    Price: US$1,000

    Price: US$1,000
    Some people asked us if we would make something different using the popular Negoro style finish, so we decided to do just that.We reversed the traditional color scheme to make the red cloth easier to see from the split.The black Urushi part doesn’t have a Ro-iro finish but takes on a slightly used look by suppressing the sheen slightly.Just like other Negoro style “Nuno-kise Hon Kataji” version pens, the shape and size of the peeling part are never the same. Due to the nature of the finishing, there will be differences each time.(One place straddling the cap and body, two places long and short on the body, 1 or 2 places on the grip)The base model is cigar type in piccolo size.

  • Kago-amime(Basket mesh)・Arai-shu [no.22024]
    Price: US$1,500

    Price: US$1,500
    There is an old fountain pen called “Tou-amime” with rattan mesh. It was produced around 1924 by Nakaya’s parent company Platinum Pen Co.Ltd. It is designed by weaving the rattan tubes in a basket pattern and laid it over the cap and body. We have always hoped to reproduce such an intricate piece of work. We have built a specific theme and made numbers of test production to make the pattern in triaxial weaving using shaved bamboo instead of rattan. As a result, we could make a fountain pen with a similar image to the original one. The bamboo weave at both ends are black, and under the weave is painted with the color urushi. Color: ①Arai-shu ②Bright green ③Indigo Blue * Triaxial weave It is also called as hexagonal weave from the pattern of the hexagonal mesh, and also known as basket weaving, the most popular method of a bamboo weaving. It is a method of weaving in hexagonal shape by crossing six bamboo strips in vertical, horizontal and diagonal directions. It has been used as a method to make a bamboo basket more resistant to the weight by adding the diagonal strips. Reference: “Types of bamboo weaving” (From Torafudake specialty store, 竹虎Taketora website) Attention : This store is not the factory of this products. The total length with a cap is approximately 130mm. Maximum diameter of the cap is approximately 16mm, almost the same size to piccolo size. *Only this model of “Kago-amime (Basket mesh)” is available. This item is manufactured 10-15 pens per order and color. The delivery time could delay depending on the stock.

  • Phernambuco [no.22030]
    Price: US$1,100

    Price: US$1,100
    We had an opportunity of using a rare material known as brazilwood, which is the best material used for making bows for string instruments.
    It originates from Brazil, and due to the excessive deforestation of brazilwood, they are currently protected under the Washington Convention (CITES).
    (our products are made using off-specs materials for bows).

    The wooden part is buff polished in order to maximize the natural beauty of the wooden texture.
    Please be careful with the adhesion of ink, since no coating is applied on the surface of the pen.
    (The base is made of ebonite with black urushi lacquer.)
    Total length: 130 mm, Max diameter: 17mm

    One of the characteristics of the material is the depth of diversity colors (as you can see from the picture, there are differences in colors. Some of them have a deeper color).
    The products colors differ depending on the original color of the woods, thus, we cannot accept request of colors.

    Please also note that it was originally used for dyeing other materials, therefore, color staining can be caused by such things as sweat from the palm of the hand.

  • Nishijin Carbon・Sugiaya(Herringbone) [no.22033]
    Price: US$1,150

    Price: US$1,150
    Although the pen barrels are known to have been made of Carbon Fiber before, mostly the plain weave was applied. We, Nakaya, have produced traditional Sugiayagata design by using an Ayaori diagonal weave. A lone woven thread is thin and can be used to create a detailed design, but requires an enormous skill to work with.
    Sugiayagata is a pattern originated from the leaves of Japanese cryptomeria, which it resembles in form, and is called a Herringbone weave in the West. It seems to have a more modern and familiar touch than the fabric patterns that were popular in ancient times.

  • Nishijin Carbon・Saya [no.22034]
    Price: US$1,150

    Price: US$1,150
    Although the pen barrels are known to have been made of Carbon Fiber before, mostly the plain weave was applied. We, Nakaya, have produced traditional Sayagata design by using an Ayaori diagonal weave. A lone woven thread is thin and can be used to create a detailed design, but requires an enormous skill to work with.
    Sayagata is a repeated pattern by gradually extending fylfots and connecting them in rhomboids.
    From Momoyama period to the early years of Edo the Kumiori weaving method (the method of deploying different patterns on the same piece of fabric) was imported from China and used to create a pattern of silk Sayaori, and afterwards was called “Sayagata” in Japan.
    Thus, due to the longevity of the pattern, it didn’t cease to exist, but survived symbolizing prosperity and long life of a family. The fylfot itself in Stone Age India represented the Sun spreading its rays all around, and was considered a pattern that brings luck in Hinduism and Buddhism.
