This great Platinum brush pen was made using the maki-e method which involves building up design patterns above the surface through a mixture of metal powder, lacquer, and charcoal or clay dust.
The tip of the new brush pen is made from a ultrafine polyester fiber that was developed to reproduce the original old brush writing. It can use Platinum carbon brush pen ink. This ink is water resistant, has no discoloration, has good compatibility with polyester fiber, and can express beautiful calligraphy.
If you experience any blurred writing, please exchange the cartridge.
In case of using a new cartridge, leave the pen on downward position (after inserting cartridge), let the ink slowly flow to the tip for about 1 minute, it will be ready for use after a couple of minutes.
It comes in a elegant traditional Japanese box.
