I have a little lunch time left and wanted to share a few photos of my new Nakaya with the goldfish roll stopper. The stopper is polished sterling silver and I love the look on the aka-temenuri finish. I was, however, surprised to see the treads were lacquered and not black metal as I'd seen on almost all other Neo Standards - a welcome surprise!

 

The nib is a BB ground to left oblique cursive italic by John Mottishaw's team.

 

Hope you have a great day!

The lacquered threads are lovely. I find the newer metal ones a bit ugly, spoiling the look of the pens.

This is a brand new pen. Maybe they are doing away with metal threads on this model?

I've asked CFP in the past why some aka pens have some lacquered threads and some don't, they've said it's up to the artist. 

 

Also, gorgeous pen! I love the silver goldfish with the red and dual tone nib!

I always thought the steel threads were brought in as a lower cost option alternative on some models instead of lacquered ebonite threads.

That is correct.  But as far as I know the Aka finish is different than most in that originally the ebonite threads were left black when the rest of the pen was finished with the Aka Tamenuri.  Recently the Aka pens I have seen have the ebonite threads also lacquered with  Aka

Perhaps it is artist dependant, but also model dependant.  The reason I bought my heki-tamenuri as a Portable was that it was the one model where there primary colour came through the threads, as opposed to them being the top colour (not sure I explained that particularly well)

According to Kato-san at Nakaya, only the non-decapod lines come with the option of the metal threads to save $100. This option is customer dependent rather than an artistic call. At least this was her response when I placed my order for a midori tamenuri decapod Cigar pen.

No, that isn't possible. A pen with a roll stopper has to be made that way by Nakaya--a stopper can't be added later.


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.
