Platinum Pen introduces Buduo Nezu Iro urushi a Wajima urushi lacquer fountain pen from its Izumo brand series that embodies traditional Japanese techniques. The gentle luster and smooth texture unique to urushi are created by polishing the lacquer after application, which only skilled artisans can achieve. Indulge the best of traditional Japanese craftsmanship with a modern vibe.

Budou Nezu
The dull reddish-purple color produced by adding a grayish tone over wine red color (budou) enjoyed popularity from the mid-Edo to early Showa Period. The gray color (nezumi) gives a calm and elegant aura known as “aristocratic gray” for its delicate hue. It was often used as the base color of the kimono depicted in Ukiyo-e prints and appreciated by many. The wine color was called Ebi in ancient times, also known as ebi-nezu.

The 18kt gold rhodium plated nib has an exquisite, delicate feel and a responsive touch, ensuring beautiful handwriting regardless of the pressure applied while writing. After nearly a century of experience producing high-end writing instruments, Platinum created the nib design with a slightly harder and moderate resistance; this nib is suited to heavy-handed writers and those with a delicate touch.
