Nakaya Naka-ai Writer Ascending Dragon Aka-tamenuri
The Nakaya Naka-ai Writer Aka-tamenuri Ascending Dragon fountain pen exhibits two forms of ascent. The dragon rises up the body of the pen from the pen's tapered tail to the cap. At the same time a much slower ascent occurs as the maki-e gold dragon under-painting slowly emerges from the layers of semi-transparent urushi lacquer. This is known as the Tame-Sukashi technique as practiced by Nakaya Pen Co.

At first glance this pen may appear to be another Naka-ai Aka-tamenuri (Reddish-Red) fountain pen, but upon closer examination the image of a golden dragon can be seen through the deep layers of Urushi.
The fascinating feature of this pen is that the image literally "ascends" with use as the image of the dragon comes up as the pen is handled. In this slow process the owner's hand and everyday wear will give this pen the beauty of age. The smooth tapered shape of the Naka-ai model also adds to the illusion of an ascending dragon. As the pen slopes to its fullest point, the dragon appears to rise to the top as well.
The cap and barrel are hand-turned from high quality ebonite, the classic material for high quality fountain pens. Ebonite pens produced a hundred years ago and more are still in everyday usage with many aficionados.
