Taccia Tanto Limited Edition Wajima Urushi Fountain Pen
The Taccia Limited Edition Tanto Wajima Urushi Fountain Pen is a classic masterpiece! “Tanto” is a traditional Japanese short sword used by samurai as a self-defense, close-combat weapon. As Japanese swords evolved, the Tanto grew to become a charm for protection against evil and misfortune. This time-honored pen pays homage to the Wajima region of Japan. World renowned for its unique Urushi and Maki-e techniques that date back to the 14th Century, Wajima Urushi utilizes a special layer of cloth to the urushi lacquer, which strengthens the barrel.
Each barrel is beautifully handcrafted and hand-buffed by a top artisan from Wajima. The barrel design – an artistic balance between crimson and black, representing peace and calm, is reflective of the culture and geography of Wajima. This special limited edition features an ultra-unique metal neck sleeve that can be easily screwed on to each barrel grip section-designed as an add-on part for the optional use and desired comfort level of each writer. This collection is limited to 25 pieces worldwide, features a 14K gold Japanese nib and is delivered with a pen stand.
