These pens are hand turned from solid rod stock, then lacquered with multiple layers of natural resin. 

Even with its long size, this writing instrument is extremely well-balanced in the hand.

In matte black finish, raw ebonite is given a thin layer of clear Urushi finish to protect against oxidation and wear. Ebonite hard rubber is a classic material for quality fountain pens - many ebonite pens produced a hundred years ago and more are still in everyday usage. The non-reflective surface gives off a subtle sheen and provides textural intrigue in the hand.

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.

Though made available in the full range of Nakaya nibs, the ruthenium-plated nib complements the stealthy look of the matte black finish and provides just the right amount of contrast.

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.
