This Raden Technique is a traditional Japanese decorative craft used for lacquer. Pelikan incorporates it in its new piece introducing the Maki-e technique traditionally addressed to the Japanese Royalty as a symbol of power and wealth. In order to gather such a special finish, Pelikan exposes the piece to different processes and production steps, using a wide range of materials as the traditional Urushi lacquer and abalone. This becomes a laborious process, however the fantastic results are completely worth it. This fountain pen Raden Sunrise Red is coloured using the special Japanese lacquer called urushi. Moreover, in order to make it's raden stripes Pelikan applies the following technique: First, an abalone shell is placed on the ground, flattened with a hard stone into very thin sheets and then cut into narrow strips. Finally it is affixed to the lacquer coating.
This masterpiece is available with a M nib. Of course, Pelikan will keep its quality with its finely-chased 18 carat gold nibs. Also the pen is presented in a traditional Japanese gift box made by Paulownia wood.
