Black Kuro-roiro urushi lacquer may be the most classic color on this emblematic Portable model Writer (with clip) Nakaya fountain pen. This is simplicity and elegance personified.

Beautifully proportioned and eminently practical, this black pen exudes quiet authority.

If simplicity is the highest form of elegance, this is it. As unadorned as the Nakaya Portable Writer Kuro-roiro fountain pen is, it achieves greatness by virtue of its materials, surface, and color.

The Urushi tradition is historic and profound in Japan, where lacquer ware has adorned utilitarian objects for centuries. This technique, though painstaking, gives this fountain pen its deep lustrous sheen. The process of collecting the Urushi and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes a minimum of three months to complete. Gold plating on the clip along with the solid 14K gold nib add to the classic appeal of this writer.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter and can also use Platinum brand top quality ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

Note the smooth even luster of the many layers of urushi lacquer.
Decorative rice paper, a simple solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script, and a fabric pen ""kimono"" are all included with this pen, making it 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.
