Become prisoner to the amazingly stunning and brilliant Made in Japan Laurett's Fountain Brush Pen

Maruyasu Seiki

We are Maruyasu-seiki Manufacturing Company. We are the makers behind the Laurett’s Brand, a brand that uses world class processing techniques to create unrivalled products. We look to use delicate processing techniques famed in many “made in Japan” products, to create charmingly beautiful products that we can happily and proudly broadcast to the world. 

 

The charms of writing with a brush pen

 

The Japanese Fountain Brush Pen is much like a fountain pen, in that you can change out the ink cartridge and basically use it forever, as well as being like a ball pen and being usable for informal note taking and so on.

Being able to used to sign your name in formal situations is a given, but you can also take it out to write quick letters or memos without needing to set up anything. You can also use it as a simple brush to draw illustrations or practice Japanese calligraphy!

You are only held back by your imagination with the styles of writing and drawing you do with this pen, so let it help you to meet a whole new world of calligraphy and illustration!
 

Another key point is that by adjusting the force used on the pen, you can create large or super thin strokes! You aren’t limited to a single size meaning that you can create amazing masterpieces just with the one pen!

 

 

 

 

 

Since our founding, we have created items that use knurling that is found in high class cars, and uses material found on planes, which culminate in beautiful pieces of craftsmanship. Products from the Laurett's brand use an extra shine milling that is used on dials found in high class cars. We have since our founding used our knowhow and techniques to bring the best quality goods possible. From there we feel we make goods that are stylish. 

This knurling process is used on a lot of dials that require precision, as the dials are easier to grip with the rutted edges. They also look stylish which is another plus! 

When it comes to knurling there are two main types, knurl cutting or knurl rolling. Rolling tends to be cheaper and quicker, but the type that we use for Laurett's goods is cutting, which creates more beautiful knurling. 

What's more, the knurling process that we use for Laurett's goods is even more time consuming that normal cutting, as we cut each line one by one carefully. We want to convey this beauty of the knurling pattern, and by doing this method, we can increase the shine of the edges and just by looking at it, you can think that it is beautiful. We have been refining this method for over 50 years since our founding. 

The art of making this type of pen, from the beautiful knurling process, the stealth cap, is all thanks to this time taken to perfect our skill. 

 

 

 

The cap on the pen has now thread but can be easily capped. This is a speciality that we use to create the cap of the pen, the Stealth Cap. 

 

 

This means that we are able to create an even more beautiful design, while also at the same time allowing you to use the cap on the tail of the pen! 

The parts that we use are all parts that have been whittled down. They are the same material, such as duralumin and titanium that is used to create planes, due to their durability and being lightweight.  It means that you are able to have superior control over the brush while also being light.

 

When you touch the pen you may think, "It's metal, but it feels soft and warm". This feeling is created with the help of the depth from using precision cutting methods.

 

The tip of the brush uses very rare high quality weasel hair. It has the perfect elasticity, as well as is perfectly sharp, to give it a completely consistent feel that is necessary for these types of brushes.

 

 

We want to bring a piece of Japaneseism to the project, and so with that in mind, we have created a urushi capped model of the Laurett’s Fountain Brush Pen!

 

For this project we have created a new cap for our normally simple pens! Using urushi we have created a unique flourish to the cap!

Urushi lacquer has been used for centuries and for many foreigners, it is quintessentially Japanese! 

When it comes to urushi, many know about the beautifully deep blacks or the shining scarlets, but for this project, we have collaborated and used a clear urushi lacquer to help the metalwork shine! This means that the cap enjoys a calming shine and brilliant amber colour that shows the best of both worlds. Japanese urushi has been used since time immemorial and collaborating with it in this way is a unique opportunity. We hope you feel the Japanese culture come through with this cap

※The Urushi cap is paired with the Silver bodied Fountain Brush Pen!

※This cap is only available with the Fountain Brush Pen

 

We know that some of you want to try out our original Fountain pens, so we have also added them as a return! With beautiful carved notches that gives it a dynamic feel to hold, this is a pen that is to behold when it comes to writing. The parts used are mainly duralumin and brass. A pen that has complete perfect balance. The pen nib is 14 karat gold, with two different colours being available, Lunatic Silver and Treasure Gold. The pen is also both cartridge and converter. 

Take this chance to get one of our most treasured pieces of writing instruments!

The manufacturing process that is a staple in Laurett’s products is the notched surface or knurling found on high class car dials and so on, which are created with high attention to detail and create a large impact on you when you see them.

The word laurett comes from the French word that describes this process and we have taken it as our brand name. The word is said to have come from the jaggedness found on laurel leaves and wreaths.

These laurel wreaths are known all over the world as being a symbol of winning and glory, and that is one of our aims, to find glory in making exquisite products that show of the intricate detail that goes into making them, and therefore making the users happy and fulfilled!

Craftsmanship isn’t manufacturing.

When it comes to the manufacturing industry we think that more creativity is necessary, and until now, we have made things to how we have been told, but no more, we want to make goods and services that makes people around the world excited to see.

With this in mind, the Laurett’s brand was founded.

With this project, we hope to change your mindset of Japan equalling traditional Japanese patterns and so on, and instead instil in you a sense that made in Japan equals quality, and precision.

We hope that the Fountain Brush Pen and the Fountain Pen which we painstakingly create will be able to bring an extra piece of special happiness to your life!
