Outline

I made it for fly fishing enthusiasts. It is a finish that welcomes not only domestic but also international veterans. The appearance of the product is based on tradition, but I used the JOUBOUJIURUSHI(浄法寺漆) from Iwate Prefecture as a painting material. Blank (bone of the rod) was also produced at the workshop in Iwate prefecture. The tone of the rod was tested and decided at the mountain stream of Iwate prefecture. The surface of the rod polished up JOUBOUJIURUSHI(浄法寺漆) has a beautiful jet black luster, it is difficult for scratches and stains to attach, the paint itself has tension, makes the feel of the rod light and sharp. It is a light and strong rod, completely different from industrial products using oil paint.
