An absolutely stunning pen. 

Each Nakaya pen is hand-turned in Nakaya's Tokyo's workshop from sustainably harvested ebonite hard rubber. Hand-finishing is done by skilled urushi and Maki-e artists in Wajima on the west coast of Japan. Complex techniques such as the chinkin engraving on this pen are passed on from master artist to student in a process that has now endured for hundreds of years.

The pen is provided with your choice of Nakaya 14k solid gold nib, which can also serve as an excellent starting point for many of our exclusive nib customizations. Each pen purchase includes a softwood presentation box which includes a fabric pen kimono and starter pack of Platinum brand ink cartridges.
