Remember when Travolta opened the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? Now I know what was inside!

As is my preference I ordered this Nakaya directly from Japan via email. They are always most pleasant and the nib adjustment beyond reproach.

I’ve collected fountain pens for nearly 25 years and this is far from my first urushi fountain pen. It’s not even my first chinkin pen. Nevertheless, I am astonished by this amazing pen. The combination of beauty, bespoke craftsmanship, and writing qualities are unmatched in my collection.

The finish is darker, more subdued, radiant, gorgeous, brighter, and bewitching than I imagined. Confused? It depends on the ambient light, but this pen quietly screams sublimity.

The size, shape, balance, geometry, design, and execution render a pen that simply functions as a superb writing instrument. The medium nib writes what appears to be a boringly unwavering (Japanese) medium line. What you cannot observe is the experience that is one of supreme confidence and superlative feel. It puts down exactly the amount of ink required smoothly without fuss at the exact angle I hold the pen. It’s…natural.

The packaging is standard Nakaya and the one “upgrade” I got was the urushi koi painted converter, which is very cute. The pen shipped with a cartridge in place all ready to write; a bit of a surprise but a pretty confident move. This pen was made for writing. A hand-made piece of high-end art with a purpose.

Here it is compared to the Sailor KOP vermilion urushi. The KOP costs almost double...

Absolutely beautiful - enjoy it in good health.

 

I would caution against the maki-e converters. They are tiny little dainty works of art, but the Platinum converters themselves are prone to failure, so they usually prove a frustratingly short-lived pleasure.

Too many pens; too little writing.

I noticed that as well. All of my Platinum/Nakaya converters have a rough feel to them. Most $6 standard converters feel better.

That's a beautiful pen. I hope to acquire one in blue/white in the near future. That is probably my grail pen.
