The Danitrio Genkai is a very large eyedropper filler that provides a superb surface for the hand-finished urushi and Maki-e designs for which this company is known. With a closed length of 6.8" and a weight of 45.6 grams, this is sure to satisfy pen owners looking for a hefty writing instrument.
All Danitrio pens are available from us as special order items - pens already in stock with Danitrio will usually ship in one week or less.
In Tame-Nuri technique, semi-transparent urushi is painted over a base color. As the natural urushi matures, the outer layer becomes more transparent and the underlying color shows through more brightly. Differences between darker colors such as Bengala, Murasaki, and Shu can be subtle and nuanced, particularly when a pen is newly finished.
The Genkai takes 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 before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
