Platinum Izumo Yakumonuri Byakudan Urushi Fountain Pen
Platinum's Yakumonuri Byakudan Urushi fountain pen is a striking example of traditional Japanese craftsmanship. Inspired by the clouds painted on the ceiling of the Izumo shrine, each pen, hand-turned from ebonite, takes months to complete and exhibits the wide variety of lacquer disciplines found in Japan.
First, delicate sheets of pure-gold leaf are hand applied to the ebonite body. Mystic clouds are then hand-painted using silver powder, accented with kinsunago (gold dust.) Using brilliant red, orange, and green urushi lacquers, more clouds are added, each outlined with silver powder. Then finally, layers of transparent sukiurushi lacquer coat the scene, protecting it from the elements. Over time, the sukiurushi lacquer will become more transparent, allowing the subtle details and brightly-coloured usushi to shine through vividly. Due to their handcrafted nature, each Yakumonuri Byakudan Urushi fountain pen is unique in its finish.
These luxurious fountain pens showcase Platinum's iconic bi-colour, 18-karat gold President nib, making for an unparalleled writing experience - crafted to be passed through generations.
