Nakaya's Long Cigar in Heki-tamenuri is a classic writing instrument, and now this same understated beauty can be ordered in the larger 17mm diameter size. The standard size Long pen has a diameter of 15mm, while this version adds an additional 2mm. Though this may seem like a small difference, the extra diameter is surprisingly significant in adding greater heft and dimension to this pen.

The Nakaya 17mm Long Cigar Heki-tamenuri fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with your choice of solid gold 14k nib.

As always, this Nakaya pen body is made from hand-turned ebonite hard rubber which is then layered with Urushi lacquer in the Wajima region of Japan. Ebonite hard rubber is a strong and durable material - vintage fountain pens using this material have lasted for a hundred years and more. The vivid green under-color will become more apparent as the outer layers mature with use over time, adding depth to the earthy Heki-tamenuri finish. The extensive surface area of this 17mm Long Cigar pen provides an excellent showcase for the nuanced color.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. They can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges.
Nakaya 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flexibility.
Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, a starter box of Platinum ink cartridges, and a fabric pen ""kimono"" are all included with this pen, giving this pen a lovely presentation. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.

Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted.

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.
