The smooth Nakaya Portable Cigar is unencumbered by a clip, so the shape and color become very important. These pens are hand turned from solid ebonite rod stock, then lacquered with multiple layers.

If simplicity is the highest form of elegance, this is it. As unadorned as this pen is, it achieves greatness by virtue of its materials, surface and color. Shown here is the Portable size Cigar (No Clip) in Aka-tamenuri (Reddish-Red).

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 sheen and subtle color shift.
This Nakaya fountain pen is made of hard rubber or ebonite that is meticulously coated with many layers of urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the urushi and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes more than three months to complete. We recommend pre-ordering so that you can reserve your place in the queue.

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 and broad tip can be customized by us into cursive italic, stub or oblique points.
