Nakaya Piccolo Long Writer Toki-Tamenuri Fountain Pen with Pinkgold Sea Turtle Stopper utilizes the compact shape of the Piccolo model to show off the rich, red-pinkish finish.
The fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with solid gold 14k nib.
This Nakaya fountain pen is made of hand-turned ebonite hard rubber that is meticulously coated with Urushi, a material made from the sap of a Japanese lacquer tree.
The process of collecting the Urushi and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes a minimum of three months or more to complete.
As with all tamenuri pens, the color of the will shift with time and use, eventually giving way to lighter green hues.
Because this is a handmade writing instrument, colors will vary slightly from pen to pen - no two will ever be exactly alike.
