Hammered Sterling Silver #9 Migaki Fountain pen - Platinum nib - Platinum
Platinum Hammered Sterling Silver #9 Migaki fountain pen, a celebration of Japanese silversmithing. More specifically the technique here used is known as Tankin where the metal surface is hammered down thinly by hand over an anvil, revealing the material's natural light and shimmer. Indeed the dappled texture, like the surface of still pond hit by rain, creates a multitude of dapples each catching a different refraction of light. This craft has been utilised in Japan for centuries in the making of many types of objects: buddhist ceremonial utensils and statues, weapons and swords, tea ceremony accessories, even chef knives today - all noble items of cultural significance treasured by their makers and owners.
This pen bears the signature of Junichi Imwamura, a craftsman renowned for this technique and commissioned by Platinum for this luxurious implement. Beyond its aesthetic value, consider how the use of silver can bring a new sensory layer to your writing experience - soft and warm, it offers the sensuality of natural materials like wood and leather and is alive with use and age (and does not give any metallic odor to one's hands as brass and copper can do).
