The Nakaya Piccolo Writer Midori fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with your choice of solid gold 14k single-tone nib inExtra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad,or Extra Broad, with Fine Soft, Medium Soft, and Super Extra Fine nibs also available.
Coated in many layers of Urushi resin, this writing instrument is enrobed in a rich, lush dark green finish. This simple elegant shape, with its turned tapered pyramidal cap and smooth transition between the cap and barrel, is an exercise in spare design. Traditionally, Japanese people have admired pines or evergreens as the symbol of the vitality of plants as well as immortality. Over time the Urushi lacquer will become even more vibrant and bright, though it is initially quite deep in color.
The Nakaya Piccolo Writer can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. Nakaya pens can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
At a closed length of 5.12" and a weight of 22 grams, this is a more compact fountain pen than the Naka-ai or Neo Standard, yet will fit comfortably in most hands without posting the cap. Light reflects and refracts off of the surface of the softly coned end caps.
Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
