Type Fountain pen

Product Name Equilibrium - red demonstrator model. The Equilibrium is a model that Nakaya developed in order for the user to change the balance of the fountain pen while writing. The grooves that you see in the barrel are actually a spiral thread, and the pen includes 5 weight rings (approx. 1 gram each). With the included tool, you insert a weight ring and turn the stick to move the ring or rings into a place that is balanced for your hand position. The paperwork includes instructions for this process.

Manufacturer and Year  Nakaya, Japan -- 2005

Length  6-1/8"

Filling System  Nakaya/Platinum cartridge or converter fill. A converter is installed in the pen. There is also a box of Platinum blue-black cartridges, and an adapter for using international cartridges.

Color  Red demonstrator with gold trim. 

Nib  ELASTIC MUSIC 14k nib writes very smoothly. Elastic here refers to the shoulder cutouts, and are intended to give the nib some additional flexibility or springiness. This pen will put down a really juicy line!

Condition  New in Box condition. Our inspection of this pen showed no signs that it was ever inked. No cracks, chips, scratches, or personalization. Ships with original Nakaya Box, pen sleeve, Maki-e convertor, paperwork, and a box of blue-black ink cartridges. 

Nakaya is the luxury line of Platinum and their cartridges and converters are interchangeable.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
