The Story

Platinum Izumo Fountain Pen. The barrel is hand-made from tagayasan (Bombay Blackwood), a variety of rosewood. This is given a finish of Urushi lacquer - one of the most traditional of Japanese techniques.

Urushi is a natural lacquer and five coats are each painstakingly applied, allowed to harden and polished in turn. A final coat is wax-polished, rubbed with pulp paper and oil-polished - all repeated three times. The resulting rich, deep finish is highly prized and can be seen on many Japanese craft pieces.

The 18k gold bi-colour nib is the usual supreme Platinum quality. Izumo is presented in a wooden giftbox imprinted with the Izumo logo and includes a special fabric pen pouch. Please note that the pouch may diiffer in design from what appears in the photograph. Supplied with a converter for use with bottled ink. Platinum recommends Platinum Fountain Pen Ink, though of course any quality bottled ink can be used. Also takes Platinum ink cartridges.


The Nitty-Gritty 
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings. The pen has previously been inked but is in near perfect condition 

Writing
The nib is a lovely smooth 14k gold broad nib. Platinum nibs are renowned for their superior quality, this nib is no exception.
