In Tame-Sukashi technique, layers of clear, smooth Urushi lacquer are applied over a painted motif - it is similar to Tame-Nuri technique, in which lacquer is applied over a solid color. The underlying motif in Tame-Sukashi will become more prominent over time as the Urushi lacquer ages and becomes more transparent.

The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone.

At first glance this pen my appear to be another Portable Cigar in Aka-tamenuri but after close examination the image of a golden dragon can be seen through the deep layers of Urushi. With its intricate detail and long size, the Nakaya Portable Cigar Aka-tamenuri Ascending Dragon fountain pen is a striking writing instrument with presence.
If you prefer the earthy brownish-green tones of Heki-tamenuri, the Nakaya Portable Cigar Ascending Dragon is also available in that finish. 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.

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.
