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 Tame-Nuri technique, semi-transparent amber-colored 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.
Danitrio Hyotan pens are also available in Ki-dame (Yellow), Midori-dame (green), and Murasaki-dame (Purple). Retail $1200, our price $960.
