Platinum Izumo Hon-Urushi Hira Maki-e Hama no Matsu Shore Pine
The Platinum Izumo Hon-Urushi Hira Maki-e Hama no Matsu Shore Pine fountain pen has been handcrafted by Maki-e artist Sohkou Ooshita using time intensive Kaga and Hira Maki-e techniques. Gold and silver powders have been applied to the urushi base of this ebonite body pen to realize the lyrical motif of a pine shore and ocean waves.
Not just a beautiful work of art in its own right, this pen is provided with your choice of 18k solid gold nib and qualifies for our complimentary nib tuning services. Platinum's 18k nibs also serve as excellent starting points for many of our exclusive nib customizations.

Kaga Maki-e arose during the Edo period in Japan and was favored by the feudal patrons of Maki-e artists as one of the most favored techniques for decorating precious lacquer ware. Hira Maki-e technique involves sealing the gold and silver powders used with an added layer of urushi, and provides a smoother surface than raised Taka Maki-e technique.
The pen ships in a paulownia softwood presentation box with decorative kanji script, and includes a complimentary ink bottle, ink cartridge, and converter. Platinum takes care to make sure that the presentation of this writing instrument is as elegant and tasteful as the pen itself, making this an excellent gift item.
