Platinum Shikkoku Kurikara-ken Fountain Pen Zoom Platinum Shikkoku Kurikara-ken Fountain Pen

The design of this stunning pen from Platinum is based on the story of Fudo Myo-o, one of the Five Great Kings in Japanese mythology, and his sword, Kurikara-ken. Legend has it that Fudo Myo-o turned himself into a huge sword in order to defeat a devil. When the devil changed himself into the same sword, Fudo Myo-o then turned himself into a dragon, Kurikara Ryu-o, and swallowed the devil-sword.

The epic battle is depicted in the Kurikara-ken fountain pen using the taka maki-e technique, in which charcoal powder is applied several times to raise the matte black urushi lacquer that is applied to the ebonite body. The facial expressions are picked out using lustrous black roiro urushi lacquer. The devil-sword is highlighted through the taka maki-e technique, but this time using silver powders.

18k gold nib finished in rare ruthenium, available in three sizes - fine, medium and broad. The clip and ring are also finished in matte ruthenium.

Dimensions: 154mm long, 18mm max diameter, 33.7g. Can use standard international ink cartridges if fitted with Platinum Adapter

Supplied with a 30ml bottle of blue-black ink, a blue-black ink cartridge and a limited edition Kurikara-ken converter in a luxury gift box made from black paulownia wood.
