Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Noh Mask

Realized in time-intensive iro-togidashi technique, the Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Noh Mask fountain pen is a striking work of hand-painted Maki-e art. The sensitively realized motif has a stark beauty and theatrical vividness that seems fitting for its subject matter.

The Piccolo Cigar Noh Mask qualifies for our complimentary nib tuning services, which help ensure that your Maki-e pen will not just be beautiful to look at, but also a highly reliable everyday writing instrument. Nakaya 14k solid gold nibs also serve as excellent starting points for many of our exclusive nib customizations, which can give your writing on the page a character and distinctiveness equal to the appearance of your pen.

There are currently no reviews for this product.

Originally commissioned from Nakaya by an overseas customer, the Noh Mask, or ko-omote as it is known in Japanese, serves as the subject matter for this motif, which has been realized in bright urushi finish and gold powder against a black kuro urushi background. 

The pen arrives in a softwood presentation box with kanji-style script, along with a fabric pen kimono, starter pack of ink cartridges, and a complimentary converter. The tasteful packaging and presentation adds to the value and appropriateness of this pen as a unique gift item.
