The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Black fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.

The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone.

The name Piccolo comes from the smallest of the woodwind instruments, and in true form the Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Black fountain pen is one of the shortest of the Nakaya Urushi pens.

Coated in many layers of Urushi resin, this pen is a lustrous deep black. The Cigar model in Black is perhaps the simplest of the Piccolos, unadorned yet sophisticated. Because of this it is also one of the least expensive of the Urushi pens, making it a great introduction to the Nakaya line.

This is a more compact fountain pen than the other Nakaya models, yet will fit comfortably in most hands and is the perfect size to easily stow in a shirt pocket. It is not too heavy or too light, instead striking the perfect balance in the hand.

This simple elegant shape, with its turned tapered pyramid cap and smooth transition between the cap and barrel, is an exercise in spare design. 

The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar 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.

14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.


Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, and a fabric pen "kimono" are all included with this pen, making it a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.
