The Cigar model is without a clip, and shows off the streamlined shape of the Decapod with its crisp, sleek facets. The facets of this fountain pen follow from end to end in a long smooth curve. It is a shape that can be described by pure geometry except that it is subtly more complex. In the end it is the eye and the hand that this shape most satisfies.


The ten-sided shape has another function. Because it is not round in cross section it is not likely to roll off a desk. The Decapod gives facets an entire new meaning.

This urushi application appears to glow from within. The darker outer color "pulls back" from edges leaving an impression of inner light. This occurs on every edge of this pen, so the faceted models exhibit many opportunities for this effect. The urushi lacquer acts something like a ceramic glaze, emphasizing the form.
The ends of this pen are beveled to finish the facets. Not only does this trim the cap and barrel end, but it also provides a rounder edge, more likely to wear evenly.

The Nakaya Cigar Decapod in Aka-tamenuri is provided with your choice of solid gold 14k nib, well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flexibility.

Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, 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.
