Aizu Urushi - Akebono-nuri

Worldwide Shipping

Estimated Delivery:
August 2021 

Important Notice: The hand-making process makes every single pen a unique one, there is no pen exactly resembling one another. The one you will receive might be slightly different from the one here in the pictures but if you appreciate that beauty of hand-craftsmanship, you will be happy with the pen we've made for you.

As you might have known from our Sekai collection, Aizu Urushi is one of the oldest and most famous lacquerware in Japan. Originated from Aizu - a region of heavy snowfalls, Aizu Urushi has a history of over 9000 years. This time, we would like to introduce to you the three distinctive techniques of Aizu Urushi: Akebono-nuri, Koma-nuri, and Metalic Nashiji.

Akebono-nuri (曙塗り) is an Urushi technique that creates a duo-toned finish with a combination of Red and Black Urushi. Being considered as one of the most difficult techniques, Akebono-nuri involves a complicated process of Urushi coating.

On top of the base Black Urushi, Red Urushi is painted with a blurring technique making it the soul of the design. As time passes by, the Red Urushi will become brighter and the underneath Black Urushi will partially reveal, a beautifully gradient design will be achieved. 

Base material: POM

Art: Aizu Urushi, Akebono-nuri

Filling mechanism: Converter or Cartridge (European International Standard)

Nib: #6 Jowo stainless steel, Wancher 18K gold
