The word Housoge suggests a ""flower in the imagination,"" as in a blossom in paradise, a concept dating from the Chinese Tang Dynasty and Japanese Tenpyo period. This charcoal-on-blue Portable Housage Fountain Pen uses an engraving technique. The traditional vine-and-flower motif covers not only the cap and barrel, but also the gripping section.

Shown here in cigar style, this pen makes an elegant statement. Its base color is the ""Kikyo"" (Blue) urushi with Black urushi layered over and engraved with the Housoge design. An artist engraves a motif on the ""Kikyo-Tamenuri"" urushi lacquer surface of the pen, utilizing the unique ""Chinkin"" technique developed in the town of Wajima. In time, the blue under-color will softly emerge from the deep surface color.

A closeup reveals the quality of the engraving, which adds to the feel of the pen between the fingers.

The solid softwood shipping box, heavy decorative rice paper, and woven fabric pouch make this Nakaya urushi pen a lovely gift. Elegant packaging has always been a hallmark of the Nakaya line.
