Nakaya Piccolo Cigar pens are available in a range of colors. Hand turned from solid hard rubber rod stock, they are then lacquered with multiple layers of natural resins.

The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Midori fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.

The name Piccolo comes from the smallest of the woodwind instruments, and true to form the Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Midori fountain pen is one of the shortest Nakaya pens. Coated in many layers of Urushi resin, this writing instrument is enrobed in a rich, lush dark green finish.

This simple elegant shape, with its turned tapered pyramidal cap and smooth transition between the cap and barrel, is an exercise in spare design. Traditionally, Japanese people have admired pines or evergreens as the symbol of the vitality of plants as well as immortality. Over time the Urushi lacquer will become even more vibrant and bright, though it is initially quite deep in color.

The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. Nakaya pens can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
This is a more compact fountain pen than the Naka-ai or Neo Standard, yet will fit comfortably in most hands without posting the cap. Light reflects and refracts off of the surface of the softly coned end caps.
14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
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.
