Tami means “little pool of water” and nuri means painting, and when a word meaning a pigment is placed in front of it such as kuro, we have kuro-tami-nuri, or a blackish transparent painted surface. This black color is painted over red here, which allows the transparency of the black to reveal the red underneath; a traditional favorite of many people.
The urushi tradition is historic and profound in Japan, where lacquer ware has adorned utilitarian 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 three months to complete.
