Kunisaki 国東 Handmade Glass Dip Pen
Limited 1 Piece for 1 Design Only
Kunisaki 国東 Glass is a unique glass dip pen collection which is handmade by experienced glass masters from Kunisaki, Japan. Each pen is completely designed, formed and crafted by hand over a course of many months. Every design is inspired from different beautiful creatures in Kunisaki Peninsula (国東半島, Kunisaki Hanto), located in Kyushu Japan. And since everyday life of the artisan ties closely to the nature, original idea of each pen is lively reflected on the final artwork. You won't be able to find a same pen with this since the one and only designed is crafted only once.
How the glass pen was made?
Normally glass pen is made by attaching already-produced glass nib to the glass body which is made from glass rob. However, our glass pen is originally made from a lump of glass which is harder to made but stronger in quality and more flexible in size and presence.
Looking through body of the glass pen, you will enjoy a look of nature which is created by adding flowers and gold powder while forming the glass.
The tipping point is carefully shaped one by one by repeating the process of forming and testing to make sure the final result is not only a good-looking but also a well-performing nib.
Kunisaki and where the same two things do not exist and our glass pen which is made in Kunisaki is also one-of-a-kind glass dip pen!
* Please note that we do not publish information and pictures of the artisans per their requests.*
This glass dip pen has a tipping size between Fine and Medium nib size (European standard size). The nib writes smoothly on any kinds of paper that is compatible with fountain pens and glass pens.
