The Nakaya Long Writer Kuro-roiro fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and layers of Urushi lacquer. 


With a ceremonial stature and understated elegance, the Nakaya Long Writer Kuro-roiro fountain pen is a true classic. Black and gold evoke tradition, yet this writing instrument is anything but ordinary. A gold clip adds a practical element to this long writer and breaks up the appearance of solid black.

At a closed length of 6.66", this is not a pen you would store in a shirt pocket unless your pockets are particularly deep. Even with its long size, this writing instrument is extremely well-balanced in the hand. The softly rounded shape adds to its style and comfort.

As with all the Nakayas, this pen is a pleasure to hold, and the size and lustrous black Kuro-roiro urushi give this model a magisterial aura.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, or you can plug in the high quality Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available. 
The clip functions as a built in roll-stopper, preventing the pen from rolling off of a table or other flat surface.

The Nakayas always seem to have little surprises in store for you-- here the nib has a strong curve, yet is engraved with a rather delicate pattern, featuring a charming heart-shaped breather hole.

The effect is both modern yet invokes the fin-de-siecle era of pen craft.

Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, and a fabric pen "kimono" are all included with this pen, making it 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. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
