About Danitrio Sho-Hakkaku Fountain Pen Series:
The Sho-Hakkaku is a Danitrio series pen that is octagonal-shaped. Danitrio wanted to create a shorter version of the Hakkaku. Hakkaku means "discovery" in Japanese.
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.
