The products are not designed to put the cap on - this is to protect the Sabinuri Urushi Lacquer.
What makes the Wabi Sabi pens extraordinary is the special attention to detail in making the writing instruments by hand. First, a Urushi undercoat is applied. When the layer has dried, the surface is polished smooth and then the Sabi layer is applied. This is polished and reapplied to create the illusion of roughness. Finally, several coats of Urushi are applied and polished for color and a metallic look.
The pen comes in a nice wooden case with converter, ink cartridges, duster and certificate. The pen has a large 21kt gold nib, available in medium or wide sizes.
Filling system: converter and cartridge type
Nib: M or B 21K gold plated
Only 88 of each color in the Wabi Sabi line are made worldwide.
