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.

This is the Nakaya Portable Cigar Shishin Four Gods Dragon fountain pen, realized in smooth Tame-sukashi technique. It is a companion pen to the Shishin Red Bird.

Representative of the dragon which guards the East, the dragon seen here is referred to as the ""Blue"" Dragon, though the colors used to represent it on this pen are Aka and Heki-tamenuri.

The Nakaya Portable Cigar Tame-sukashi Shishin Four Gods Dragon is provided standard 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.
14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
Nakaya pens ship in a solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script and lined with decorative rice paper. A fabric pen ""kimono"" and starter box of Platinum brand cartridges are also included, making this pen 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.
The Nakaya Portable Cigar Tame-sukashi Shishin Four Gods Dragon can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. Nakaya pens can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
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.
