The Heki-tamenuri usushi layers demonstrate the amazing topology of this Nakaya Decapod TW fountain pen. The light green layers of the under-painting peek through the edges of the urushi lacquer over-painting showing each of the ten flats and edges.

The Decapod has already been perhaps the most distinctive pen style developed by Nakaya, and now this new pen literally gives the model an added twist. This is the Writer (with clip) Decapod TW in brown-green Heki-tamenuri, a beautiful earthy layered color.

Each pen is handcrafted from ebonite hard rubber making this pen a pleasure to hold. Nakaya’s multi-thread barrel allows this pen to be quickly capped and uncapped, but not every thread will properly align the facets in the closed position - it may take more than one try to find a thread that will properly set the alignment.
The ten-sided decapod design is both distinctive and practical - the flat facets reduce the chances of this writing instrument rolling off of a table.

These smooth-writing nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flexibility.

The Nakaya Writer Decapod TW can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. Nakaya pens can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
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.

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.
