Introducing the Yakumonuri
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.
Stock # PIZ 100000#19
The Byakudan comes with a gift box and an exclusive bag for the fountain pen.
The bag includes a pocket to store two reserve cartridges a decorative wrap to securely close the pen bag.
You will also receive a manufacturer’s warranty card when purchased through our authorized dealers.
