 Hand-painted by highly-trained Japanese Artisans

Kara-nuri is one of the styles of Tsugaru-nuri artwork that originated from the Aomori Prefecture of Japan. In Kara-nuri, there is a pattern of amorphous specks typically of a color that contrasts with its background color scattered throughout the entire pen body. Tsugaru-nuri's inception was first in lacquerware in the Edo Period few hundred years ago when there was a search for a style of art that would depict the symbol of nobility, prestige, and extravagance.

About Danitrio Hyotan Fountain Pen Series:

The Hyotan in Japanese means "Gourd" or "Calabash", which is a fruit that can sometimes come in an hourglass shape. This series of pen does come in the hourglass shape; in the US, collectors of Danitrio pens have coined it the Mae West, one of the biggest Hollywood stars in the twentieth century known for her hourglass figure.

 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.
