Heki-tamenuri finish is applied to this pen in a traditional and time-intensive process by skilled urushi artists in Wajima on the west coast of Japan. The cap and barrel are hand-turned at the Nakaya workshop in Tokyo, and final nib assembly and testing is done in the Classic Fountain Pen offices in Los Angeles.

This is a cartridge-converter pen which can fill using Platinum brand ink cartridges or any bottled fountain pen ink when using the provided converter.

Each Nakaya pen ships in a softwood presentation box decorated with kanji-style script and containing a fabric pen kimono and starter pack of cartridges. Nakaya pens make for lovely and very special gift items. Each pen is inspected and tested before final shipment to the customer.
