Nakaya's 17mm Portable Cigar Aka-tamenuri fountain pen is a model of simple elegance. The standard size Portable pen has a diameter of 15mm; the additional 2mm is surprisingly significant in adding additional heft and dimension to this pen. The vivid red under-color will become more apparent as the outer layers mature with use over time.

The Nakaya 17mm Portable Cigar Aka-tamenuri fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with the any of the complete range of Nakaya's solid gold 14k nibs.

This Nakaya over-size fountain pen 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.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. They can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges.

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, making it a lovely presentation item. 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.
