Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Platinum Izumo Red Urushi Fountain Pen, which comes with its wooden Platinum presentation box (including outer), pen kimono and information leaflets. The pen has barely been used and is presented in wonderful condtion.
The Izumo is crafted from ebonite, which then has five coats of Urushi lacquer applied on top. Following this, three coats of wax-polish are applied, rubbed with pulp paper and then oil polished. The Tamenuri process gives a subtle red hue where the barrel and cap meet with the trim being gold-plated.
The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and being a cartridge / converter (supplied), you’ve the best of both worlds when it comes to ink.
The important details are as follows…
– 18k Medium Nib
– Wonderful Condition
– Platinum Presentation Box
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
