The Nakaya Dorsal Fin Version 2 in Midori-tamenuri is hand-finished in natural urushi lacquer over an ebonite body - the fins on the cap and barrel are 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.

These pens are in very high demand and are rarely available as in-stock items - we strongly recommend pre-ordering to reserve the next available pen for you. If the pen is in stock and available for immediate purchase, quantities are limited to one per customer. 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 utilizies 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.

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.

Each pen 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.
