This is the smooth and slender Nakaya Portable. These pens are hand turned from solid rod stock, then lacquered with multiple layers of natural resins.

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 Nakaya Portable Cigar in Kuro-roiro fountain pen is available with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.

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

If simplicity is the highest form of elegance, this is it. As unadorned as the Nakaya Portable Cigar Kuro-roiro fountain pen is, it achieves greatness by virtue of its materials, surface, and color.

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 pen its deep lustrous sheen. The process of collecting the Urushi and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes three months to complete.

The Portable Cigar in Kuro-roiro is a full-sized pen that will fit comfortably in most hands. The glossy black lacquer radiates against the light.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter and can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.

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.

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.
