Celluloid, which has revolutionized the color of camphor shafts for almost 30 years since the latter half of the 1920s, is a nitrate ester made by treating fiber (cellulose) taken from the cotton core (cotton linter) with a mixed acid of nitric acid and sulfuric acid. It is a semi-natural artificial resin that is rare nowadays made by adding camphor to (nitrocellulose).
In the history of fountain pens, we usually made a sheet with a thickness of 3 to 6 mm and wound it to make a shaft, but in the early 1980s we made a custom-made 18 mm thick plate, cut it, and carved it from a prism. I realized something suitable for work.
