IKKAKU by Nahvalur Yan-Zhi Fountain Pen
Our new design boasts three stunning colors inspired by traditional Chinese color schemes used by royalties: 胭脂Yan-Zhi (Vermilion), 朱丹Zhu-Dan (Cinnabar Red), and 葱绿Cong-Lü (Scallion Green). Each color tells a story, mimicking the reflection of the sky or fire and inviting you to immerse yourself in the rich cultural tapestry our pens bring to life.
At the heart of our pens lies the art of raw lacquer, a meticulous process that involves laying the base, scraping the topcoat, and applying colored paint multiple times. The pen undergoes sanding, lacquering, and polishing in a rhythmic dance that repeats more than a dozen times, taking several months to complete. This intricate journey requires precision and patience, making each pen a testament to craftsmanship.
Throughout this process, the pen is sent to the furo multiple times, ensuring that the lacquer dries perfectly under specific humidity and temperature conditions. The result is not just a writing instrument but a work of art that embodies tradition and innovation.
