As you see below, we made a twist axis based on the decapod model. It is a very difficult process to make only decapod axis, we twisted the barrel as well. Further more,it is almost impossible job to polish up each plane to make smoothness after doing Tame-nuri finish by twisting hands. Making a barrel, twisted polishing process are very difficult work ,so that a concentration of all difficult techniques took over one year and at last it became possible to show to everybody. "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. "Heki" is the color between blue and green. It is one of the Japanese traditional colors. "Tamenuri" means the technique which is the same one as Wajima artists use to make "Kuro-tamenuri " (blackish red -tamenuri-).(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. ) "Heki-tame" lacquer ware is very popular for Nakaya customers,but it is so hard to express this color when produced.
This shape of barrel has 10 angles, so that we can see this light color.
