With a ceremonial stature and understated elegance, the Nakaya Long Cigar Kuro-roiro fountain pen is a true classic. Black and gold evoke tradition, yet this writing instrument is anything but ordinary.

The Nakaya Long Cigar Kuro-roiro fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer. It comes with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.

The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone.

These pens are hand turned from solid rod stock, then lacquered with multiple layers of deep black natural resin.

This is not a pen you would store in a shirt pocket. Even with its long size, this writing instrument is extremely well-balanced in the hand. The softly rounded shape adds to its style and practicality.

Since there is no clip on this pen, you notice right away the precise action and mating of the threads as you take apart the barrel from the cap. Like all the Nakayas, this pen is a pleasure to hold, and the size and lustrous black Kuro-roiro urushi give this model a magisterial aura.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, and can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
The Nakayas always seem to have little surprises in store for you-- here the nib has a strong curve, yet is engraved with a rather delicate pattern, featuring a charming heart-shaped breather hole. The effect is both modern yet invokes the fin-de-siecle era of pen craft.
Nakaya 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
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 in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer.

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. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
