About Danitrio Genkai Fountain Pen Series:
The owner of Danitrio had called this series of pens "Genkai", meaning "limit" in Japanese. The intent was that this would be the largest pen series of Danitrio and no other pen would be larger than it. Little did he know that later on he would develop a series with an even larger pen called the Yokozuna.
This pen is furnished with an 18k Gold, two-toned #8 nib.
