The Platinum Maki-e pen collection uses real gold powder when lacquering their Maki-e fountain pens. Maki-e is a traditional Japanese lacquer art where a makizutsu or a kebo brush is used to decorate a pen body with Urushi lacquer. Each pen displays a hand painted traditional Japanese motif that has gold dusted accents. The pen’s artwork is slightly raised from its surface, enhancing the depth and texture. The Platinum Maki-e Phoenix fountain pen is well-balanced with a body and cap constructed from Black Aluminum and a gorgeous Black Lacquer finish that features a striking painted Phoenix design. The Phoenix is often used to depict an elegant and noble presence that alludes to long life and prosperity in many Asian cultures. The Phoenix fountain pen comes equipped with a firm, smooth-writing 18-Karat Gold nib available with Fine nib.
