Nakaya Naka-ai Writer Jidai Nuri
The Nakai-Writer Jidai-nuri is a tactile delight due to its uneven finish, and the understated semi-gloss finish feels natural in the hand. The cap and barrel designed by Nakaya master pen designer Shinichi Yoshida in collaboration with Classic Fountain Pen's John Mottishaw 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.

The creation of this pen requires a time-intensive multi-step process. For the cap and barrel, Black Urushi is layered over a base coating of rich red Shu. A careful polishing process artfully removes sections of the Black Urushi, exposing the underlayer in a manner which mimics natural weathering. For the gripping section, the process is reversed, with the Shu Urushi applied on top of a Black Urushi base. A gold clip allows the pen to be securely affixed to a shirt pocket, adding an element of practicality to this sculptural object.
