About Danitrio Bamboo Story Fountain Pen Series:

Bamboo Story is a Danitrio series pen. The pen's ebonite body is carved into the shape of a bamboo and the nodes are created by producing ridges at intervals across the pen length. The intentional uneven terrain on the pen body enables different portions of the pen to reflect light differently off the surface, resulting in a very elegant display of urushi and its captivating colors. Bamboo is a major symbol in Japanese culture and represents steadfastness, strength, and resilience. It was often believed that that bamboo forests were the place to go if an earthquake erupted as there was a thought that bamboo had a strong enough roots to hold the integrity of the earth.
