This striking pen continues the tradition of the Japanese phoenix. She’s grand and graceful, never showy, delicate but powerful. Her golden plumage flows over the pen in elegant swirls, from the cap to the base. The phoenix, or hōō in Japanese, has been a part of Japanese mythology for centuries. Like many parts of Japanese culture, it was probably borrowed from China. The phoenix is associated with the imperial family and is still used in relation to the modern head of state.

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.
