Nakaya's Portable Writer in Matte Black is hand-crafted from ebonite hard rubber and then sent to the Wajima region in western Japan for finishing with a thin layer of clear urushi lacquer. With its even surface and classic shape, this cartridge-converter fountain pen is both a tactile and visual delight. The non-reflective finish lends an understated authority to this practical everyday writer.

The Portable Writer in Matte Black is a full-sized pen that will fit comfortably in most hands. The matte surface extends to the slightly tapered section, making for a unique writing experience.

The plated clip and matching nib pictured here complement the softness of the matte finish. 
Nakaya pens can be filled from bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter and can also use Platinum brand top quality ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

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. 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.
