The KAKEJIKU 掛軸 Pendant
The phrase kakejiku (hung scroll) is used interchangeably with kakemono (hanging thing) to describe the traditional Japanese wall decoration used to display art or calligraphy. Primarily displayed in the tokonoma alcove of a Japanese home, it was also common to see them placed in dojo training locations.
With our pendant, we pay homage to one of the most essential aspects of the kakejiku - the fact that is that it is not intended to be displayed permanently. Just like in choosing a piece of jewelry, one of the greatest pleasures of the kakejiku lies in careful selection of a suitable piece that depends upon the guests, occasion, and season.
Dimensions : 1 inch x 1 inch x 0.1 inch
Custom engraving is also available for those who wish to personalize their pendants to their tastes. Simply select the "custom engraving" option, and send us an image of your design and order number to firstname.lastname@example.org
As the smith does not mix chromium into the metal, your KAKEJIKU pendant should be kept away from water. We have applied a layer of lacquer to give the pendant a measure of water resistance, but it is always better to be safe than sorry! As this layer will eventually wear off over the course of normal wear, it is highly recommended to replace it with a jewelry sealant (or an alternative) to protect the finishing of the pendant and maintain its water resistance.
Due to popular demand, we now offer a stainless clad variant of our KAKEJIKU pendant! The metals used in the forging of this piece are of a lower carbon content with a limited chromium mix in order to provide greatly increased resistance to water based corrosion. Please note that this metal is not fully stainless, and thus should not be left exposed to water for extended periods of time.
