Pilot Urishi Fountain Pens
Each lacquered ebonite fountain pen is hand created by maki-e artisans in Japan. The uniform mirror-like finish is created using the Roiro Urushi technique. The first step is the lacquering process, followed by a 2-3 weeks drying time. It is during this time of specific temperatures and degrees of humidity that a chemical transformation occurs, producing a durable and brilliant sheath of great strength and protection. After the curation period, each Custom Urushi Fountain Pen is polished three times to create its simple beauty.
