For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Japanese Nakaya Decapod Writer Aka-tamenuri Fountain Pen with 14K Gold Music Nib. This Nakaya Decapod Fountain Pen is new, never inked, comes with original wooden box, pen sleeve, ink cartridges, and ink converter. I consider this Nakaya in Mint, New Old Stock Condition.

This Nakaya is made of ebonite and has ten facets of smooth reddish urushi finish from cap to barrel. This pen from Nakaya has a hand-applied urushi application that gives the cap and barrel depth. The color is known as "Aka-tamenuri" which has red and black hues incorporated into the cap and barrel.

The "Writer" model comes with a Gold Plated Clip that displays no wear and shows off the streamlined shape of the fountain pen with its crisp, sleek facets, which follow from end to end in a long smooth curve. This Nakaya Fountain Pen is in Mint Condition with no chips, cracks, or damage. The cap is threaded and secures to the barrel tightly. This Nakaya Decapod Writer Fountain Pen measures 5 7/8" capped and 6 3/4" posted.

The Nakaya Decapod Writer comes with an upgraded 14K/585 Music Nib. The point measures at 1.20mm, or a Double Broad, when measured with digital calipers. I have not written with the nib as I wanted to keep it this Nakaya in Mint, Never Inked, Condition.

The filling system is via an Ink Converter. I tested it with water and works as it was designed to.

The Nakaya comes with the original softwood box with Japanese script on the cover and outer rice paper box. Internally, we have ink cartridges and the kimono fabric pen sleeve.

This Nakaya Fountain Pen is individually handmade and takes roughly 3 to 6 months or longer to get one of these completed. This one is considered in Mint Condition, Never Inked. It is ready to write or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
