Nakaya Portable Cigar Metal Thread Shu Polished

If you have always enjoyed Nakaya's ebonite and urushi fountain pens, but would prefer a writing instrument with a bit more heft than these provide, the new Metal Thread in Shu Polished may be the pen for you.

With its smooth, rounded shape and rich red finish, this fountain pen radiates a vibrant beauty. It's an excellent choice for those who want something a bit edgier than traditional black and gold, yet still neutral enough to carry as an everday writer.

This Nakaya fountain pen is made of hard rubber or ebonite that is meticulously coated with urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the urushi and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes three months to complete. Because these pens are all hand painted and are original works of art, the color will vary and no two will be exactly the same.

Note the metal threading at the front of the barrel - this, and the $100 reduction in the price, is the only difference between these Metal Thread pens and the traditional all-ebonite versions of these pens.

 The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Shu Polished fountain pen is available standard with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.
