The Platinum Kanazawa Leaf fountain pen in the Moon and Rabbit design features a screen maki-e design of a phoenix, on a lacquer over brass body. The gold-plated trim accents the pen perfectly, and the 18k gold nib is a soft and smooth writer! The snap cap makes a soft click sound so that you know the pen is secured before putting it in your purse or pocket.
The design uses variety of different techniques to apply a gold leaf to depict "the moon and autumn grasses" while delicate silver lines realistically portray the rabbit on silver leaf.
The Platinum Kanazawa Leaf Fountain pen fills via the included proprietary Platinum converter for use with bottled ink, or with Platinum cartridges as well.
