Taccia Empress Shin Tsugaru Nuri Fountain Pen - Ao-iro - Limited Edition

The fountain pens in Taccia's Empress Collection pair Taccia's oversized Empress body with a Sailor King of Pen (KOP) 18k gold nib. These pens feature the Rankaku and Raden Maki-e techniques (the inlaying of quail eggshells and abalone shells) combined with expert application of urushi lacquer to create stunning and unique works of art.
These Tsugaru Nuri pens take their name and design and from the traditional lacquerware technique created in the Aomori prefecture. Ao-iro features a beautiful dark blue urushi body with decorative quail eggshell and raden circular inlays. The variety of different sized and placed raden circles makes the pen reflect different colors in changing light. The design is limited to 20 pens worldwide, individually numbered on the pen barrel by the maki-e artist.

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, lightweight yet durable ebonite barrel. The cushion screw cap closure allows for an airtight seal that prevents the pen from drying out. Each series is limited and signed by the maki-e artisan who created it, truly emphasizing the tradition of craftsmanship.

The Taccia Pen Company was founded on the core belief that pens should be affordable, stylish, and well-built. Taccia strives to develop and produce pens that cater to all walks of life and occasions.
