The TACCIA Raden Reserve Autumn’s Brushes is crafted from ebonite with raden and Tsugaru-nuri urushi. Tsugaru-nuri (津軽塗) is a regional form of lacquerwork from Tsugaru, Aomori prefecture in Japan. The technique involves creating a textured surface with embedded pieces of raden which are then lacquered with gold and copper powders and polished smooth to reveal intricate patterns.
The TACCIA Raden Reserve LE comes with a specially fitted Japanese 14K gold nib made by the highly regarded Sailor Pen Company.
