No clip or other encumbrance distracts from the streamlined form of the Nakaya Long Cigar in Shu Polished finish. 

This Nakaya fountain pen is made of hard rubber and coated with Urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the Urushi (sap) and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes three months to complete.

The extra long gripping section is particularly comfortable in the fingers. The long sized pen balances beautifully without posting the cap. We recommend the Nakaya pen pillow to keep this pen in its place on your desk.

These hard rubber pens are cut on a foot treadle hand lathe by a very senior craftsman in the Nakaya Tokyo plant. He uses hand tools to cut the basic shapes of the pens as well as to finish the connecting screws between the cap and the barrel.

The surface finish exhibits a level of craftsmanship and attention that we only seen in the finest pens. 
Hand-painted Maki-e converters are available.

This urushi lacquer will only grow more beautiful with time.
