Danitrio makes remarkable hand painted pens using the Japanese skill and craftsmanship that has been mastered over the last few thousand of years. Maki-e is performed on the pen, after it has been hand selected, and prepared.
The Maki-e on this pen is more than just paint on a pen, it has texture, it has character. This is achieved through many many days and hours of carefully applying the Maki-e. On each of the pens that are hand painted, you may find the artists signature.
Good basic paintings start with base painting, which the craftsmen paint twice or three times with Urushi mixed with finishing powders to make the base hard and durable. Then followed by the interim paintings which is done by one or two layers preparing for finishing paintings.
The specialness of Urushi is that the Urushi has a layer of membrane and the color of the layer will be lighter and shinier, and the Tame-nuri will look lighter and shinier within several months to a year.
This pen comes in very special solid wooden box inside a nice cloth wrap.
