Yes, a departure from ebonite and urushi--but my lord I am smitten!

Yup, saw this on twitter yesterday. It's BEAUTIFUL...

And rather far out of my price range. :)

Need a pen repaired or a nib re-ground? I'd love to help you out.

Equally grateful that I don't care for metal pens... It is beautiful though.

Nice to look at but for me too expensive, heavy and I don't care for all metal pens. Boy it's almost the weight of 3 Piccolo Writers. Still it's a good looking pen! :unsure:

hmmm, is it an iron butterfly?

Seems to me a contradiction. Urushii made by hand. Metal made by machine.

Not to disparage anyone who likes it.

WHOA. That is a beautiful pen. Ruthenium seems to be the new rhodium/gold?
I have got myself one 1911 with ruthenium section. This must be heavy, then?!

If it was the price of a regular piccolo, I would order one immediately. At twice the price, no way! I'd rather have two regular ones...

Which reminds me, I need to order a decopod ;)

This is not what you buy a Nakaya for, is it? They must have been hard pressed to come up with something new.

I think of Nakaya and I think Urushi. That's why I buy Nakaya.

It's certainly not what I would buy a Nakaya for. No clue why they took this path. Not to my taste.

Love what Nakaya does now--but am happy to see that they are pursuing different paths. i'm sure they will never abandon the core of their activities--but i applaud their efforts here. hopefully this will be available without the clip as well.....

A lot of these pens were originally commissioned by clients and Nakaya put them up for order.


The Neo Standard started as a request by a client for a pen like the desk pen but one that can be easily carried.

This 'White Tiger' (Byakko) pen was one that I commissioned as another example.

I already have 3 titanium pens and love the material. The Nakaya is a gorgeous pen. Titanium pens are expensive so this is just a matter of paying double the price of the Piccolo or not. I am not too sure about it yet :)

An expensive departure from the understated & beautiful urushi Piccolos that are available.
Looks more like an Italian creation.
I`d rather get two different Piccolos at that price
Just my 0.02 CAD.

The White Tiger is something quite different from this titanium pen. Not that I would buy it, but it fits much better in my perception of a Nakaya.
