OUR PENS


We use 100% Japanese ebonite to turn the barrels into a fountain pen except Kaijin Collection which are made of very high quality mother of pearls with parts of ebonite. And then all our pens are made for having Maki-e works on it to be our collections.
All Genkai, Mikado, Kaijin, 12Kaku, Densho and Yokozuna Collections are ED (Eye Dropper) system fountain pens, while the others, Takumi, Hakkaku, Hanryo and Hyotan are fountain pens with C/C (cartridge/convertor system).
All clips on our pens are made of brass either gold or silver plated, while we also paint the clips with genuine Urushi on it to make the pens look better.



EYE DROPPER


  (1) Unscrew the front section.
  (2) Fill with ink up to the lower edge of the stopper.
  (3) Screw the front section back tightly.
  (4) Loosen by unscrewing the tail 1 mm- 2 mm (1/32"-2/32") wide to allow ink to enter the
    front section for writing.
    Caution: If the tail is opened too wide, it may cause ink to overflow over the nib.
  (5) After use, hold the pen upward and screw back the tail tight. The ink stopper will block the
    ink flow. And the pen should be closed with the cap tightly.
    Caution:
1.
You may leave the pen with the nib horizontally and the tail open when you
        don't write, but the pen should not be left with the nib downward and the tail
        open while stop writing.
     
2.
The tail and the cap should be kept tight at all times when you have the pen in
        the pocket or left on the desk.

THE AVAILABLE CLIPS

We generally used either gold plated, rhodium plated or sterling silver clips for our pens. However, when we found painted clips are much better, we just leave this matter to our Maki-e shi and let them paint whenever they think they should do it to match the pens and that’s why we have painted clips with Roiro-migaki, Tame-nuri , Nashiji-nuri , and others. Since the way to paint on clips are almost unlimited, while some customers may not like the way our Maki-e shi do or just like gold plated of sterling silver. As we have many different clips with Urushi painted or gold plated, please understand that the clips on the pens are based on the availability in our stock, and any Urushi painted clip will be charged additional $100.00 MSRP, effective from March 31, 2014.
