Although the Nakaya Long Cigar Shobu fountain pen has a ceremonial look to it, in hand you sense this is a pen to be used. These pens are hand turned from solid rod stock, then lacquered with multiple layers of natural resin.

No need to post a cap on this pen-- Nakaya were not joking when they named this ""long size."" Capped, the Cigar Long Size Shobu seems even longer than it really is. Shown here is the Long size Cigar (No Clip) fountain pen in Shobu (Purple).
Like all the Nakayas, this pen is a pleasure to hold, and the size and lustrous Urushi give this model a magisterial aura.

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.

Photographs don't do justice to the feeling of surprise-- how light the pen is, how elegant, how ""right"" the pen feels in hand, with its softly rounded, slightly voluptuous design.

The Nakaya nib, imprinted Nakata, the family name of the manufacturer, is made of solid 14K gold. Each of these nibs is suitable for our customization to extra flexible. The medium and broad tip can be customized into cursive italic, stub or oblique points.
