URUSHI MAKIE ART: CUSTOMIZED JAPANESE VINTAGE PEN
This is the part that excited me most when I got a hold of this pen. Urushi is the type of material which one needs to see to appreciate. The pen base is vintage 1960s fountain pen but it was customized by applying urushi and adorned gold-silver powder decoration. I always try to find unique pens for my customers and last week I went to meet a fountain pen collector hoping to get my heads full with some interesting fountain pens. What is worth, I found myself the grail of treasure. The collector, he just does not have huge collection of vintage Japanese pens but he also loves to customize them by putting Urushi or decorating makie arts on it. All the pens which are customized are handcrafted so you may see there are some imperfections in applying urushi. However, overall you can truly appreciate the effort and beauty. I was thrilled to know his idea of preserving the vintage pens by coating them with urushi which are more than 70-80 years old. So, the pen is protected and the decoration also gives the pen uniqueness. He also explained why these pens are timeless; I finally realized he was right. Each of the pens were best sellers during those time and later applied urushi and come came with makie, most importantly the finishing of each pens can make a difference when you try to feel it by touching the ursuhi and art craft. I hope you would this pen to have it in your collection.
FASCINATION OF JAPANESE MAKI-E
I am very pleased to be expanding my line of fountain pens to include high end Platinum Urushi maki-e pens. Today I will introduce one of my best collections: Platinum Urushi Makie Tropical Fish fountain pen.The ancient Japanese tradition of maki-e is an art form that combines meticulous attention to detail with deep symbolism and mythology. The training for maki-e artists is so rigorous that a novice works for decades before making a pen without the supervision of a master craftsman. To give you all the details of these incredible works of art, I sat down with bunch of books about maki-es to learn the ins and outs of Platinum maki-e fountain pens.
PLATINUM URUSHI MAKIE
The thin and delicate design gives a novel and nostalgic feel. The pen nib made of K14 and K18 gold with the form always loved, falls comfortably in place in ones hand when held. Thus, it naturally draws one to write on the paper. We think to write beautiful letters, you need to express your true feelings straight from your heart.
The ancient Japanese tradition of maki-e is an art form that combines meticulous attention to detail with deep symbolism and mythology. The training for maki-e artists is so rigorous that a novice works for decades before making a pen without the supervision of a master craftsman. Vintage Urushi Makie comes in gold plated 18K nibs in a variety of widths and sizes, and a good range of filling systems and Urushi Lacquer Makie Brass coating. The look is a classic/ancient mix with traditional Japanese art.
PEN SIZE, DESIGN, COMFORT
All of these pens of this collections are comfortable and well designed. The Maki-e does not interfere with holding the pen. I post my caps, and have not had a problem (yet) with this effecting the artwork. The Urushi makie I personally find the most comfortable to hold. The Platinum is slightly wider than the Pilot Urushies, but shorter (not counting the nibs). All the pens have resin sections, so the gripping area is extremely comfortable and contains no maki-e. The cap on the Platinum snaps on; the other pens twist. A converter came for your convenience.
The pen had smooth, flawlessly-writing nibs straight out of the box. Since its Japanese, keep in mind that a Fine is more like a Western Extra-Fine, and an Extra-Fine is more like a needlepoint. In terms of flex Platinum is kind of springiest. The nibs is gold: The Platinums Urushu Makies is 18K yellow gold. The Platinum nib is the best decorated. If I have to say overall experience of using this pen, I would say, by far best writing experience from Platinum. Whoever, likes Platinum Urushi would completely agree with me for sure.
ON THE PAPER:
Generally Platinum nib sizes run one size smaller than their western counterparts. Pen nib features 18K solid gold and the flow is even and the nib is tolerant to variations in angle, in short the nib has a very large sweet spot. About the writing experience, the nib is butter smooth as is expected from a Platinum.
Comparing it with other pens, Platinum Urushi seemed to write a wetter line, does write smoother when compared to any of my fountain pens.
