Orange has a long and interesting history in the world of pens. First seen on Waterman's hard rubber pens in around 1910, it became a famous color in the Parker Big Red, a ground breaking pen of the 1920's. (The Big Red is actually an orange color similar to this one.)

The clipless cigar model reveals the pure form of the Portable pen. 

Araishu in Japanese translates from "shu" for red and "arai" for laundry. The meaning of the combined word suggests a red that has been washed to the extent that it is no longer red; it is now a pale red. The acceptance of a quality that comes with time is a hallmark of Japanese language. In this case when we embrace the passage of time we have araishu.


The Nakaya nib, imprinted Nakata, the family name of the manufacturer is made of solid 14K gold.

Each of these nibs is suitable for our customization to extra flexible. The medium, broad and extra broad tip can be customized into a cursive italic, stub or oblique point.
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.
