Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke Collection, each Sailor 1911 Full-Size Rei Urushi-nuri Tsugaru Sabi-nuri is hand-finished by artist Hirokazu Shimamori in natural urushi lacquer utilizing the Tsugaru-nuri technique traditional to Aomori Prefecture in the north of Japan. We can provide your choice from among the full range of Sailor 21k solid gold nibs.

Combining urushi lacquer finish with the popular 1911 Full-Size body, the pens in the Rei Urushi-nuri series will be a favorite for many pen aficionados. The Tsugaru-nuri technique used on this specific pen has a history stretching back to the Edo period and was specifically created in part to allow for urushi lacquer to cure in the colder weather of Aomori Prefecture. Each pen is individually hand-finished by the artist, and no two pens will ever be exactly alike.

The pens in the Rei Urushi-nuri series utilize Sailor's convenient cartridge-converter system - the provided converter allows for the use of any bottled fountain pen ink, and the pens can also fill using easy-to-use Sailor brand disposable ink cartridges. Each pen ships in a special paulowina softwood presentation box and also includes a fabric pen pouch.

Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts optimum pressure and ink flow to your own personal preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character and distinctiveness of your writing on the page. If you are a collector who would prefer the pen remain unadjusted, please indicate this in your notes during checkout. We are an authorized Sailor retailer.
