The different MAKI-E techniques

  • Hira maki-e: The simplest technique, but one that does not allow any mistakes. The design is drawn by sprinkling gold or silver dust on the still damp lacquer. When it is dry, the surface with the pattern is polished.
  • Togidashi maki-e: Same, but with one more step; several layers of precious powder are added to give volume to the design.
  • Taka maki-e: a three-dimensional technique, where the painter builds his motif in relief, layer after layer, with lacquer or charcoal powder.
  • Shishiai Togidashi maki-e: This is the simultaneous use of several techniques, in two or three dimensions.

We are a writing instrument manufacturer that started with a fountain pen in 1919, and the name "fountain pen" is still part of our company name. Fountain pen is made based on a capillary action where liquid (ink) is sucked from a very narrow gap, so it's a writing instrument in which essence of all science including ink (chemical), metallic engineering, plastic molding and mechanical engineering come together. We were the first in the world to make the cartridge type fountain pen fit for practical use and by applying this technology to other writing instruments, we were able to invent products that are widely used in government agencies and offices such as fluorescent markers that are not disposable and can be used repeatedly. To be able to deliver products that can be appreciated by our customers, we examine the best materials that complement these technologies. Due to the fact that fountain pens have a more elastic pen tip than other writing instruments, the thickness of the line and shade of the ink appear on the paper. This especially unveils the detailed texture of the handwritten text. Platinum Fountain Pens realize the smoothest writing comfort as the finest materials are used for the pen tips.

"When you look at a handwritten text, your feeling becomes a little warmer because you're coming in contact with another person's feelings..."

Many things have happened in the past 100 years, and we received support from many people. Thank you. However, if humans continue to be humans for the next 100 years, then nothing should change in that interaction of feelings. We believe that our mission is to introduce a writing instrument that is slightly ahead of our time. Also, while making use of our abundant experience and history in the field, we will think of ways to integrate new technologies with new m aterials to create new products.
