Highly regarded in Japan, bamboo craft has a history that stretches back for centuries. In typically inventive fashion, Platinum here applies this traditional craft to create a distinctive and yet highly practical writing instrument.

The term Torafu (#10) is derived from torafudake, tiger-spotted bamboo, and each pen has been individually hand-crafted utilizing traditional techniques. Bamboo is cut, dyed, hand-applied to the cap and barrel, and then finished with a layer of natural urushi lacquer. http://ow.ly/md2I30gLuat http://ow.ly/i/AIKNB http://ow.ly/i/AIKNJ http://ow.ly/i/AIKNV http://ow.ly/i/AIKO9 http://ow.ly/i/AIKOf http://ow.ly/i/AIKOs

These little fellas have gone into hibernation. Keep the spirit alive this winter with the Nakaya Portable Cigar Bat in Kuro-tamenuri. The sharp shapes of the bat, with pointed wings, contrast beautifully with the round shapes of the moon and clouds and will hopefully keep your writing inspired through the long cold nights until they return next spring. http://ow.ly/FIym30grKYy http://ow.ly/i/AiIe8 http://ow.ly/i/AiIaQ http://ow.ly/i/AiIcu http://ow.ly/i/AiIdb http://ow.ly/i/AiIdE http://ow.ly/i/AiIeF http://ow.ly/i/AiIeY http://ow.ly/i/AiIfh http://ow.ly/i/AiIfA

Gozame refers to the particular bamboo weaving pattern seen here, which is completed in the Ankokushoku (#1) hue, literally "pitch-black color." http://ow.ly/6PQR30gLrRQ http://ow.ly/i/AIGIH

The Kaweco Classic Sport Transparent offers an inside look at the workings of your fountain pen, and when equipped with a 14k solid gold nib manufactured especially for Kaweco by Germany-based Bock, this pen also offers a range of performance normally associated with pens costing two or three times as much. http://ow.ly/YPxD30gtRRK http://ow.ly/i/AlucR http://ow.ly/i/Alud4 http://ow.ly/i/Aludm http://ow.ly/i/AludB http://ow.ly/i/AludN http://ow.ly/i/AludZ http://ow.ly/i/Alue5

The finish in #15 Benikabairo, literally "traditional red color," adds to the unique appearance of this pen. http://ow.ly/1JvC30gLtG7 http://ow.ly/i/AIK3M http://ow.ly/i/AIK3W http://ow.ly/i/AIK4b http://ow.ly/i/AIK4m http://ow.ly/i/AIK4v http://ow.ly/i/AIK4H http://ow.ly/i/AIK4V

This is a seriously shiny pen! It will reflect not only your words onto the page but your image in its surface. The Centennial Prestige Metallic is also a hefty pen weighing in at 49.6 grams. Some other pens in this line weigh 28.8 grams making the Metallic a bit of a monster. And there are folks out there who are look for just that, a pen that feels wholly substantial in their hand! http://ow.ly/wrBr30gL5v8 http://ow.ly/i/AIbtu http://ow.ly/i/AIbrW http://ow.ly/i/AIbqk http://ow.ly/i/AIbqI http://ow.ly/i/AIbr2 http://ow.ly/i/AIbss http://ow.ly/i/AIbsW

The Elegance is a shiny twist on the Visconti Homo Sapiens model. Durable acrylic resin and a convenient cartridge-converter filling system combine to make this an ideal Homo Sapiens for any homo sapiens with an on-the-go lifestyle. lifestyle.http://ow.ly/uW5K30gDfB5 http://ow.ly/i/AxLXp http://ow.ly/i/AxLYp http://ow.ly/i/AxLZv http://ow.ly/i/AxLXR http://ow.ly/i/AxLWY http://ow.ly/i/AxLZR

Help us welcome the latest in Aurora's ongoing Stellar Collection! The 888 Marte should be arriving mid to late December.

"Marte" is Italian for Mars, the Red Planet, and the red Auroloide body combined with rose gold trim gives this pen an appearance appropriate to its namesake. http://ow.ly/dLNS30gL2vQ http://ow.ly/i/AI6P4 http://ow.ly/i/AI6Po http://ow.ly/i/AI6Pz http://ow.ly/i/AI6PP

The Namiki Emperor Toryumon is a master work of Maki-e art from artist Masahiro Yamada. The motif is inspired by rapids in the gorges of the Longmen Mountains of China's Yellow River Valley. A local legend has it that river carp who successfully ascend the rapids are transformed into dragons, and the expression "climbing the dragon's gate" has become a popular aphorism associated with overcoming challenges and adversity. http://ow.ly/VM5N30gJQ18 http://ow.ly/i/AGEeC
