Hidetoshi Nakayama is a Japanese knife maker and artist. He is renowned for his detail skills and old world craftsmanship. His bolt action pens are a perfect example of an artist making a ubiquitous item into a functional work of art. Each of these pens are crafted by hand by Hidetoshi and therefore no two are exactly the same. This particular pen is satin/polished steel set off by a beautifully hand carved piece of wood. Don't ask us what kind of wood as a bit was lost in the translation from Hidetoshi and we have no idea! The pen also features a hidden knife blade when the pen "cap" is unscrewed which allows you to always have a small but handy blade at the ready. The blade features a slim and narrow, hand flat ground drop point profile, with brushed satin flats and a polished spine. The pen is easily refilled by simply unscrewing the tip and replacing the cartridge.
