow and black marbling extends even to the end cap. A gold clip allows you to secure the writing instrument to a shirt pocket, and also acts as a built-in roll stopper.
Bock solid gold 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex - see our nib customizations page for more information.
Eboya pens are individually handcrafted in a process requiring a minimum of three to six months.
Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
