Chateau Monarch UR01 Tame-nuri and Gold Leaf Fountain Pen
Continuing on with the Chateau Monarch. The first Fountain pen from Chateau.
These pens are truly amazing to hold and handle. The quality of them are top notch. Although it may look like a simple pen to manufacture, its quite the opposite. The Faceted and Tapered shape alone is difficult when hand turning pens. The cap ring really shows amazing detail. These pens start with a 100% hand turned ebonite body then we apply around 30 layers of Urushi and gold leaf. We start with 2 Layers of black Urushi, then a layer of red Urushi. Then we apply gold leaf. Then we apply 2 more black layers, gold leaf and then red urushi. We repeat these steps 5 times to get this very in depth and deep technique. Between the layers we give 3-4 days of drying. The process for each pen takes a very long time. But the end result is amazing! You can see a video of this pen below…
