As rare as it is beautiful, this Taccia fountain pen pays homage to the historic city of Wajima, Japan. Located in Ishikawa Prefecture, the city is known for its lacquerware, called Wajima-nuri, made using unique techniques that date back to the 14th century. These techniques strengthen the lacquer and make the wares some of the most durable around. Handcrafted and buffed to a shine by an experienced artisan in Wajima, this fountain pen is named for the tanto: a traditional Japanese short sword that’s since become a symbol of protection against evil and misfortune. And indeed, the design evokes a sense of peace and calm—its gradient moving from black to crimson as it makes its way toward the 14-karat-gold Japanese nib.
