Nakaya Piccolo Cigar fountain 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.

With its rose-pink color and compact shape, Nakaya's Piccolo Cigar Toki-iro fountain pen combines a unique finish with a classic form. Originally available only as part of a set of five Naka-ai Writer Limited Edition fountain pens which quickly sold out, we are pleased to announce that the Toki-iro color is now available in the popular Piccolo Cigar model.

"Toki" refers to the Japanese Crested Ibis, a bird once abundant in Japan but now on the verge of extinction. Covered with a veil of pinkish-white feathers, this bird is a Japanese treasure.

This hand-turned ebonite fountain pen fits comfortably in the hand. Though the standard range of Nakaya nibs are made available, a pink gold-plated nib complements the Toki-iro Urushi finish and provides a sleek, monochromatic look.

The Piccolo model has softly coned cap ends. These cap ends provide aesthetic balance to the Piccolo Cigar Toki-iro fountain pen. Light reflects off of the rich Urushi finish on the cap and barrel.

The Piccolo Cigar in Toki-iro can be provided with Nakaya's solid gold 14k nibs in your choice of tipping size.

These smooth-writing nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex. These pens can be filled with bottled ink using the provided converter. They can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available, as are a wide range of other options and accessories.
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.
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.
