The Nakaya Piccolo Writer Chinkin Shinobu Red and Black fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer.

Chinkin is a technique in which a sharp instrument is used to cut the fine, narrow lines of a motif onto a lacquered surface. The lines are then filled in with metallic or pigmented powder.

This is a time-intensive method, and these pens take five months or more to be created. Notice how the Shinobu pattern is cut into the gripping section, in a display of meticulous attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.

The Piccolo Writer Chinkin Shinobu Red and Black fountain pen is a smaller, compact pen, but one which still fits comfortably in the hand. With its softly coned cap ends and simple shape, this Nakaya model provides the perfect canvas for the intricate frond engravings. See the lush fern leaves as they spread out over of the bright red barrel below. 

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter and can also use Platinum brand high quality ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
