Danitrio Kaijin Nami
The Danitrio Kaijin Nami (Wave) fountain pen is a generous-sized eyedropper filler featuring hand-painted maki-e, hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl over an ebonite body. A limited edition of just 20 pieces worldwide, each pen has been meticulously handcrafted in a process requiring many months. The wave motif, a strong tradition in Japanese art, is represented here on top of the mother-of-pearl inlays. The result is a surface that captures fierce beauty of a powerful ocean. Opalescent light coming through between the gold maki-e shimmers as the pen is turned in one's hands.
As with any pen you purchase from us, the Danitrio Kaijin Nami qualifies for our complimentary nib set-up and optimization service. It is provided with your choice of #8 solid gold nib, which can serve as an excellent starting point for our unique nib customizations.

Gold dust sprinkles are embedded in the black urushi lacquer of the ends, middle band and gripping section. The wave pattern re-appears on the crown of the cap as a vignette restating the singular theme of this pen.
The artist's signature appears above the edition number showing that this pen is produced in only 20 pieces worldwide.
The mother-of-pearl inlays follow a long tradition in the manufacture of fountain pens beginning in early days of the 20th century. Notably Parker and Waterman's fountain pens helped to establish this decorative approach with many fine and now rare examples.
As luxurious as the Kaijin Nami is in appearance, it is also an eminently practical and superb writing instrument - big pen lovers will enjoy the substantial heft and generous ink capacity this pen provides.
The 18K solid gold nib is created specially for Danitrio by Germany-based Bock, while the Maki-e work on the pen's surface is done in the traditional craft centers in Japan. This fusion of east and west is an intrinsic part of the Danitrio experience.
