URUSHI EBONITE

This special edition is handmade in Japan using the ancient Urushi techniques. The pens are made from Nikko Ebonite and lacquered in Urushi layers for several months. Ebonite is a hard rubber obtained by vulcanizing natural rubber from gum trees with sulfur and linseed oil. Urushi is a traditional Japanese lacquering technique using natural wood resin. The pens are lacquered in ‘Kuro Tame-nuri’, which means that there are multiple vermillion layers at the bottom, followed by more translucent black layers on top. The result is a rich glossy black with hints of the vermillion layers at the edges and threads. Each pen takes many months to complete as the Urushi layers take several days to air dry in specific natural conditions.

14K SOLID GOLD NIB

The pen comes equipped with a large (#6) 14K solid gold nib (Fine) made in Germany by Peter Bock. These nibs have been regarded as one of the best performing nibs in the business. Each nib is individually engraved with the Urushi Kanji character and the pen number.

PAULOWNIA WOOD BOX

The pen boxes are handmade in Japan from local Paulownia wood and fire-stamped using a traditional brass iron.

INK CONVERTER, INK CARTRIDGES, EYE-DROPPING

The pen accepts all standard international ink cartridges which are widely available worldwide. We also understand the passion for diverse ink options for fountain pen enthusiasts. For this reason, these pens have been designed for eye-dropping capabilities. The body threads have been calibrated for it. In addition, we incorporated an o-ring seal that prevents any leakage. Silicone grease is needed on the nib threads and section threads for eye-dropping. The pen also comes equipped with a Schmidt ink converter.
