Nakaya Desk Pen Araishu

A classic fountain pen color realized in natural urushi finish, the Nakaya Desk Pen Araishu showcases the sleek minimalism of this company's style. Each pen is hand-turned from ebonite hard rubber, then hand-finished in the traditional craft center of Wajima on the west coast of Japan.

Our complimentary nib tuning completes the process by adjusting optimal pressure and ink flow to your own personal writing preferences. Our optional nib customizations can provide for additional character and distinctiveness in your writing on the page. We are the sole authorized Nakaya dealer in the English-speaking world.
