Nakaya celebrates two decades of existence as the artisanal offshoot of the larger Platinum Pen Company with a pair of limited edition pens which epitomize the Nakaya approach to style, design, and writing quality. In this pen, layered Aka-tamenuri is used for the cap and barrel of the pen, while darker Kuro-tamenuri is used for the decorative string-wrapping overlay. The distinctive new cylindrical model being introduced, described by Nakaya as being halfway between the Portable and Long sizes in length, is expected to be a comfortable fit for most users.
The distinctive new cylindrical model being introduced, described by Nakaya as being halfway between the Portable and Long sizes in length, is expected to be a comfortable fit for most users. The cap features a double-layered cast sterling silver crown inspired both by "Koetsuji-gaki," a criss-crossed bamboo fence in Koetsuji Temple in Kyoto, and "Namako-kabe," a traditional Japanese wall design which utilizes square tiles joined with raised plaster in a diagonal pattern. On the cap top, the Nakaya trademark and limited edition serial number are engraved.
Like all Nakaya fountain pens, the 20th Anniversary Aka-tamenuri Kuro-tamenuri String-Rolled utilizes Nakaya's convenient cartridge-converter fill system - the pen can fill with any bottled ink when fitted with the provided converter, and can also use the disposable ink cartridges from parent company Platinum. The pen ships in a softwood presentation box which includes a special stamp on the lid commemorating the company's 20th anniversary. Besides the converter, a fabric pen kimono and starter pack of cartridges are also included.
Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts pressure and ink flow to your own personal preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character and distinctiveness of your writing on the page. Choose the Fine Soft nib for our noted Spencerian modification, or a Broad or Extra Broad for the Architects Point customization.
