Nakaya Long Cigar Moon

The Nakaya Long Cigar Moon utilizes silver powder over black urushi to create a raised surface evoking a lunar landscape. This use of Maki-e technique for a naturalistic, almost pictorial effect is rare for Nakaya. The pen is seen here with the rhodium-plated nib, which perfectly complements the silver gray hues of the pen's surface.

As with any pen you purchase from us, the Nakaya Long Cigar Moon qualifies for our complimentary nib tuning services, which adjust ink flow and pressure to your own personal writing characteristics. Nakaya 14k solid gold nibs also serve as excellent starting points for our exclusive nib customizations, which add flair and distinctiveness to your writing on the page and can also serve to make this pen an excellent tool for the professional or amateur calligrapher.

While a beautifully and  highly original work of Maki-e art on its own terms, this pen is also a highly practical writing instrument - the solid durability of Urushi lacquer finish means that this is a pen that can and should be used on an everyday basis. Nakaya's convenient cartridge-converter filling system allows for the use of either Platinum brand cartridges or any bottled fountain pen ink when utilizing the provided converter.

The pen ships in a softwood presentation box decorated with kanji-style script and also includes a fabric pen kimono. The tasteful packaging adds to the long-term value of this pen and also makes it an excellent gift item for special occasions.
