If simplicity is the highest form of elegance, this is it. Nakaya pens achieve greatness by virtue of its streamlined design, excellent materials, flawless surface and saturated colors. Shown here is the Neo Standard Writer (with clip) fountain pen in Shu (unpolished red). The unpolished version with its soft luster absorbs as much light as it reflects and begs to be touched.

The response to this design has been highly enthusiastic. One of our customers says, ""This is the best shape that Nakaya has ever made.""

The matte surface on the Shu (red) fountain pen reveals an entirely different color than the polished version. This one takes on a soft sheen as seen in the reflections above. It is also soft to the touch.
On this extreme close-up, one can just see the fine brush strokes of the surface.

This Nakaya fountain pen is made of hard rubber and coated with Urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the Urushi (sap) and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes months to complete.

This finish reveals a level of craftsmanship and attention that we only see in the finest pens. Notice how the red color varies as it rounds the edge of the cap. This pen will only grow more beautiful with wear and time.
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.
