The Golden Pear Pen is a compact wood pen (made of pear wood with brass inserts) with a black plastic section. The urushi lacquer design shows a gold bronze sprinkle pattern over a red-black tamenuri base. The pen has been covered in layers of black base urushi lacquer (wet sanded with #1000 grid sandpaper after each application and curing). For the next step layers of red urushi where applied and cured. The next layers where done with clear urushi, until the pen seemed to be abrown in color. On one of the topmost layers gold bronze powder has been sprinkled. Once the urushi was completely cured, the pen was wet sanded until the red gold pattern became visible and showed through the lacquer. For the finishing urushi got applicated on the pen and wiped off with filtering paper. After a final curing period the lacquer was burnished and polished several times. Length of the production process: 2 months.
The pen comes with a matching pear wood box that is urushi lacquered as well.
