Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Negoro Red Cloth
Nakaya Urushi pens are meant to age, with the underlying color becoming more apparent as the Urushi lacquer matures. "Wabi-Sabi" is the term used in Japanese for objects whose aesthetic value increases with use and wear.
Taking this idea to its logical extreme, the Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Negoro Red Cloth honors the aging process even more by featuring "cracks" artfully engraved onto the surface of the cap, barrel, and gripping section.

The Negoro weathering process is particularly painstaking and time-consuming - production of these pens usually requires six months or more. Here the Negoro weathering process set against a backdrop of rich red color makes a nice contrast.
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.
Nakaya pens ship in a solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script and lined with decorative rice paper. A fabric pen kimono and starter box of Platinum brand cartridges are also included, making this pen a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.
Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer.
