Chateau Archduke Rasen Prototype 2 Tame-nuri and Gold Dust Fountain Pen
This pen is a one off Urushi Prototype. Below in the pictures is the pen you will get.
Introducing the Chateau Archduke Rasen (spiral). These pens start with a 100% hand turned ebonite body then we apply Many layers of Urushi with gold Dust. It has beautiful brush strokes that invokes brush strokes from an oil painting. This one has a little less brush strokes than the other Prototype, but they are some fine strokes.
It fills via Cartridge Converter, but with a little silicone grease on the section threads or an O-ring they can be Modified to an Eyedropper. They are carved at the end of both the cap and body into a spiral. The nibs are 18k gold with Rhodium plate with Chateau Mask logo. Nibs available are Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, 1.1 Stub and extra flexible. The flexible nib is very flexible and is not suggested for people who have not used flex. Also its suggested that you use the pen as an ED if you are going to buy the full flex as the converter does not like to keep up to the amount of ink needed when fully flexed.
