Pen Venture brings forward a new project with Leonardo Officina Italiana, the 4th in line for 2022, a collaboration that resulted in an exclusive model - Urushi Essenza.

With a minimalist version body shape that was coated in multiple urushi layes by Teodor Oneata (PenTeo), a Romanian artist established in the Czech Republic, this time we opted for a no clip fountain pen (we offer clips only on demand - check our video overview for an example, and mention in order notes if you want the clip).

We chose to work with Teo not only because of his talent and his pen making craftsmanship, but also his knowledge in applying the urushi coating. Our choice for the technique used on this model is Aka-Tamenuri, a beautiful red composition that, just like water in a pond, at the fountain pens edges it reflects more light, revealing a lighter red. 

The depth of the red color and the quality of the lacquer finishing make this fountain pen one of our best accomplishments after nine months of work, so we chose a name to match it - Essenza - our passion and our drive to accomplish our goals, and make our dreams come true.

Urushi Essenza comes with all the qualities already known from Leonardo Officina Italiana in a luxurious and dynamic package - a high quality Japanese ebonite body, a piston filling system that you can disassemble with the piston tool, a size #8, 14k Gold nib, and a heat set ebonite feeder in red to match the color of the fountain pen. 

A limited edition of only 13 pieces + 1 Artist Proof summing up to 14 writing instruments, this collection is presented in a handmade oak box, created by a talented local woodworker, naturally died with vinegar to preserve the beauty of the wood texture.
