Nakaya 17mm Portable Cigar Chinese Pond Turtle
In Tame-Sukashi technique, layers of clear, smooth Urushi lacquer are applied over a painted motif - it is similar to Tame-Nuri technique, in which lacquer is applied over a solid color. The underlying motif in Tame-Sukashi will become more promiment over time as the Urushi lacquer ages and becomes more transparent.

The luminous green Midori-tamenuri used for the motif of the Nakaya Portable Cigar Chinese Pond Turtle fountain pen is unlike anything we have seen before from Nakaya.
Smooth Tame-sukashi technique provides the final layer for this beautiful pen. The underlying motif will become brighter and more prominent as the layers of clear Urushi lacquer mature and become more transparent.
This is the larger 17mm diameter Portable size, which allows Nakaya's Maki-e artists a more expansive canvas for their work. It has a bit more heft than the standard sized Portable model but will still fit comfortably in the hand.
