The hairline finish on the Piccolo Writer (with clip) absorbs light creating a soft smooth surface. Seen here with the ruthenium (smokey silver) plated clip and nib, the effect is a writing instrument with quiet elegance.
The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone - consult our Nakaya Nibs page for details.
What makes this pen so special is the quiet authority that this material conveys. It is durable and not flashy while revealing the elegant tapered Piccolo shape.

Although the full range of Nakaya nibs is made available, the ruthenium-plated nib pictured here complements the sleek, stealthy matte black finish.
Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, and a fabric pen "kimono" are all included with this pen, making it a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.
