The Izumo Kurikara-ken is inspired by the legend of “Kurikara Ryu-o”. The pen is decorated with the mighty sword that belonged to Fudo Myo-o, one of the Five Grand Kings of "Godai Myo-o". The legend tells about Fudo Myo-o transforming into a sword to fight a devil force. The devil changes into the same sword and Fudo Myo-o mutates quickly into a dragon “the Kurikara Ryu-o” and swallows the devil with his evil powers. It seems like the whole pen is disguised in a matt black coat. The design of the Kurikara dragon in Sumiko Taka Maki-e has been achieved by heaping up charcoal “sumi” powders to achieve a three-dimentional effect. To match this pen Platinum choose for a ruthenium coated clip and trim and white gold President nib. And they were right. This Izumo Kurikara-ken is an amazing and intriguing pen *** Catherine http://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/detail/izumo-kurikara-ken
