Combining urushi lacquer finish with the popular 1911 Full-Size body, the pens in the Rei Urushi-nuri series will be a favorite for many pen aficionados. The Akebono gradation technique on this pens is a speciality of the artist Masanora Sumi, who has over forty years experience as a master craftsman in the traditional craft center of Wajima. Each pen is individually hand-finished by the artist, and no two pens will ever be exactly alike.

The pens in the Rei Urushi-nuri series utilize Sailor's convenient cartridge-converter system - the provided converter allows for the use of any bottled fountain pen ink, and the pens can also fill using easy-to-use Sailor brand disposable ink cartridges. Each pen ships in a special paulowina softwood presentation box and also includes a fabric pen pouch.

Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts optimum pressure and ink flow to your own personal preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character and distinctiveness of your writing on the page. If you are a collector who would prefer the pen remain unadjusted, please indicate this in your notes during checkout. We are an authorized Sailor retailer.
