    Screw type cap with no band, cap, barrel and section are made of ebonite lacquerd with Wajima urushi. This model is portable size and is supposed to be used without posting the cap when writing. As ebonite is a very light material it is possible to make the barrel thicker and longer. Therefore the balance point can be set easier to provide comfortable writing for everyone. "Tame" means "pool" and "nuri" refers to the lacquer coating process. You can actually see through the layers of clear urushi lacquer as if you were looking into a pool. Wajima artists use "shu urushi" (red color) for the base urushi on the barrel, and "shu-ai-urushi" (semi-transparent brown color ) for the finish coats. The black color is mixed in shu-ai-urushi for Kurotame-nuri. When the process is finished, you can still see the base surface of red urushi. After this coating process, craftsmen polish the surface over and over by hand for months in order to attain greater transparency, allowing you to clearly see the underlying red usurshi surface. (Caution) As you know, the screw of Nakaya cap has four entrance in order to close a cap promptly. On the other hand, Nakaya designs 10 aspects of a cap and a barrel of theDecapod model are flat when you close a cap. You can make the same aspect by only one enterance of screw. (For sealing the nib, this is no problems by using all of these four entrance of the screw. )
