King of Pens Urushi Kaga Maroon fountain pen from Sailor – a majestic model for great writing
The famous King of Pens – KOP for those in the know – is now available in 12 new colours for the Urushi Kaga collection, in this case an intense maroon. It has a sober silhouette, devoid of any rings to enhance its superb appearance. Made of ebonite, it is coated with urushi lacquer, made from the sap of a tree found only in Asia, the Chinese lacquer tree, after it has matured for 15 years.
The craftsman mixes the sap with other compounds to form the urushi lacquer, which he coats the fountain pen with. To achieve such brilliance, the craftsman applies up to 12 coats of lacquer, each of which must harden and dry before the next is applied. The design of such a fountain pen therefore requires several months of work.
The clip is gold-plated, as is the beautiful converter typical of the KOP, which is a real work of art. The two-tone nib is made of 21-carat gold with 24-carat gold and rhodium plated. It is available in sizes M and B. The KOP Urushi Kaga comes in a beautiful wooden box with a 50ml bottle of black ink, an ink cartridge and a branded polishing cloth.
