The Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Shu Unpolished fountain pen is hand turned from solid hard rubber rod stock, then finished in natural urushi lacquer. Each pen is provided with your choice of 14k solid gold nib.

Sensible and elegant packaging have been a hallmark of Nakaya. All Nakaya pens come packaged in handcrafted finery, as painstakingly constructed as the pens they protect. The heavy decorative rice paper, simple solid softwood shipping box and fabric pouch make a lovely presentation for Nakaya Urushi pens.

The matte surface on the Shu (red) fountain pen reveals an entirely different color than the polished version. This one takes on a muted sheen, and is also soft to the touch.

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 three months to complete. This finish reveals a level of craftsmanship and attention that we have only seen in the finest pens.

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, broad and extra broad tip can be customized into a cursive italic, stub or oblique point.

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.
