Wancher x Kuretake Kindai Maki-e represents Japanese symbols, culture, and folklore. Its design is inspired in part by the Japanese 17th century painting style known as Rimpa, which has influenced many artwork to date.
It incorporates natural elements such as flowers, trees, mountains, and animals, which are also common in Japanese traditional paintings. For the final touch, the design is coated with clear urushi to add extra protection for the gorgeous design.
The fountain pen comes with a bullet shape and it is made with a single brass sheet. The craftsmen have to utilize a single brass sheet to forge it downward until it reaches the shape of a pen. To achieve a light but long-lasting pen, such painstaking technique necessitates both delicacy and strength.
Wancher x Kuretake Kindai Maki-e Kakuju Red features a decoration with the cranes on a red body. It is is equipped by a steel nib and fills ink via standard cartridge/converter.
