Danitrio Kama-nuri Blue Tame-nuri on a Sho-Genkai Fountain Pen
Danitrio brings an exciting new technique to their line of pens, Kama-nuri!
It is similar to the previously used techniques of Kamakura-bori (Painted on carved surface) and Cho-shitsu (carving on painted layer on layer till the Urushi become thick enough to carve the design). Kama-nuri is painted on already finished Tame-nuri or Roiro-migaki first and then carving by hand on it to finish Kama-nuri, a double works. It is an exclusive technique developed by Danitrio artists. Maki-e shi work on Tame-nuri, Roiro-migaki or other basics paintings for Kama-nuri and then they are hand carved by Danitrios engraver, Mr. Kazushi Kaneda. The Kama-nuri Collection is special because they are all hand done stroke by stroke and carve by carve throughout the process.
Danitrio makes beautiful pens using the Japanese skill and craftsmanship that has been mastered over the last few thousand of years. One of their lines of pens is the Genkai, which is a fairly large pen, long and cylindrical in shape. Many of these have flat tops and bottoms. They are fitted with #8 size 18kt gold nibs and fills via eye dropper. This pen is a Sho Genkei, which basically means short Genkai. It is still fitted with the oversized nib and fills via eyedropper.
MSRP is $2,000
