Sekai Tsugaru Urushi - Kuro-age

Worldwide Shipping

ESTIMATED DELIVERY: JULY 2020

The Sekai fountain pen is born from the aspiration to be connected and peaceful like the World Tree in many mythologies. This collection embraces the idea of connecting the world with the arts.

The base materials of the Sekai fountain pen have been carefully selected from natural precious woods from all over the world such as Ebony and Sandalwood. It is then crafted with traditional arts such as Urushi, Maki-e or decorated with high-quality Japanese Sterling Silver clip.

Tsugaru-nuri or Tsugaru Urushi refers to lacquerware made in Tsugaru - a city located in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. Being known as one of the most skill-intensive Urushi technique, Tsugaru-nuri is sophisticated yet stunningly beautiful with its unusual finish.

Sekai Tsugaru fountain pen is crafted with Kara-nuri - a high-quality Tsugaru-nuri technique that illustrates distinctive speckled patterns created by four to six different Urushi color lacquers. With this technique, many layers of different Urushi are applied unevenly to wooden or ebonite surface. After a long period of 3-4 months when Urushi lacquer is dry, artisans will start polishing to even the surface. The final finish will then become smoothly glossy and show the mottled patterns. The whole process takes 6-7 months and is totally done by hands.

The "age" in Aka-age or Kuro-age refers to the effect of the main color that is finally raised over other complementary colors.

In Japanese aesthetics, Wabi-sabi (侘寂) refers to the acceptance of imperfection or also called "wisdom in natural simplicity". This what you will find in our Sekai Urushi fountain pen. The natural imperfection of Urushi and wood might appear on the body of fountain pen as minor roughness or uneven spots. With the appreciation of natural materials, our artisans intended not to remove this "flawed beauty" but instead spent many months on meticulous coating to achieve the most shiny and elegant art that can last for life.

And because of this Wabi-sabi concept, the Sekai Urushi fountain pen is different from one to another so we call it a one-of-a-kind fountain pen.
