The Naka-ai combines many of Nakaya’s most distinctive design features in a single model. At 5.9" inches long when capped, this is a pen that will be a very comfortable fit for most pen users.

Utilizing bits of colorful raden, the artist creates a rendering of the mliky way swirl. Set against a rich black backdrop the pattern is simultaneously subdued and striking.

 

Like all Nakaya Urushi pens, the Naka-ai Cigar Raden Milky Way is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber, then sent to the Wajima region in western Japan for finishing with Urushi lacquer. The Nakaya Naka-ai Writer Milky Way with Raden can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. Nakaya pens can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

 

 

These 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex - see our nib customizations page for more information. Comes standard with your choice of solid gold 14k nib in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, or Extra Broad,with Fine Soft, Medium Soft, andSuper Extra Fine nibs also available.

 

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. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand. Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer.
