Nine Dragons is not just a figure of speech - they are there on every inch of the surface of this extraordinary Long Cigar fountain pen. As Nakaya was established in the year 2000, also a Dragon year, the company's artists and craftspeople feel a special affinity for these Dragon-themed pens.

The year 2012 on the Western calendar was also Jin-shin, the 29th year of the 60th sixty year cycle in the Chinese traditional calendar. In honor of this event, Nakaya created the Nine Dragons Fountain Pen, produced in a special high viscosity black roiro Urushi finish.

Maki-e, literally ""sprinkled powder,"" is a general term for the process by which figurative or abstract designs are created by sprinkling pigment or metallic powder onto the surface of Urushi lacquer while it is still wet. There are many varieties of Maki-e, such as Tame-sukashi, Raden, and Chinkin.

The design motif on this pen is inspired by the work of the 13th century Chinese artist Jinyo.

The Nakaya Long Cigar Nine Dragons is available as a special order item and is provided 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.
Nakaya pens ship in a solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script and lined with decorative rice paper. A fabric pen ""kimono"" and starter box of Platinum brand cartridges are also included, making this pen a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.
