And from there, many good things are believed to come. We hope that with our Dream Pen, many dreams will be written about and become true.Urushi lacquer is applied with a brush to an object by the hand of a traditional craftsman. After the careful application of many layers of Urushi and ornamentation, Urushi brings great protection for the art piece as it makes the object able to withstand erosion from water, acids, alcohol, and changes in weather conditions. Each creation of the Urushi art piece requires a lot of time and skills. And you can feel the dedication of an artisan when you touch and feel the quality of the final product. Every single pen is painted by the hands of Japanese craftsmen in Wajima. The creation of an Urushi fountain pen takes a least 3 months or even longer to make sure the final piece of art is at its most beautiful finish. Material & art: Ebonite, Urushi. Filling mechanism: Converter or Cartridge (European International Standard). Nib: #6 Jowo stainless steel. Compact air-tight cap: Preven dried-out ink problem.

The hand-making process makes every single pen a unique one, there is no pen exactly resembling one another.
