With its peaked ends and tapered body, the Naka-ai combines many of Nakaya's most distinctive design features in a single model. This is a pen that will be a very comfortable fit for most pen users. Nakaya's convenient cartridge-converter filling sytem allows for the use of any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the reusable converter, supplied by free of charge with your order. The pen can also use Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges.

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.
