The Nakaya Portable Cigar in Shobu is available 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.

Nakaya pens achieve greatness by virtue of their streamlined design, excellent materials, flawless surface and saturated colors, and Nakaya's Portable Cigar Shobu fountain pen is no exception. Rich, deep Urushi lacquer and a smooth slender shape makes this writing instrument a unique and elegant choice.

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.

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 Shobu is a full-sized pen that will fit comfortably in most hands.


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 pictured here complements the deep purple 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.
