Nakaya 17mm Long Cigar Chinkin Dragonflies
The Nakaya 17mm Diameter Long Cigar Chinkin Dragonflies fountain pen is a striking portrayal of dragonflies and flowers set against a backdrop of rich Heki-tamenuri. While the standard size Long pen has a diameter of 15mm, this version adds an additional 2mm. This may seem like a small difference, yet the extra diameter is surprisingly significant in adding greater heft and dimension to this pen. Not only is this model the longest that Nakaya has to offer, but it is also the widest across, making it a perfect choice to showcase the intricate Maki-e artistry on this pen.

After the base color is applied, the Maki-e artist uses the Chinkin technique to carefully engrave the dots and lines of the dragonfly motif using a sharp instrument. Gold and colored powders are then used to fill in the lines, resulting in an elegant portrait of the insect in its habitat.
Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. They can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available, as are a wide range of other options and accessories.
