The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Milky Way, known in Japanese as the Amanogawa, utilizes raden shell in a gradation pattern to create its celestial appearance. Each pen is handcrafted in natural ebonite, urushi lacquer, and abalone shell in a process requiring six months or more.

As with any pen you purchase from us, the Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Milky Way qualifies for our complimentary nib tuning services, which optimize the pen's performance for the pressure and ink flow preferences you provide while ordering. Nakaya's 14k solid gold nibs also provide an excellent starting point for many of our exclusive nib customizations, including the well-known Spencerian modification.

The use of raden abalone shell in Japanese decorative art has a history going back to the 7th century A.D. Numerous specialized techniques were developed for its usage in lacquer ware, and the Piccolo Cigar Milky Way is a direct descendant of this centuries-old application of Maki-e technique.

Nakaya pens ship in a softwood presentation box decorated with kanji-style calligraphy. A fabric pen kimono, starter box of cartridges, and complimentary ink converter for the use of bottled ink are also included. The tasteful and elegant presentation materials make Nakaya pens an excellent gift item.
