The Byakudan-Nuri technique utilized here involved sprinkling the finest grade of gold and silver powders over red Shu urushi which itself has been applied over a black Kuro-roiro base. Over this, the Akitsu-shima motif is realized in another layer of Kuro-roiro utilizing raised Yakou Maki-e technique.
Each Nakaya pen is hand-turned at the Nakaya workshop in Tokyo from natural ebonite hard rubber which is sustainably harvested from the wild rubber gum tree. Hand-finishing in natural urushi lacquer, itself refined from sap of the Japanese lacquer tree, is then accomplished by skilled artisans in the traditional craft center of Wajima on the west coast of Japan. After final assembly and inspection in Tokyo, the pen arrives at our Los Angeles workshop for nib setting, tuning, and customizations if requested.
Nakaya pens can fill using any standard fountain pen ink when fitted with the easy to use converter, provided by us free of charge with your purchase. Consult our bottled ink offerings for a wide variety of inks we can recommend. The pen can also fill using convenient disposable Platinum brand ink cartridges.
Each Nakaya pen ships in a special paulownia softwood presentation box decorated with kanji-style script. A fabric pen kimono and starter pack of Platinum ink cartridges are included along with the converter. We are an authorized Nakaya dealer.
