Each Nakaya pen is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber in Nakaya's Tokyo workshop, and the Urushi lacquer finishing is accomplished by skilled artists in the Wajima region of western Japan. As Urushi lacquer is a natural substance, some variance in color is to be expected - no two pens will ever be exactly alike.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled ink using the provided converter, and can also usePlatinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.


The Nakaya Naka-ai Cigar in Kikyo is provided with your choice of solid gold 14k single-tone nib in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, orExtra Broad, with Fine Soft, Medium Soft, andSuper Extra Fine nibs also available. 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.



Nakaya pens ship in a solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script and lined with decorative rice paper. A fabric pen "kimono" and starter box of Platinum brand cartridges are also included, making this pen 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.
