Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Metal Thread Kikyo

Dark blue Kikyo is one of the most popular solid color finishes for Nakaya Urushi pens. This solid blue color pen is inspired by the Chinese Bellflower. Each Nakaya pen is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber in Nakaya's Tokyo workshop, and the Urushi lacquer finishing is accomplished by skilled artists in the Wajima region of western Japan. As Urushi lacquer is a natural substance, some variance in color is to be expected - no two pens will ever be exactly alike.

If you have always enjoyed Nakaya's ebonite and urushi fountain pens, but would prefer a writing instrument with a bit more heft than these provide, the new Metal Thread in Kikyo may be the pen for you.

With its rich dark blue finish, the Nakaya Kikyo fountain pen is as elegant as it is practical. This is a pen that will fit comfortably in most hands. Notice the tail of the barrel, creating a subtle and considered shape that is hand crafted from solid hard rubber and finished in glossy Urushi lacquer.

Nakaya 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.
