Danitrio MIKADO Ujigawa-no Tatakai (Battle at Uji River) Maki-e Fountain Pen

The Battle at Uji River, also known as "The Race at Ujigawa" in 1183, was a race between Sasaki Takatsuna and Kajiwara Kagesue on who would be first to cross Uji River to fight the enemy, the force of Heike Hei Dynasty.

The pen's design shows one of them crossing the river. This battle made the situation between Genke (Gen Dynasty) and Heike reverse, and Genke destroyed Heike in 1185.

The main technique used for this design is Shishiai Togidashi Maki-e.

This pen's creator is: Kosaku Kitahama
Signature: Ko
Title: Dento Kogei-shi
Born in 1952
Learnt Maki-e from Master Shinzan Somata II and became an independent Maki-e shi when he was just 25 years old. Since then, he has received very important awards at exhibitions each year, including the highest honor of Judge's Special Prize. His recent big work was done with KOSHI, palanquin under a budget of $450,000.00, which has become the symbol of Wajima City today.

"When we only have medium size of pens for Maki-e works, we felt we need bigger pens for better Maki-e works, and we therefore, made Mikado for that purpose in several years ago. This pen uses Eye Dropper system. It is 6 3/8” long when the cap closed and diameter of the barrel is 13/16” heavy. The Maki-e on this pen has been very good because of its big space. The nib is size #8 in 18k gold available with F, M, B and Stub." - Danitrio
