The Nakaya Long Writer Heki-tamenuri fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer. 

The Nakaya Long Writer Heki-tamenuri fountain pen provides an excellent canvas to showcase the earthy brown-green finish. One of the most popular colors, the Heki-tamenuri seamlessly saturates the entire cap and body of this writing instrument while at the same time allowing the under-painting to reveal on the edges.

The gold-plated clip shown here seems to bring out the best in the Heki-tamenuri color. While the Long Writer is too large to fit comfortably in most shirt pockets, the clip also functions admirably as a built-in roll-stopper.

As with all hand-painted Tame-nuri pens, the colors will vary slightly from pen to pen. No two will ever be exactly the same. With time, the outer dark layer will grow more transparent, allowing the green under-layer to show through more brightly.  See the subtle color shift on the threading of this new Long Writer Heki-tamenuri fountain pen.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, and can also use Platinum brand high-quality ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

Nakaya 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex. 

Nakaya pens ship in a solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script and lined with decorative rice paper. A fabric pen "kimono" and starter box of Platinum brand cartridges are also included, making this pen 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. 

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
