Nakaya Naka-ai Cigar Ao-tamenuri

Ao-tamenuri is a traditional Japanese lacquerware technique that involves applying multiple layers of lacquer to a fountain pen to create a deep and lustrous green or blue-black finish. The term "Ao-tamenuri" translates to "green multi-layering" in English, reflecting the process's emphasis on building up layers to achieve a rich, vibrant color. Though this color is now most popular for Nakaya's Ascending Dragon designs, the tapered shape of the Naka-ai Cigar provides an excellent showcase for this rich hue.
