Nakaya Portable Cigar Skeleton Akebono

For these semi-transparent pens, Nakaya uses acrylic rather than the usual ebonite for the cap and barrel. Instead of creating conventional demonstrator pens, Nakaya then chooses to use the subtle semi-transparent qualities of this material as part of the design motif itself.

Unusual in its transparency this Portable Cigar (without clip) fountain pen exploits the simple shape to great advantage.
The transparency of this red amber color is much more evident when it it back lit. Our photography only captures a hint of the nature of this material.



Achieved by coating semi-transparent resin in a dark urushi lacquer and then polishing back the ends and edges, the subtle shift from opaque to see-through is subtle and engaging.


This same two-tone concept is illustrated in red and black Urushi lacquer in the Long Akebono red and black fountain pen.

The Nakaya nib, 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 medium, broad and extra broad tip can be customized into a cursive italic, stub or oblique point.
