What is Raden
A decorative technique commonly used for traditional crafts such as lacquer ware. The inside of the shell, the part of the nacre with iridescent luster, is cut out in a plate shape.
The technique of pasting on Urushi lacquer or wood, fitting it on the carved surface, and the crafts made using this Maki-e technique. This technique has been widely used for furnishings, accessories, and sword fittings since ancient times.
This pen nib has an exquisite, delicate feel and a responsive touch, ensuring beautiful handwriting regardless of the pressure applied while writing. After nearly a century of experience producing high-end writing instruments, we created the nib designed with a slightly harder and moderate resistance, this nib is suited to heavy-handed writers, as well as those with a delicate touch.
