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. 

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.

About the Artisan:


This pen was hand-painted by Koichiro Okazaki (Kogaku). Born in 1959. He is a renown Maki-E artisan in Japan and considers himself wholeheartedly traditional when it comes to Maki-E. He is recognized by the Japanese Government as a Dento Kogei-shi, which an honorary title meaning "master of traditional crafts" and is given only to a select few artisans who have a significant contribution to their craft. Many of his Maki-E works have been accepted and rewarded at national art exhibitions. He had learned Maki-E from a master and became an independent artisan 5 years later. He was recognized with Kao (authorized monogram) by Kuda Munenori of Sado Omote school in 1991.
