Each flower is hand-painted using acrylic powders, creating unique variety on each pen. The pen body is made from high-quality acrylic resin, rather than Nakaya's traditional ebonite, in order to accommodate this special painting technique. Urushi lacquer on the finish adds shine and captures the silver maki-e sprinkles.

Notice the stunning design details on the barrel. Brightly colored tulips in shades of yellow, orange, and red grow amongst lush green leaves. Between the tulips small blue flowers add a touch of color contrast.Nakaya pens can be filled with 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 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.
