Kaku-tate Umegasane Fountain pen by Taccia – a perfect model for precision writing
The Kaku-tate fountain pen, made of ebonite, has a perfect long, dodecagonal shape. The Japanese master lacquerer has coated the fountain pen with several layers of red urushi lacquer, giving it an unparalleled shine and brilliance. Each of the twelve edges has been carefully and delicately highlighted with a lighter shade of red to make it stand out.
Urushi lacquer, which comes exclusively from the sap of the Chinese lacquer tree (an Asian tree), has been used for thousands of years to protect objects once it has been applied and dried. It has an incredible capacity to resist corrosion, scratches and even impacts. This type of fountain pen therefore has an exceptional lifespan that can easily be extended over several generations.
The brand has equipped its model with a superb clip with a stylised silhouette. Gold plated, it contrasts beautifully with the red colour. The thread of the section is made of metal, which attests to the brand’s seriousness.
Its two-tone 14-carat gold nib is made by Sailor and is available in sizes EF, F, MF, M, B, MS and Z.
You will receive your Kaku-tate Umegasane fountain pen by Taccia on a velvet cloth in a wooden box, accompanied by its converter, two cartridges and a beautiful kimono case that will allow you to store it and have it with you every day. As Taccia chooses the kimono case randomly, the colour of the one shown in the photos will not necessarily match that of the one you receive.
