The black Ishime Kanshitsu stone finish Nakaya pen achieves greatness by virtue of its streamlined design, excellent materials and amazing surface. If simplicity is the highest form of elegance, this is it.

This Nakaya fountain pen is made of a Stone Finish urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the urushi (sap) and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes months to complete. The craftsman sows urushi powder onto the wet lacquer body, which places a lot of grains on the surface. After they have hardened, he again varnishes the body with lacquer several times to make the body harden. He sharpens these grains with charcoal and finishes with a lacquer. It is truly an artistic craft to decorate a stone-like appearance on a pen true to its name ('Ishi"" means a stone in Japanese).This Portable Nakaya fountain pen makes an elegant pocket companion.

The Nakaya Portable in Black Ishime Kanshitsu finish can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter. Nakaya pens can also use Platinum brand top quality ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.
