For over 2 decades now Danitrio has made and continues to make remarkable hand painted pens using the Japanese skill and craftsmanship. During the peaceful Tokugawa Era (1603-1868) Samurai had too much leisure time to spend, and the designs by Urushi paintings on their scabbards became fashionable as salesmen’s ties in dress suits today.
The paintings in various free patterns on scabbards were called Saya-nuri, and we call it Kawari-nuri today. There are almost unlimited ways to paint on the scabbards and we use such free pattern paintings on pens also, while they are not the authentic methods of Maki-e. We can categorize Kawari-nuri by different materials and techniques they use.
The pen fills via cartridge convertor and features a size 18kt gold nib.
