Nakaya Decapod Writer Toki-tamenuri ST

The Nakaya Decapod Writer Toki-tamenuri ST shows off the eagerly anticipated rose-pink layered finish like no other model. The underlying blush color is visible on the facet breaks and along the threads, and will become more prominent in time as the outer layers of darker urushi lacquer mature. This is an excellent choice for those who covet the now discontinued Shiro-tamenuri finish, as it features a similar brown over-layer with a slightly warmer result, and is sure to become one of the most popular finishes in the Nakaya repertoire.

Like all Nakaya urushi pens, each Decapod Writer is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber, then sent to the Wajima region in western Japan for finishing with urushi lacquer. As with all hand-made pens, colors will vary slightly from pen to pen - no two will ever be exactly alike.

This is not only a stunning work of art but also a full-sized pen that can easily become your everyday writer. Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, and can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

"Toki" refers to the Japanese Crested Ibis, a bird once abundant in Japan but now on the verge of extinction. Covered with a veil of pinkish-white feathers, this bird is a Japanese treasure, and a model for which the under-layers of the Toki-tamenuri finish are based upon.

See how the flat surface of the end caps gleam with the layered lacquer finish. You can see the ten-sided decagon shape clearly as you peer down from an angle. A gold-plated clip complements the warmth of the Toki-tamenuri finish, and allows the pen to be securely affixed to a shirt pocket.

14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.

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.

Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer.
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.
