Nakaya Decapod Writer Aka-tamenuri TW

The Decapod Writer TW involves amazing topology. Not only does this pen have ten facets running from end to end the cap and barrel twist from one to the other. As well, the Aka-tamenuri surface reveals the planes and edges in smooth layers of under-painting and semi transparent over-color.

The Nakaya Decapod Writer Aka-tamenuri TW is one of the most distinctive design and finish combinations offered by Nakaya. This is a pen like nothing else available today.

Each pen is handcrafted in meticulously exact fashion making it a pleasure to hold. Nakaya’s multi-thread barrel allows this pen to be quickly capped and uncapped, but not every thread will properly align the facets in the closed position - it may take more than one try to find a thread that will properly set the alignment.

Each "flat" panel contains a dark center and light edges accentuating the twist of this pen. 

 

The Nakaya smooth-writing nibs are also well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.


The Nakaya Decapod Writer TW can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. Nakaya pens can also use Platinum brand top quality ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, and a fabric pen "kimono" are all included with this pen, making it a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.

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.
