Maki-e, literally ""sprinkled powder,"" is a general term for the process by which figurative or abstract designs are created by sprinkling pigment or metallic powder onto the surface of Urushi lacquer while it is still wet. There are many varieties of Maki-e, such as Tame-sukashi, Raden, and Chinkin.

The Nakaya Portable Cigar White Roses Maki-e fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes 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.

With elegant white roses and vines covering a rich red finish, the Nakaya Portable Cigar White Roses Maki-e fountain pen is a stunning work of art. The smooth, slender Portable Cigar is an excellent showcase for the detailed Maki-e.

After drawing the motif using urushi lacquer, the craftsman rubs colored urushi onto the motif as it begins to set. Then the colored urushi is carefully polished and rubbed with Shu-ai urushi over the pen once more, creating a textured surface. Lastly, the craftsman creates vines by applying light colored urushi with a brush. All of this is then carefully and meticulously polished as the final step. The end result is Maki-e of the highest order, and a writing instrument that appears to be covered in roses from tip to tail.

Not only is the Portable Cigar White Roses aesthetically beautiful, but it is also a high-quality pen. This is the perfect fountain pen for those looking for a unique full-sized writing instrument.
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.
