This Nakaya Light Gloss Briarwood fountain pen combines natural briarwood with warm gold trim.

The smooth black non-threaded section is perfectly tapered and provides a comfortable grip for most users. As with many objects made to last a very long time, this wood material will only grow richer with use. The combination of briarwood grain, polished finish, and warm gold trim creates an elegant yet practical writing instrument.

The Briarwood Light Gloss is a durable and well-designed cartridge-converter pen. With its easily removable snap cap, the tight seal keeps ink fresh longer without drying out.


These smooth-writing nibs are also well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.

Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, a starter box of Platinum ink cartridges, 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.
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.
