The Nakaya Portable Cigar Awai Murasaki-iro fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.

The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone.

Awai Murasaki-iro is one of three pastel colors, along with yellowish Nanohana-iro and light blue Ama-iro, that have  become part of the regular selection of Nakaya finishes available here at Classic Fountain Pens. 

The softness of the color shows off the elegant simplicity of the clipless design. Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled ink using the provided converter and can also use Platinum brand cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

 


The tradition of Urushi lacquer coating is historic and profound in Japan, where it has been used to adorn even the most utilitarian of objects. The painstaking technique, applied here to a remarkable writing instrument, gives this fountain pen its deep lustrous sheen and remarkable color.


14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.


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.

Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer. 
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.
