Introducing the new Izumo nib - 18k gold with Izumo logo now elegantly stamped below nibs breather hold, accompanied by Izumo clouds gracing the nibs tines.
The Platinum Iro Urushi fountain pens showcase the captivating Izumo design, celebrated for its embodiment of luxurious curves. What may seem deceptively simple is, in fact, a masterful arrangement of subtle arcs, with a seamlessly convex cap profile flowing into the pen's barrel, transitioning from convex to concave and back again. Each facet of the Platinum Iro Urushi fountain pen follows a sensuous curve, devoid of prominent straight lines—an embodiment of design finesse. Unsurprisingly, the Iro Urushi has earned its place as an iconic collection from one of the most esteemed pen manufacturers in the industry.
Derived from artwork during the Endo period, Iro Urushi (meaning colored urushi) serves as a wellspring of inspiration. The upcoming additions to the Platinum Iro Urushi Fountain Pen Collection in Summer 2023 will unveil the NEW fountain pen nib. This 18kt gold nib maintains its excellence while undergoing a subtle transformation—eschewing the Izumo logo below the breather hole, yet embellished with Izumo clouds adorning the nib's tines.
*PLEASE NOTE: The color representation of the #82 Bubou Nezu in the photo leans towards a grey/lavender shade, despite looking more brown in videos and images.*
