Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful Nakaya Nakai-ai Araishu Fountain Pen, which comes with its wooden presentation box (including outer), pen kimono and cartridges. The pen has barely been used and is presented in virtually as new condition.
Nakaya require no introduction and if you’ve got this far then likely you’ll be familiar with their wonderful writing instruments. This is the rarer Araishu finish, which has a deep vibrant orange tone to it. The trim is gold-plated.
The pen is hand-turned from solid ebonite rod stock, which then has multiple layers of lacquer applied, before finally being finished with natural urushi resin. The Naka-ai has such a lovely curved shape and really shows off the colour perfectly.
The pen is fitted with a 14k extra broad nib and it’s a cartridge / converter (supplied) pen, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
Condition: Virtually As New
Nib: Extra Broad
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
