Nakaya Piccolo Writer Heki-tamenuri

The Piccolo Writer in Heki-tamenuri fountain pen has become one of the most appreciated and popular colors/designs that Nakaya offers.  The lighter greenish under-painting shows through at every edge including the barrel threads.  This color is over-painted with a semi-transparent darker natural urushi lacquer which, in time, becomes even more transparent. The colors become more lively the longer the pen is used.

If simplicity is the highest form of elegance, this would be it. Nakaya pens achieve greatness by virtue of its streamlined design, excellent materials, flawless surface and saturated colors. Shown here is the Piccolo Writer (with clip) fountain pen in Heki-tamenuri (brown-green).


The Urushi tradition is historic and profound in Japan, where lacquer ware has adorned everything from body armor to kitchen objects for centuries. This technique, though painstaking, gives this fountain pens its deep lustrous sheen and subtle color shift.

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 a minimum of three months to complete. 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.

The Nakaya nib, proudly imprinted Nakata, the family name of the manufacturer is made of solid 14K gold.
Each of these nibs is suitable for our customization to extra flexible. The larger tips can be customized into architect's, cursive italic, stub or oblique points. Flexibility can be added to the soft fine and soft medium nibs.
