Nakaya Portable Cigar Sumiko Camellia
Maki-e, literally "sprinkled powder," is a general term for the process by which figurative or abstract designs are created by sprinkling pigment or metallic powder onto the surface of Urushi lacquer while it is still wet. There are many varieties of Maki-e, such as Tame-sukashi, Raden, and Chinkin.

The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone. With its bold, raised Camellia flower motif set against a subtly shimmering backdrop, the Nakaya Portable Cigar Sumiko Camellia Flower fountain pen is a striking writing instrument. The style of the flower is based on the Sumi "India Ink" technique.
The Camellia flower is built up using black Urushi lacquer with the Sumi-ko "heaping up" technique as is seen on the Sumi-ko Dragon or the Sumi Cherry Blossoms. This provides a textural element which contrasts with the smooth surface of the rest of the pen.
Inside the petals the pistil is made with the Nashiji (matte finishing) technique and sprinkled with gold powders.
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.
