Similar to Tame-Sukashi and often used in conjunction with it, Yakou Maki-e involves creating a painted motif under layers of clear smooth Urushi lacquer. In Yakou Maki-e, however, the motif itself is painted in black Urushi over a Tame-Nuri base.

Stylized in gold line, this is the Nakaya Portable Cigar in the Aka-tamenuri (reddish red) Wajima urushi. As time goes on, the owl emerges more and more from the layers of the Aka-tamenuri over surface.

Since the motif is expressed under the layer, you cannot see the motif clearly at first. With the Urushi lacquer as the top coating, it allows the golden owl to become clearer as the pen is used over time.
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 tips can be customized by us into cursive italic, stub, or oblique points.

The heavy decorative rice paper, simple solid softwood shipping box, and fabric pen pouch make a lovely presentation for these Nakaya Urushi pens. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.
