This Nakaya Piccolo Writer Kurotamenuri fountain pen is made entirely of ebonite and is lacquered with a Wajima Urushi using the Tame-nuri technique. This model is designed to be used without the cap when writing. As ebonite is a very lightweight material, it is possible to make the barrel thicker and longer. As a result, it is easier to set the point of equilibrium to provide a comfortable writing experience for everyone.
Nakaya is one of Japan's oldest and most important producers of writing instruments. The sober designs give Nakaya fountain pens their universal appeal. The wonderful lacquering and Maki-e techniques make them real works of art. Nakaya fountain pens are a must for any collection.
