    Default Nakaya 20th Anniversary Pen

    Squeee!!! Just got the notification in my email.

    https://www.nibs.com/pens/nakaya/nak...eid=6769823a40

    Also comes in Aka-tamenuri.

    As ethernautrix chants--- "Nakaya---Nakaya!!"
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    I love the ornamental pattern in silver on top of the cap. And the flat-top design.

    But the Kuro-roiro finish is rather underwhelming. You'd think for the 20th anniversary version they will go all out on their best lacquer arts.

    Would love to see the Aka-Tamenuri version.

    I rarely see a Nakaya that I don't love and want to buy. But I just did.

    Cool Re: Nakaya 20th Anniversary Pen

    I think the design would be greatly improved by the removal of the cap finial.
