Nakaya Nakai-ai Ao-tamenuri Ruthenium Fountain Pen – DIPPED – Medium Nib

SKU 204451653049 Categories ,


Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful Nakaya Nakai-ai Ao-tamenuri Ruthenium Fountain Pen, which comes with its wooden presentation box (including outer), pen kimono and cartridges. The pen was only dipped to test 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. 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 lacquer applied, before finally being finished with natural urushi resin. Ao-tamenuri has a darker outer layer with a glorious blue-green base later, which shows throughs more with age.

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

The important details are as follows… 


Condition: Virtually As New

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”.
