Platinum Izumo "kurikara-Ken" A Mighty Pen !

Recommended Posts

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

I got one but was disappointed that, what looks like silver trim in the photos, is really a dull grey that doesnt stand out well against the otherwise fully black pen. Also disappointing is how hard it is to get the trim on the barrel to line up with the trim on the cap. Usually the best I can achieve is a near alignment, which distorts the overall effect of the trim. Id expect more of a $1200 pen.

Izumo pens look nice, but I cannot be convinced by the threading smack in the middle of the section...

that's where my fingers go
