The Izumo Bamboo pens feature finely woven bamboo on the barrel and cap. Japan has a long history of bamboo crafts, which have been passed down through the generations from craftsperson to craftsperson.
This Ankokushoku model is dyed after weaving to give it a stunning, almost completely black hue, "ankokushoku" being roughly translated as "darkness color." Finally, to seal in the color and add to its beauty, it is coated with sabiurushi, a traditional Japanese lacquer.
The Izumo bamboo sports an 18K gold nib and arrives in an elegantly simple paulownia wood box with a bottle of ink and a pen pouch.
Nib Material: 18K Gold
