Danitrio Bamboo collection pens are created using Takenuri technique, a traditional craft in which multiple layers of Urushi lacquer are painstakingly applied to achieve a textured effect emulating natural bamboo. An eyedropper-filler with a huge ink capacity of 3.6 ml, this is a large pen with a closed length of 6.4” and a barrel diameter of .77”
All Danitrio pens are available from us as special order items - pens already in stock with Danitrio will generally ship in one week or less.
In Matte Tame-nuri technique, layered colors are applied over the ebonite body, but the final polished layer present in standard Tame-nuri finish is not applied. Rather it is a subtle, understated matte surface which highlights the shape of the pen.
The Danitrio Bamboo Matte is also available in Ki-dame (not yet imaged). Retail $2000, our price $1600.
Danitrio Bamboo collection pens use the Danitrio #8 nib, available in Fine, Medium, Broad, and stock Stub. These 18k nibs are well-suited to customizations such as Cursive Italic and Left Oblique - see our nib customizations page for more information.
Unless requested otherwise, each pen you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
