    From the picture it looks to be the Resin version of the pen and not the Ebonite with Urushi.
    Can you please clarify which one is it?

    The picture of the pen is the exact same picture (right down to the lighting, reflections, and shimmers) from the nibs.com website. It's just been resized. As far as I know, if that Nakaya was bought from John Mottishaw then it's the Urushi version. John doesn't sell any resin Nakayas.

    All the Best.

    I am very new to Nakayas (6-7 years only and with limited exposure to diff finishes) but I assure you that I have personally picked a Resin Nakaya from NIBS.com desk at SF pen show.
    It was either at 2016 or 2017 show as i did not attend the 2018 show. It definitely was not 2019 Show else i would have remembered more details.

    I was shocked to see a slightly see thru plastic material and inquired about it. I was told that it was Nakayas version of Precious Resin. I laughed, called it a plastic and gave it back.
    The girl at the table also laughed and saying, they don't like us calling it a plastic
    That pen was a clipless cigar and had similar level of see thru as is seen on some dark Franklin Christophes or in Montblanc Kafka Writer Series. The lighting at SF Pen show is not best and John was sitting in a corner of the hall so i could not capture much details. Just the fact that it was plastic was enough to pass that pen at that show.

    For some reason i was possibly mislead by the light reflections on the join. It looked like the threads were see thru. However it may just be the reflection of light and finish.
    The OP did not mention any details of urushi hence i felt it fair to ask

    I have never seen a plastic Nakaya for sale on nibs.com, either new or in his used pen section. I just learned something new and interesting, vron. Thank-you for telling us about the plastic Nakayas.

    All the Best.
