Inspired by science, geometry, and balance, the Taccia Kaku-Tate LE combines old-world techniques with innovative design to produce a fountain pen that is not only beautiful in its minimalism, but functional and luxurious in look and feel. To represent these intricate patterns, Taccia specially selected balancing tones paired with a perfect 12-sided barrel in its most innovative Reserve LE to date.
Each Kaku-Tate LE starts off with raw ebonite barrels, coated with many layers of urushi lacquer by Taccia's Japanese craftsmen. After multiple layers of color are added, each barrel is precision sanded to bring out both the intricate 12-sided shape and the duo-tone contract from the urushi lacquer underneath. Each barrel is then individually polished and finished with additional urushi to protect and seal the work and bring out its brilliant finish.
Each pen comes with a specially fitted Japanese 14K gold nib.
