The renowned Aizu-nuri technique of Urushi lacquer art was born in the Aizu region of the western part of Fukushima Prefecture and has been popular since the Edo Period.
The humid local climate, typical of basin-shaped valleys, is ideal for handling Urushi.
Various beautiful decorations are used, including traditional symbols of good fortune.
The fine, shallow engravings of decorations give the designs an elegantly gentle expression.

Introducing the newest additions to the Sailor Bespoke collection: Sailor Nawate Haku-Chirashi pens. This exquisite writing instrument is available in Koh (gold foil), Yoh (silver foil), Kaku (copper foil).

Beginning with an Urushi-soaked Ebony Wood to set its foundation, it undergoes various stages: starting with a polished base coat, then detailed striation marking and washi paper dressing, and then firming its base with a striking blackish-gold foil. The pen is finally crowned with its unique colored foil decorations, sealing its impeccable finish.

Lacquer artist, Toru Yoshida, is the third generation head of “Shikko Yoshida”, an “Urushi (Japanese lacquer)” atelier in the Aizu Wakamatsu region.
He does not limit himself to the Aizu-nuri lacquering technique but fuses various forms and techniques that best suit each lacquerware he crafts.
His ingenuity has given birth to Sailor Pen’s Traditional Japanese Lacquer Art NAWATE Haku-chirashi Fountain Pens.
The striation that flows vertically through the fountain pen cap gives it the visual effect of being elegantly long and provides a stable grip for capping and uncapping.
It is a masterpiece of beauty.
