Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Metal Thread Shu Polished

With its vivid red finish and smooth shape, the Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Shu Polished fountain pen is a classic writing instrument. It's an excellent choice for those who want something a bit edgier than traditional black and gold, yet still neutral enough to carry as an everday writer. The metal thread adds a bit of extra weight to this fountain pen.

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 Shu Polished may be the pen for you. 

This Nakaya fountain pen is made of hard rubber or ebonite that is meticulously coated with Urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the Urushi and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes three months to complete. Because these pens are all hand painted and are original works of art, the color will vary and no two will be exactly the same. 

The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Shu Polished Metal Thread fountain pen is available standard with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.
