The Nakaya Heki-tamenuri Cigar Piccolo fountain pen is made of ebonite and lacquered with a Wajima Urushi. Writing with this slightly shorter fountain pen is as comfortable as with a normal length pen.

Tame-Nuri: "Tame" means "pool," and "Nuri" refers to the lacquer coating process. You can see through the layers of clear Urushi lacquer to the underlying red Urushi base as if you were looking into a pool. Once the coating process is completed, the surface is polished over and over by hand to obtain greater transparency. The entire process can take several months. When the polishing process is complete, you see the colored Urushi background even more clearly. The result is quite impressive. Over time, the lacquer layers will lighten due to exposure to daylight and become even more pronounced. The layers of varnish and the color will then stabilize.

Important note: Urushi doesn't like direct sunlight, so keep your pens with their precious Urushi lacquer in a protected environment. A pen pouch, pen case, or closed drawer is sufficient.
