Nakaya's Dorsal Fin pens have proven to be extremely popular with pen lovers - the fin shape on the cap is both aesthetically striking and also serves as a built-in roll-stopper.
This pen is made by applying multiple layers of urushi lacquer to the height of the fin. Mark Twain, referring to a similar feature on the 1920's Conklin pen, called it a "profanity-saver: It cannot roll off the desk."
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.
The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone.
14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer.
