About the collection of Platinum KANAZAWA-HAKU: The highest level of craftsmanship has been generously poured into these fountain pens in magnificently decorating them with Kanazawa leafs.
The use of 18K makes the tip of the pen firm and resilient, instead of making it too soft. Special attention is also given to the thickness of the pen tip: the base of the tip is thin and becomes thicker toward the end of the tip, which provides the tip with a perfect balance between appropriate resilience and the ease of writing.
The comfort of writing without the application of much pressure on the tip has been pursued and brought to a reality as a result of data analysis of about 30,000 writing materials. Meticulous efforts are focused on the materialization of the ease of grip and comfort of writing.The history Kanazawa-haku – Kanazawa Gold Leaf:
Kanazawa is known as the motherland of Gold Leaf in Japan with 98% of the production of the whole country.
Kanazawa Leaf (Kanazawa Gold Leaf) craftworks are the culmination of brilliant skills, which have been handed down from one to the next generation of leaf craftsmen, who carefully finish each and every piece of leaf craft products by hand, supported by a diverse supply of Kanazawa leafs including gold and silver leafs, in the wealth of tradition and culture of this ancient city, Kanazawa.
Kanazawa-leaf is made under a long manufacturing process which includes 7 steps: Gold joint, Stretching Gold, Stub out, Pull out, Thinning, Checking quality, Shape the Foils.The design of the collection:
A scenic spot of Japan or a scene from the Japanese four seasons is intricately depicted here one by one on a fountain pen with utmost care, taking advantage of unparalleled techniques of Kanazawa leaf craftsmanship such as a technique to create delicately different sheens out of a gold leaf, or a technique to generate three-dimensional effects on a design. The result is the fountain pen with a gorgeous and graceful appearance.About "Gold Fish":
For over a thousand years, goldfish have been one of the world's most popular pets, but what makes them so intriguing? In addition to their brilliant metallic-colored bodies and graceful fins, ancient Asian cultures believed that goldfish bring happiness and prosperity, and, as a result, they have been depicted as symbols of good luck, whether as motifs on period textiles, ceramics, paintings, lacquer ware, toys and other common household items. In modern Japan, goldfish images are still widely used to decorate yukata (informal summer kimono), towels, folding fans, and even business cards. One of today's most popular attractions at Japanese summer festivals is the game of kingyo-sukui, or goldfish scooping, a pastime that originated as an amusement in the Edo period (17th century)The making of Gold Leaf for "Gold Fish" design:
Movements of ripples are exquisitely depicted by changing colors of ripples from gold to silver.The goldfish in vermillion reinforces the dynamic impression.
