Danitrio Kama-nuri Shu Red on Densho 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 Densho, is the smallest pen they make that used the Eydropper system. Slightly smaller than the Takumi, but still a nice size, being slightly thicker than a Montblanc 146, but slightly thinner than a 149. They are fitted with #6 size 18kt gold nibs and fills via eye dropper.
