The Naka-ai model was designed by founder and owner John Mottishaw in collaboration with Nakaya master pen designer Shinichi Yoshida. Each Nakaya pen is hand-turned from natural ebonite hard rubber and then hand-finished by skilled artisans in the traditional craft center of Wajima on the west coast of Japan.

Nakaya pens can fill with any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the provided converter, and can also use convenient Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges. We are an authorized Nakaya dealer.
