Three New Models from the gIzumoh Luxury Fountain Pen Brand
Featuring the Painting of the Ceiling of Izumo Shrine to Be Newly Released

Three New gYakumonurih Fountain Pens Are Simultaneously Released from
gIzumoh Brand Made through Japanese Highly Skilled Craftsmanship

On November 20, 2015, Platinum Pen Co., Ltd (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Toshiya Nakata) will launch three Yakumonuri fountain pens: gYakumo Byakudan,h gGinsen Yakumo,h and gTogi Yakumo,h using the painting of the ceiling of the Izumo Shrine as a motif, adding to our current existing gIzumoh luxury fountain pen brand.

We have applied an ebonite barrel to all of the three models, which is known as the best material to be used in the body of a fountain pen for its heat resistant performance. The arising sea of clouds, which are the symbolic image of the Izumo Shrine, are expressed with the maki-e technique, and the floating clouds painted on the ceiling of the Izumo Shrine, are used as a motif and described brightly with colored urushi. Yakumonuri technique applies several coatings of sukiurushi (transparent lacquer), in which urushi becomes increasingly more transparent with time, thus the pattern starts slightly to emerge, changing into a deeper and richer pattern within its glossy finish. This streamlined king size design offers a relaxed writing that does not need the cap on the back of their pens.

Manufacturing process of gYakumo Byakudanh
1. Paste the gold leaf on the entire ebonite body.
2. The sea of clouds is painted with silver powder and kinsunago (gold dust) is spread as an accent.
3. Using a replication of the illustration from the ceiling of the Izumo Shrine as a motif, the floating clouds are described with brightly colored urushi. To accentuate the design, the outlining has been drawn in silver.
4. Lastly, multi-layers of sukiurushi are applied as the finish.
