The Platinum Izumo Bombay Black Wood fountain pen is an outstanding example of Japanese craftsmanship. The barrel is hand-made from Bombay Blackwood, a variety of rosewood.
The large 18k, two-tone gold nib is available in three widths (F, M, and B). Each Platinum Izumo fountain pen is packaged in a wooden box with a pen kimono and includes a single cartridge and converter.
Tagayasan is a name that means 'as hard as an iron sword'. This name comes from its use in making swords in Asia. The wood is very hard and durable, and it is also used for furniture, interior decoration, sticks, and wooden swords. To preserve the quality of the wood, it is dried for 20 days to remove the water content. The wood parts are then handcrafted and polished by skilled artisans.
