The Platinum Izumo Galaxy Starlight Raden fountain pen is a showcase for this meticulous form of Maki-e art. Each pen requires a minimum of six months to be produced. Normally provided with only limited nib choices, we can make it available to you with your choice of Platinum 18k solid gold nib.

Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts optimum pressure and ink flow to your own personal preferences. Platinum 18k nibs also make excellent starting points for many of our exclusive nib customizations - choose the Broad or Extra Broad points for best results with our popular Architects Point customization.

A traditional craft technique with a centuries-long history in Japan, Raden Maki-e technique involves the careful application of raden shell over multiple layers of natural urushi lacquer. The shape and structure of the pattern of raden flakes on the surface of the pen is considered vitally important - the Maki-e artist will even use a tool to adjust the position of individual pieces of raden shell to ensure a harmonious design.

A strong outer layer of clear urushi lacquer protects the Maki-e work and allows this pen to function as a superb every day writing instrument. The provided converter allows it to use any bottled fountain pen ink, and the Izumo model can also use convenient Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges.

Each pen ships in a special softwood presentation box with kanji style artwork on the front. A fabric pen kimono and complimentary ink bottles is also included. We are an authorized Platinum dealer.
