Nakaya Naka-ai Writer Ao-tamenuri Fountain Pen


Out of stock

Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this delightful Nakaya Naka-ai Writer Ao-tamenuri 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 overall wonderful condition.




Nakaya require no introduction and if you’ve got this far then likely you’ll be familiar with their wonderful writing instruments. The Naka-ai was designed by Shinichi Yoshida and John Mottishaw, taking a position between the smaller Piccolo series and the larger desk pen.




The pen is hand-turned from solid ebonite rod stock, which then has multiple layers of ivory-hued lacquer applied, before finally being finished with natural urushi resin. The Ao-tamenuri finish has a blue-green base, which will show through more with age. The trim is ruthenium-plated.




The pen is fitted with a 14k medium ruthenium nib and it’s a cartridge / converter (supplied) pen, so your choice here is bottled ink.




The important details are as follows…



Condition: Wonderful



Box: Nakaya




Nib: Medium




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”.
