Maki-e, literally "sprinkled powder," is a general term for the process by which figurative or abstract designs are created by sprinkling pigment or metallic powder onto the surface of Urushi lacquer while it is still wet. There are many varieties of Maki-e, including particular variations such as Tame-sukashi, Raden, and Chinkin.

The Nakaya Portable Cigar Cherry Blossoms by Silver Powder 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 cherry blossom blooms only for a short time each year, yet is striking each time it happens. Pale pink flowers crest the branches for miles, and here Nakaya has depicted the blossom in silver powder for a stunning effect.
Nakaya 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
Nakaya pens ship in a solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script and lined with decorative rice paper. A fabric pen "kimono" and starter box of Platinum brand cartridges are also included, making this pen a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.
