The Nakaya Decapod Cigar Heki-tamenuri ST fountain pen seems to break at the edges into a grassy green, lending a subtle yet striking nuance to the finish. As time progresses more of the green under-layers will peek through the brown overcoat, like grass rising from the earth in spring.

This is a shape that can be described by pure geometry except that it is subtly more complex. In the end it is the eye and the hand that this shape most satisfies. The ten sided shape has another function. Because it is not round in cross section it is not likely to roll off a desk.

Each Decapod Cigar is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber, then sent to the Wajima region in western Japan for finishing with urushi lacquer. As with all hand-made pens, colors will vary slightly from pen to pen - no two will ever be exactly alike.

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

The flat surface of the end caps gleam with urushi lacquer finish.

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, 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 and take months to finish. We recommend that you order in advance to hold your place for one.
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.
