Iwata Takumi: A side feed Airbrush inspired by artisans.
Mastering a craft might take a lifetime. Hours of practice and years of study until the hand and the mind become one: until there is no distance between the imagination and the materials. In Japan, such skilled artisans are called Takumi.
Iwata Custom Micron Takumi Side Feed Airbrush has a redesigned, compact body style that makes it exceptionally balanced in the hand. This, combined with a new gravity assisted side feed cup and siphon cut lid improves paint flow, making Takumi remark remarkably responsive. The two-piece 0.24oz / 7ml cup design disassembles for easy cleaning and is adaptable to right and left-handed use.
Experienced airbrush users who demand absolute precision choose Iwata Custom Micron Series airbrushes for extreme detail spraying. What makes Custom Micron special is that every Custom Micron Head System is custom matched and hand-tuned to meet Iwata’s rigorous performance standards for superior atomisation. Replacement Head Systems are tested and tuned to the same standards to ensure that Custom Micron will maintain its precision over time.
One of the benefits of the Iwata Custom Micron Takumi side feed airbrush is that it allows maximum visibility of the spray surface while working. 0.10oz / 3ml cup option sold separately. The ergonomic main lever is comfortable to use and the pre-set handle allows you to set the spray output, which increases your control while reducing finger fatigue. Iwata's spring-steel needle resists breakage and our needle packings are solvent resistant for longevity. If you like to remove the crown cap, you will appreciate Custom Micron's crown cap dock, which stows the cap when not in use.
We include Iwata Lube, which is used to lubricate the head needle and main lever mechanism. Also included is our Iwata Pistol-grip filter, that collects and evacuates moisture build-up, helping to ensure that your Custom Micron receives clean, dry air. Our Iwata Nozzle Spanner is included and may be used to remove the head nozzle, or you may purchase our Iwata Nozzle Wrench to easily remove or tighten your airbrush nozzle without fear of damaging it.
Store your Custom Micron in its durable aluminium storage case. If absolute precision is what you are looking for, Iwata Custom Micron is a one-of-a-kind airbrush experience.
