Nakaya Briarwood Light Matte

With its lighter grain and soft finish, Nakaya's Briarwood Light Matte fountain pen is the Briarwood Deep Matte fountain pen's fraternal twin. The natural red of the briarwood balances the ochre-colored grain, while gold trim brings out the warmth in both shades.

In line with Nakaya's aesthetic favoring natural materials and simple, streamlined shapes, this Briarwood Light Matte combines briarwood with warm gold trim. 14k solid gold smooth-writing nibs make these excellent everyday writers. 

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 wood grain is reminiscent of auburn flames flickering in a fireplace.

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


Nakaya's Briarwood Light Matte fountain pen can be furnished with any of the standard range of Nakaya 14k nibs.

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.
