 Hand-painted by highly-trained Japanese Artisans

Kama-nuri, also known as kamakura-bori, describes the technique in which lacquerwork is carved or chiseled out in a pattern-like fashion. It was originally applied to lacquered wood but for this pen, it is applied on lacquered ebonite. Many of Danitrio's kama-nuri lines have these hand-chiseled patterns configured in an array pattern. This pen was hand-painted first by maki-e artisan Masanori with an irokeshi-dame finish and then guest chiseled by Kazushi Kaneda.
