I thought I might share with you this very nice and pretty Fountain Pen.
It is the Platinum Celluloid Karakusa, and we are honoured to count with one unit in stock!
Celluloid is a flammable, half transparent material which is made by mixing nitric-cellulose(sulfuric acid and nitric acid are added to cellulose), camphor and alcohol. When colored it is splendid. It softens at 90 degrees celsius and hardens when cooled. As it is easy to cast and carve and also produce in a variety of colors and patterns, most pen barrels were made of this material in the many years ago.
However, as it must be dried for more than 6 months to prevent deformation and twisting, it has been recognized as a difficult material. Recently, it has become popular again with those who pursue unusual antique designs.
Thank you very much for following us!
