Platinum Izumo Iro Urushi Fountain Pen - Aitetsu Iro
Platinum introduces “IRO URUSHI,” a Wajima Urushi (lacquer) fountain pen, from its IZUMO brand series that embodies traditional Japanese techniques.
Designed based on the concept of enjoying the refined luster and colors of urushi lacquer, the IRO URUSHI model has a sturdy body unique to IZUMO fountain pens, which is applied with “iro urushi*,” or “color lacquer,” created using pigments with a Japanese elegance and touch.
The gentle luster and smooth texture unique to urushi lacquer is created by polishing the lacquer evenly after applying so that no brush marks are visible, which can only be achieved by skilled craftsmanship. Meanwhile, the nib, clip and other metal parts have been applied with a colorless rhodium finish for the first time for the IZUMO series to allow users to fully enjoy the exquisite color of the body.
Indulge in the best of traditional Japanese craftsmanship of IZUMO IRO URUSHI, which brings together a time-honored craft with a modern vibe.
*Iro urushi: Color lacquer created by adding pigments to clear lacquer produced by refining raw urushi lacquer (ki urushi)
