Nakaya Portable Cigar Autumn Leaves fountain pen
Fall leaves seem to come to life on these beautiful Nakaya Cigar Portable Autumn Leaves. The base color of the pen is Ake-tamenuri and the pen is finished with the two-layer Tame-Sukashi technique, where Urushi lacquer is applied over a painted motif, this technique ensures that a beautiful depth is created in the image. With this pen, autumn leaves curl around the barrel and cap.
The design of the pen is simple and sober, no gold-plated rings and no clip. The fountain pen is slightly longer than usual and intended to be used without a cap on the back. it is also not recommended to place the cap on the back of the container because of damage to the urushi paint.).
Japanese fountain pens almost always write seriously thinner than the European brands. As an indication, a Japanese medium nib corresponds to a fine European one.
We have chosen to keep only the gold-colored 14-karat nibs in stock. Of course, these fountain pens can also be ordered in other finishes at an additional cost; ruthenium, rhodium rose gold plated or bi-color.
Just like the pen, the packaging is simple but neat and stylish. Each pen is packed in a Paulownia wooden gift box, the pen itself comes in a small "kimono fabric" case. The fountain pen comes with a box of Platinum cartridges and a converter.r.
Nakaya fountain pens are made to order, delivery time varies from three to about six months, but the pens are well worth the wait.
We have a small "iron stock" that we will try to maintain. In addition, it is of course possible to order the pen with your specific preference regarding the holder, color urushi and nib from us.
