Take Negoro Kanji


Take Negoro - Bamboo Pens with a sort of "Negoro Nuri" Urushi Lacquer. Most negoro-nuri consists of coatings of black lacquer covered with coatings of red lacquer or other the way round. After the wear-and-tear of many years of use, the upper lacquer is worn away, exposing the lacquer coating underneath in various places. It represents an aesthetic concept called "Yô no Bi" beauty through use. On those pens there is no colored undercoat but the pure Bamboo visible through the black lacquer. Caps with Kanji meaning Getsu/tsuki = Moon, Un/kumo = Cloud, otoko = man
