Rich matte Unpolished Shu (also referred to as Shu-nurippanashi) has long been one of the most popular of Nakaya's solid color finishes, and the Nakaya Portable Cigar is a classic model to showcase the brick red color.

The Nakaya Portable Cigar Shu Unpolished fountain pen is available 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.

Without a clip the unique finish saturates the entire length of the cap and barrel.

As with all Nakaya Urushi pens, each Portable Cigar in Unpolished Shu is hand-turned from ebonite hard rubber and then sent for finishing to Wajima on the west coast of Japan, the traditional center for Urushi lacquer work. Instead of receiving a glossy coat, however, this writing instrument remains matte.

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.

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.

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.
