The Dorsal Fin is one of the most time-intensive models produced by Nakaya - the finish with distinctive fin shape on each pen can require up to a year to be produced by skilled artisans in the traditional craft center of Wajima on the west coast of Japan. The pen utilizies Nakaya's convenient cartridge-converter system - it can fill with any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the converter, provided by us free of charge with your order, and can also utilize Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges.

Each is provided with a special paulownia softwood presentation decorated with kanji-style script. A fabric pen kimono and starter pack of ink cartridges are included along with the converter.
