In the 17th century, Tsunanori Maeda, the feudal lord of the Kaga Domain, collected a series of historically important craftsmanship techniques now referred to as Hyakko-Hisho. Taccia has created the Kaga Limited Collection to pay homage to the history and tradition of this celebrated period. Each fountain pen is made by hand in Taccia's urushi studio on Wajima, Japan, using traditional inlay techniques enhanced with precious metals and lacquer. To blend the old with the new, each fountain pen comes fitted with an 18k gold nib made by Sailor in Japan along with an individually polished ebonite barrel. Each series is limited and signed by the maki-e artisan who created it, truly emphasizing the tradition of craftsmanship.
