This painstaking process requires several months.

The Nakaya Portable Cigar Nuno Kise fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite, Urushi lacquer, silver tin, and fabric. It comes standard with 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.
The pen body is hand-turned from ebonite hard rubber which has been sustainably harvested from the rubber gum tree. Ebonite is the classic material for quality fountain pens - writing instruments created using this material have been in everyday usage for a hundred years or more.
Applications of fabric, silver tin, and lacquer create a unique textural finish. The semi-gloss surface reflects the handmade process with its subtle ridges interspersed with smoother sections. This is truly a writing instrument you need to feel in the hands in order to appreciate the magnitude of its beauty.
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 rounded end cap is not completely smooth and uniform but rather maintains the natural look of the Nuno Kise process.
Nakaya 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
