For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Namiki Yukari Royale Lacquer Black No. 20 Urushi Fountain Pen with 18K Medium NIB. This fountain pen has never been inked, new in the original box with all the Namiki documentation and Certificate of Authenticity. I consider this Fountain Pen to be in New Old Stock, Never Inked, Mint Condition.
The Namiki Yukari Royale Urushi Fountain Pen shown here in Lacquer Black makes an elegant statement, through the use of more than 20 processes in Roiro Urushi lacquer finish which takes at least three months to complete. The rich deep Lacquer Black color is adorned by just the slightest bit of gold trim, keeping the pen sleek and streamlined.
The fountain pen features a wonderful 18K/750 nib tuned by the masters at Namiki, assuring long-lasting, impeccable writing performance. The Namiki logo can be seen on the clip as well as on the nib, which also depicts an image of Mt. Fuji. The iridium tipping measures at .76mm when measured with digital calipers. I have never inked the pen as I wanted to keep the pen in Mint Condition.
Urushi, the Lacquer Black material that forms the surface of this pen, is made from the sap from the Japanese lacquer tree. The process of collecting the Urushi (sap) and applying many layers of lacquer to this fountain pen takes three months or longer to complete. This technique, though painstaking, gives this fountain pen its deep lustrous sheen and has been used by Namiki craftsmen since the company's inception back in 1918.
This Namiki Yukari Royale Lacquer Black Urushi Fountain Pen measures 6" in length capped. The diameter of the barrel is .56" inches. Weighs 1.61 ounces.
The fountain pen comes in a nice softwood presentation box, includes a Con-70 converter, bottle of ink, and ink cartridge to get you started writing with this gorgeous work of art.
The Namiki Yukari Royale Lacquer Black Urushi Fountain Pen displays exquisite craftsmanship to this line of hand-finished fountain pens.
