The Nakaya Dorsal Fin Version 1 in layered Midori-tamenuri is hand-finished in natural urushi lacquer over an ebonite body - the fin on the cap is created by applying multiple layers of urushi lacquer over a period of months. Each pen is equipped with your choice of 14k solid gold nib.

Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts pressure and ink flow to your personal preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character and distinctiveness of your writing on the page. We are an authorized Nakaya dealer.

The Dorsal Fin is one of the most time-intensive models produced by Nakaya - the finish with distinctive fin shape on each pen can require up to a year to be produced by skilled artisans in the traditional craft center of Wajima on the west coast of Japan. The pen utilizes Nakaya's convenient cartridge-converter system - it can fill with any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the converter, provided by us free of charge with your order, and can also utilize Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges.

Each is provided with a special paulownia softwood presentation decorated with kanji-style script. A fabric pen kimono and starter pack of ink cartridges are included along with the converter.
