Nakaya Cigar Decapod Heki-tamenuri fountain pen

€739,67 EUR
The Nakaya Cigar Decapod heki-tamenuri fountain pen is made of ebonite with a beautiful Wajami urishi lacquer. This model is one of the most difficult variants to produce. Holder and cap each have 10 facets, which makes repeated polishing of the flat strips a true art. Ebonite is a light material, so the pen can be made a little longer and thicker without it becoming too heavy. Several transparent urushi layers are applied over the light green base color, which are each time dried and then polished. The more coats applied, the darker the final pen color will be. With this pen this results in a beautiful lacquered pen, whereby the underlying, in this case, light green layers become visible in the sharper transitions. The name refers to this; "Tame" means "pond" and refers to the transparency of the top coat and "nuri" means "layer" which refers to the painting process.

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 not recommended to place the cap on the back of the holder because of damage to the beautiful urushi lacquer).

The nibs are 14 carat gold and can be ordered in different writing widths .
