The Piccolo is the one of the shortest of the Nakaya urushi pens. The name Piccolo comes from the smallest of the woodwind instruments. Shown here is the Piccolo Housoge Cigar (No Clip) in Kuro-tamenuri with the black charcoal inlay.
An artist engraves a motif using the unique "Chinkin" technique on the Kuro-tamenuri urushi lacquer surface.
It is just big enough to fit easily in the hand without posting the cap.
"Housoge" is a flower in the imagination; a blossom in paradise. Similar to the Palmet flower, it is assumed to be a magnificent flower pattern, and a kind of typical arabesque pattern of the Chinese Tang Dynasty and Japanese Tenpyo period.
This simple elegant shape, with its turned tapered pyramidal cap and smooth transition between the cap and barrel, is an exercise in spare design.
Hand engraving extends from the barrel and cap to the gripping section, adding a tactile property to the feel of the pen between your fingers.
