Introducing the Yakumonuri

 Yakumo Byakudan

The second in the series.

Platinum Pen Co., Ltd (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Toshiya Nakata) has launched the  Yakumonuri fountain pen, “Yakumo Byakudan,” using the painting of the ceiling of the Izumo Shrine as a motif, adding to our current existing “Izumo” luxury fountain pen brand.

We have applied an ebonite barrel to the Byakudan, which is known as the best material to be used in the body of a fountain pen for its heat-resistant performance.

The rising sea of clouds, which are the symbolic image of the Izumo Shrine, are expressed with the maki-e technique, just as the floating clouds painted on the ceiling of the Izumo Shrine, are used as a motif and described brightly with colored urushi. Yakumonuri technique applies several coatings of sukiurushi (transparent lacquer), in which urushi becomes increasingly more transparent with time, thus the pattern starts slightly to emerge, changing into a deeper and richer pattern within its glossy finish.

The streamlined  design of the Izumo Byakudan offers a relaxed and perfectly balanced writing experience, that does require the cap to be posted.

You will also receive a manufacturer’s warranty card when purchased through our authorized dealers.
