 The Aka (red) Mt. Fuji theme is inspired off of the phenomenon that occurs when the red light from the sun shines down on the mountain on a bright and clear day.

Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan towering at a height of over 12,000 ft. It is the second highest volcano in Asia. It last erupted in 1708. Mt. Fuji is beautiful cultural wonder that has been captured in artwork all across Japan.

About Danitrio Hyotan Series:

The Hyotan in Japanese means "Gourd" or "Calabash", which is a fruit that can sometimes come in an hourglass shape. This series of pen does come in the hourglass shape; in the US, collectors of Danitrio pens have coined it the Mae West, one of the biggest Hollywood stars in the twentieth century known for her hourglass figure.

 Nib Details:

This pen is furnished with an 18k Gold, two-toned #6 nib. What has been described by many Danitrio collectors as the fireball nib is an image of “Kaen-Kohai” which is a flame-shaped halo of “Fudo Myoo” (Acala, the God of Fire). This halo is commonly painted on the back of Japanese Buddhist statues. 

 An UrushiPen.com representative will contact you to confirm nib tip size preference (fine, medium, broad, or stub) following the placement of the order.
