The Nakaya Portable Cigar in Matte Black is available with your choice of 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.

Nakaya's Portable Cigar in Matte Black is hand-crafted from ebonite hard rubber and then sent to the Wajima region in western Japan for finishing with a thin layer of clear Urushi lacquer. With its smooth surface and classic shape, this cartridge-converter fountain pen is both a tactile and visual delight. The non-reflective finish lends an understated authority to this practical everyday writer.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter and can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

The Portable Cigar in Matte Black is a full-sized pen that will fit comfortably in most hands. Its matte surface extends to the slightly tapered section, making for a unique writing experience.


The smooth, slender Portable Cigar shape is an excellent showcase for the unique matte black finish.


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

Though the full range of Nakaya nibs is made available, the ruthenium-plated nib complements the sleek matte black finish.

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.

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.
