Just slightly smaller than the similar Densho, and using a convenient cartridge-converter filling system, the Takumi is a more than full-sized pen--with a closed length of 5 13/16” and a barrel diameter of 5/8”, the Takumi is also one of the more affordable introductions to the Danitrio brand.
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.
Kuro-Keshi technique involves polishing the ebonite body and coating it with multiple matte layers of black Urushi lacquer to prevent fading and bring up a low luster. Our price for the Takumi Kuro-Keshi is $800 - for more information click here.
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 Takumi pens are available in the dark red Shu-dame color seen above, as well as in Ki-dame (Yellow), Kuro-dame (black), Midori-dame (green), and Murasaki-dame (Purple). The Takumi Tame-Nuri retails for $1300 in any of the colors listed above - our price $1040.
Roiro-migaki technique utilizes a specially refined and oil-free urushi which is then burnished with a special charcoal in a process that can last for several days or more. Danitrio Takumi pens are made available in Roiro-migaki in Ao (Blue), Kuro (Black), Midori (Green), Murasaki (Purple), and Shu (Red). Retail $1300, our price $1040.
