This is the Nakaya Long size Writer (with clip) fountain pen. It is hand turned from solid hard rubber rod stock, then lacquered with multiple layers of red pigmented urushi resins. The matte finish distinguishes it from the polished shu (red).

The Nakaya Long Writer Unpolished Shu fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer.

The Nakaya Long Writer Unpolished Shu fountain pen takes this protracted writing instrument to a whole new level with its rich matte red finish. An earthy terra cotta color, the Unpolished Shu showcases the streamlined shape of this pen.

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.
The Long Writer Unpolished Shu fountain pen is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber that is meticulously coated with urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the Urushi, refining it and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes many months to complete. Unlike many Nakaya pens with their high-shine lacquer finish, the Unpolished Shu stands out with its soft matte top coat.

The gold-plated clip shown here complements the warm tone of the red matte finish.
Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, and can also use the high quality Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
Nakaya 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Architect's Point, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.

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.
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.
