Nakaya Dorsal Fin Version 1 Awai-murasaki
The Nakaya Dorsal Fin Version 1 is one of the most innovative and distinctive designs created by Nakaya. Layers of Urushi lacquer are applied over a period of months to create the fin on the cap, and the surface is then completed with either smooth Urushi or stone texture Ishime-Kanshitsu finish. With either finish, this is one of the most memorable writing instruments Nakaya has produced.

Nakaya's Dorsal Fin Version 1 in Awai-Murasaki brings a lighter, pastel finish to the traditional repertoire of hues for which Nakaya is known, and makes a bold statement with its unique shape and raised cap fin. Muted, dusty purple drenches the entire surface of this structurally sleek fountain pen, creating an interesting juxtaposition of architectural lines and playful coloring.
The single cap fin takes on the appearance of a billowed sail when the Dorsal Fin Version 1 Awai-Murasaki fountain pen is viewed from its side. Multiple layers of Urushi lacquer are applied over a period of months to create the raised fin - this is one of the most time-intensive procedures utilized by Nakaya.
Smooth purple urushi lacquer coats the cap and body of the pen, adding a distinctive muted shine.
