    Beautiful! Whats the color of the 4th Piccalo over? Blueish string roll wow.

  • leighpod

    It’s black! I expect it’s just a trick of the light.

    The Nakaya craftsmen make such nice candy. πŸ˜€

  • Bruno Taut

    Nakaya guys LOVE you deeply.

    They’re all amazing! My personal favorites are the Jidai Nuri Bamboo, the titanium Piccolo, the Housuge shu, and the black hairline Long Piccolo with the snake roll-stopper :)

    Are they resting on a pen wrap? The pattern is beautiful!

    Great Collection!! I’m dreaming with one (unique) pen and you have fiftteen already?!?!

    Really amazing! Congratulations for fine taste!

  • Jon Buller

    It might be time to try a vintage Pelikan.

  • leighpod

    Hi Josh! The pen wrap is Nakaya’s own wrap. :)

    What can I say? Fangirl. πŸ˜€

    Hi Marco! I’ve been collecting them since 2007 and my turnover is slooow.

  • leighpod

    I sold mine, it had a 2B oblique that was pretty sharp. :) I used to have several, now I just have the new M800 tortoiseshell.

  • Azizah Asgarali

    Wow…just got my first Nakaya and reach for it often now. I can only imagine the joy of this many. Nice collection and thanks for the share.

    I love your collection. I am looking to dive into the Urushi end of the pool for my first time. I see you have both clipped and clipless pens, which ones do you prefer more for your Urushi pens? I am looking to use mine as an EDC.
