Product Description

We are excited to announce a collaboration between Regalia Writing Lab and Ikkaku By Nahvalur, introducing the 绀青Gan-Qing (Chinese Azure) fountain pen. This limited edition pen features the innovative Crossflex nib by Regalia Writing Lab and is adorned with gradient Urushi lacquer, symbolizing the fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern pen-making technology.

The crossflex nib is engineered for durability, precise control, and a soft, flexible writing experience without sacrificing the quality of line work. Its design focuses on achieving a quick snapback and a satisfying writing sensation, tailored for those who appreciate the art of flex writing. All crossflex nibs are handmade and tuned by the nibmeister himself.

At the heart of our pens lies the art of raw lacquer, a meticulous process that involves laying the base, scraping the topcoat, and applying colored paint multiple times. The pen undergoes sanding, lacquering, and polishing in a rhythmic dance that repeats more than a dozen times, taking several months to complete. This intricate journey requires precision and patience, making each pen a testament to craftsmanship. Throughout this process, the pen is sent to the furo multiple times, ensuring that the lacquer dries perfectly under specific humidity and temperature conditions. The result is not just a writing instrument but a work of art that embodies tradition and innovation.

Raw lacquer ensures that our pens remain bright, durable, and vibrant over time, with excellent gloss retention properties that prevent color changes. Just like the ancient beams and columns of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, our pens promise a long service life. Raw lacquer has proven to withstand the test of time, preserving the beauty of our creations for generations.

The permeability of raw lacquer allows it to express the texture and pores of the ebonite, providing a realistic and visually captivating representation of the material's beauty.
