Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Milky Way II

The spiraling raden Milky Way motif has become a favorite with Nakaya customers, and the new Piccolo Cigar Milky Way II, also called the Manten, augments the beauty of this design by adding a starry backdrop realized in the most finely ground abalone shell.

Each pen is hand-finished by skilled Maki-e artists in the traditional craft center of Wajima on the west coast of Japan in a process which can take six months to a year or more. We are an authorized Nakaya dealer.

More than just a beautiful work of Maki-e Art, the Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Milky Way II is also a superb writing instrument, provided with your choice of 14k solid gold nib. Our complimentary nib tuning services adjust optimum pressure and ink flow to your personal writing characteristics, and our exclusive nib customizations can add additional character and distinctiveness to your writing on the page.

The pen utilizes Nakaya's convenient cartridge-converter system - it can fill using Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges, and it can also use any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with a Platinum brand ink converter, provided by us free of charge with your order. The softwood presentation box with kanji-style script and fabric pen kimono make this pen a lovely gift item, and a starter pack of Platinum ink cartridges is also included.
