2014

**We introduce our new items.**  14/03/01
[Cherry blossoms by silver powder]
  We have brought cherry blossoms to life with silver powder.
  Previously we had released the same styled but with a bamboo image (“A bamboo by silver powder”).  Upon customer’s request we replaced this image with that of the well loved cherry blossom. Much like the bamboo, cherry blossoms are a traditional and commonly used motif for Japanese people.  Once again we have succeeded in making a modern looking design while embracing tradition.

[A folding screen of flowers II]
  In order to meet demands, we have designed a folding screen of flowers with a different and equally impressive background color.  We laid a white urushi on the gold background allowing to utilize a softer image thus enhancing the floral arrangement aiding it to stand out even more.

[The Fujin and the Raijin III]
  The Fujin and the Raijin have been made a stunning reality by using “Tame-sukashi” techniques.  We achieved brilliant enhancement with “Tame-sukashi” effects, added a sprinkling of gold powder on the surface of “Shuai-urushi”, and coated with ”Tame-sukashi” again using “Shuai-urushi”.

**We introduce our new 6 items. We hope you'll enjoy new "UNIQUE" pens!! Do you like it??**  14/03/29
[Kago-amime(Basket mesh)]
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.

・Kago-amime(Basket mesh)・Arai-shu
・Kago-amime(Basket mesh)・Bright green
・Kago-amime(Basket mesh)・Indigo Blue

[Forest of Owl]
This is the third model of Byakudan-Nuri with Yako-makie followed by “Akitsu-shima” and “Cat Paradise”.
An Owl, the wisest of the forest creators, is strewn along the body of the pen.

・Forest of Owl・Shu-ai
・Forest of Owl・Midori

[Ryukyu Tsuikin A Flying Dragon 2(red color base)]
It is a popular three-dimensional design of a dragon using Ryukyu Tsuikin.
By changing the base color from black to red, it brings to life the impressions and grand images of Ryuku.

**We introduce our new 4 items. This is our first design to add an impression on our decapod model.**  14/04/27

[Sumiko Black dragon]
On the decapod twist, we created a dragon using heaping up technique of Sumiko.
The dragon ball and the fire flame are polished with a black Urushi and have been added as an accent.

[Bird in chaos]
One of Nakaya’s characteristics of Makie is to get out of the common idea of Makie at times.
This embodies exactly that, a product made by using high skilled techniques while choosing an eccentric motif.

[The Fujin and the Raijin IV (A wind god and the thunder god IV)]
This is the forth version of “The Fujin and the Raijin” series.
One of the primary colors is Sabi-Nando (type of blue-green), a well-known and traditional Japanese color. We also incorporated with it a Nashiji platinum powder to form a stunning base.

[Ascending dragon 3]
This is the third version of the popular “Ascending dragon” series of Tame-sukashi.
We have unveiled a dragon that reflects more of the Japanese taste compared to the previous two versions (the first version had been based on an ancient Chinese painting).


**Nakaya held event at morastylos in Paris in May.**  14/08/14
Morastylosis the authorized dealer of Nakaya Fountain pen company in France and it was first time for us to hold an event in Paris.

We really appreciate the work ethics of the morastylos and we believe that their support throughout made the event ended successfully.
Mr. Andre Mora is the 2nd generation of the shop's founder and with his great knowledge about the pen, he supports customers' preference and chooses what's best for them.
On the other handMs.Christine Regnault explained the background on how to make Nakaya urushi pens in English and in French since some costumers are from different countries.

Fortunately, we were so pleased that a lot of costumers visited which gave us opportunities to show them different variety of pens.
Moreover,we were so happy to see them in person. Some costumers who visited this event were from abroad and spent their holiday in France.

We did absolutely the same style of event like what we do in Japan.
We also exhibited a lot of standard models and special edition.
Our nib master did different kinds of adjustments according to customers request and needs. Fortunately, it seemed that
customers were really enjoying and showed interest in his work while watching what he's doing.
The outcome of this event was publicized in a pen magazine named "Stylographe" and was published on June 2014 in France.

”morastylos” is a very attractive shop. If you have time, please visit them. We are certain that they will give you great service and satisfaction.
To all the customers who visited this event, we really appreciate your prescence. Thanks a lot!!!

**“Dragon” The 2nd version appears! (rolling stopper)**  14/08/14
rolling stopper:【Dragon II】

“Dragon II” is designed in a structure that the dragon embraces a crown just like the Panda rolling stopper model.
It is a vision of mysticism, a dragon looking down on the lower world while coiling its body.

**A new Makie product "Venetian Moon".**  14/08/18
【Venetian Moon】

The Venetian streets are described through the cap and body, and the crescent moon at its zenith was expressed by Raden.
Together with the naive line, it gives a finish like an antique designed pottery.

**A new Chinkin product "Gungyo-zu". It is Close to the limit of the Chinkin technique.**  14/11/08
[Gungyo-zu]
At first glance, it looks like it is drawn by Makie, but this is a detailed painting of Chinkin.
We could say this is close to the limit of the Chinkin technique.

[Izumi No Kami Kanesada]
Toshizo Hijikata, the vice-commander of Shinsen-Gumi is widely loved not only by those who appreciate Japanese history but others who enjoy a bit of nostalgia.
We made this fountain pen to resemble the sheath for Hijikata’s sword “Izumi No Kami Kanesada” upon customers’ request.

[Briar Marquetry wood patch (wooden inlaid craft)]
We have integrated a little bit of the barrel’s of the briar model, which is a variation of the “Negoro style.”
