The Namiki Emperor Fountain Pen shown here in Red 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 Vermilion 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 1.07mm when measured with digital calipers. I have never inked the pen as I wanted to keep the pen in Mint Condition.
Urushi, the Vermilion 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 Emperor Vermilion Urushi Fountain Pen measures 6 7/8" in length capped. The diameter of the barrel is .68" inches. Weighs 1.68 ounces.
The fountain pen comes in a nice softwood presentation box, eyedropper, and bottle of ink to get you started writing with this gorgeous work of art.
The Namiki Emperor Vermilion Urushi Fountain Pen displays exquisite craftsmanship to this line of hand-finished fountain pens. The natural Urushi lacquer provides a stunning finish along with some of the best made 18K Gold Nibs in the World today! I would consider this Namiki to grade in Mint Condition, Never Inked, and New Condition. This is a very special, high-cachet fountain pen that is ready to write or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
