Each Nakaya Maki-e pen is hand-finished by skilled artisans in the town of Wajima on the west coast of Japan. Wajima has been a center for Maki-e work and urushi lacquerware production going back for centuries.

Nakaya pens use a convenient cartridge-converter filling system - each pen can use Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges, and can also use any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with a reusable ink converter, provided by us free of charge with your order.

Each Nakaya pen ships in a special softwood presentation box which includes a cloth pen kimono and starter pack of ink cartridges along with the converter. We are the sole authorized Nakaya dealer in the English speaking world.
