The hand-turned ebonite fountain pen is a true work of art, featuring a sleek and elegant design. Without a clip, this pen is ready to roam freely on the page, unencumbered by the confines of convention. The cap and barrel have been meticulously turned and lacquered with 15 layers of Black Roiro Urushi, resulting in a stunning depth and luster. But wait, there's more!
In a stroke of brilliance, the final layer of lacquer was sprinkled with fine 22k gold dust, creating a delicate shade that dances at the ends of the pen. This remarkable technique, known as Bokashi maki-e, adds a touch of whimsy and allure to the overall design. It's like your pen is dressed in a fine sprinkling of stardust, ready to bring a sprinkle of magic to your writing endeavors.
The attention to detail doesn't stop there. The pen has undergone a meticulous polishing process, performed three times with Kijomi Urushi, very fine mineral powder, and the delicate touch of camellia oil rubbed lovingly with fingers. The result? A pen that feels as smooth as silk in your hand, gliding effortlessly across the page.
The nib holder block, turned in metal and lacquered with Roiro Urushi sprinkled with 22k gold dust, is a testament to the harmony of form and function. It not only provides a secure grip but also adds a touch of elegance to the pen's overall aesthetic. The 14k gold nib, with its 5mm ink feeder and fine tip size, ensures a delightful writing experience every time. Crafted by the renowned German manufacturer Bock, this nib combines precision with a touch of magic.
Versatility is at your fingertips with the international standard connection, allowing you to use either cartridges or a converter for your ink choice. The gold-plated and lacquered metal ring, adorned with black urushi at the mouth of the cap, adds a subtle touch of sophistication. The gold-plated and lacquered elements with black Urushi at the ends of the barrel and cap tie the design together, creating a harmonious visual symphony.
To add a personal touch, the Bottegando brand "B" proudly marks this pen, while the signature "S.M." of the talented author is a testament to its craftsmanship. And don't forget the unique serial number U78, elegantly inscribed in red Urushi lacquer on the pen cap. This pen is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, just like the words you'll write with it.
So, grab hold of this magical writing companion, and let your creativity take flight. The Bottegando Italia "Bokashi" Maki-e Fountain Pen is your key to unlocking a world of endless inspiration and writing wonders. Get ready to create stories that sparkle with every stroke!
