Nakaya Naka-ai Cigar Araishu
Orange is a classic color for fountain pens, and the Naka-ai Cigar Araishu pen uses this rich Urushi finish with subtlety and aplomb. Is it the tapered contours of the Naka-ai which show off the color, or the distinctive Araishu finish which highlights the shape of the pen? Each pen lover can make her or his own decision.

The Nakaya Naka-ai Cigar Araishu fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.
Designed by Nakaya master pen designer Shinichi Yoshida in collaboration with Classic Fountain Pen's John Mottishaw, the Naka-ai, with its peaked ends and tapered body, combines many of Nakaya’s most distinctive design features in a single model. "Naka-ai" has the meaning of middle or in-between, and brings to mind the Middle Way of Buddhist practice with its emphasis on balance, integrity, and centeredness. Appropriately enough, the Naka-ai occupies a midway position between Nakaya's smaller Piccolo series pens and the longer Deskpen - this is a pen that will be a very comfortable fit for most pen users.
This is a pen that will be a very comfortable fit for most pen users. Like all Nakaya Urushi pens, the Naka-ai Cigar Araishu is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber, then sent to the Wajima region in western Japan for finishing with Urushi lacquer. As Urushi is a natural substance, slight variations from batch to batch are to be expected - no two pens will ever be exactly alike.
