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. The Piccolo Writer (With Clip) fountain pen in Ishime Kanshitsu (Stone Finish) takes this elegance one step further, maintaining the shape while enhancing the surface appealing to the fingers as well as the eye.

This Nakaya fountain pen is made of a Stone Finish 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.

The craftsman sows Urushi powder onto the body, which makes a lot of grains on the surface due to surface density. After settled, he varnishes the body with lacquer several times to make the body harden. He sharpens these grains with charcoal and finishes with a lacquer. It is truly an artistic craftsmanship to decorate a stone-like appearance on a pen true to its name ('Ishi"" means a stone in Japanese).

The Urushi tradition is historic and profound in Japan, where lacquer ware has adorned utilitarian objects for centuries. This technique, though painstaking, gives this fountain pens its deep lustrous matte surface.

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 larger tips can be customized into architect's, cursive italic, stub or oblique points.
