The Nakaya Deskpen in Ama-iro is handcrafted from ebonite hard rubber and Urushi laquer and can be furnished with any of the standard range of Nakaya 14k nibs.


The Nakaya double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone.


With its long tapered shape and sky blue color, the Nakaya Deskpen in Ama-iro evokes elegant simplicity. The shape of the deskpen allows for visual and tactile balance, while the unique ama-iro color stands out for its bright, playful hue.

This a long but comfortable pen. The Nakaya Deskpen is perfect for signing documents, addressing letters, or even as an everyday writer.

Like all Nakaya Urushi pens, each Deskpen is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber, then sent to the Wajima region in western Japan for finishing with urushi lacquer. As with all hand-made pens, colors will vary slightly from pen to pen - no two will ever be exactly alike.

You can see the way the barrel tapers to provide balance, and to allow for an enhanced writing experience. The flat end cap helps balance the elongated shape of the pen.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter and can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.


14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.


When the Nakaya Deskpen in Ama-iro is in uncapped position, it can be displayed in a matching deskpen stand, which is sold separately. Together the pair creates an elegant set that looks striking on any desk at home or work.

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.

Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer. 

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.
