The Taka ni Shiki-Natsu fountain pen is a masterpiece from Sailor and available exclusively from PenGallery. Also known as the "Summer Hawk", it showcases the lifelike Chinkin-bori Maki-e artistry of Japan. First created in ebonite which is encased in durable urushi lacquer, the pen is transformed into a work of art with the addition of the Summer Hawk, executed flawlessly with the Chinkin-bori Maki-e technique. Indeed no error must occur during this process as the Hawk is directly hand-carved into the urushi and subsequently filled with precious gold leaf and dust. Silver dust and color urushi is also used. The nib is 21K solid gold.
Available as a very rare limited edition of 25 pieces worldwide, it is a wonderful work of Japanese artistry that will fit in stunningly into any valuable pen collection. Each work of art is signed personally by the artist, and delivered in a stunning lacquer box with the same Chinkin Maki-e artwork.
