 Product Description

Ryosuke Namiki, the founder of Pilot Corporation, realized the need for improving existing pens used for drawing during his tenure as a professor at the Tokyo Merchant Marine College. After making a prototype fountain pen, he formed a partnership with one of his colleagues, Masao Wada and started manufacturing and selling fountain pens in 1918. Pilot/Namiki is known for its quality maki-e pens and the beautiful works of art are available in both its brand. The Maki-e lacquering, a centuries-old technique in which multi-layered patterns are drawn on the barrel and cap with urushi - sap from Japanese lacquer.

This lovely fountain pen is hand painted Togidashi-maki-e lacquering techniques. The design is available with a fine, medium or broad 14 karat gold with rhodium accented nib, assuring long lasting, impeccable writing performance. A gift box with bottled ink completes the attractive presentation. Togidashi technique, a style where the design is painted in lacquer, and gold or silver powder is sprinkled over it; when the lacquer is dry, another coat is applied to the design to fix the powder. Ro-iro-urushi (black lacquer without oil) is then applied over the entire surface, and, after it has dried, it is burnished briefly with charcoal. The final polishing is done with cotton wool soaked with Ki-Urushi (crude Urushi).
