  • Piccolo Writer Kuro-tamenuri(黒溜) [no.02018] Ebonite
    Price: US$650

    "Tame" means "pool" and "nuri" refers to the lacquer coating process. You can actually see through the layers of clear urushi lacquer as if you were looking into a pool. Wajima artists use "shu urushi" (red color) for the base urushi on the barrel, and "shu-ai-urushi" (mixtures of red and clear lacquer) for the finish coats. When the process is finished, you can still see the base surface of red urushi. After this coating process, craftsmen polish the surface over and over by hand for months in order to attain greater transparency, allowing you to clearly see the underlying red urushi surface.

  • Piccolo Writer Shu-nurihanashi(朱・塗り放し) [no.02012] Ebonite
    Price: US$700

    A cap is screw-type. This model has no trim and no distinction between cap and barrel. This model is piccolo and is supposed to be used without posting the cap when writing. As ebonite is a very light material it is possible to make the barrel thicker and longer. Therefore the balance point can be set easier to provide comfortable writing for everyone. This is Regular shu-nurippanashi (un-polished vermillion) model. Wajima urushi nuri shines very beautifully. In addition to our already launched "Shu" items, we added un-polished new "Shu" in the range. Since the technique does not go through the polishing process after the paintwork is finished, it is called "self-indulgence paint". When selecting the materials, the craftsman needs to pay very attention. THe paint becomes defective if there is any failure in paint due to the fact that there is no post-processing of paint. This is the reason why this surface is popular for a long times.
