Utilizing painstaking traditional techniques the Nippon Art line pays homage to the legacy of Namiki writing instruments. In using the method of Hari Maki-e, a practice that requires the utmost skill and patience, Namiki has ensured that every writing instrument produced in this line will be a treasure to any who possess them.
Calling to mind an extensive history of traditional Japanese motifs, the Nippon Art Dragon with Cumulus is simultaneously a testament of the dedication and artistry that goes into each Namiki work of art, and an homage to its cultural heritage and its standing as the premiere Japanese name in fine writing instruments. This stunning depiction of a Japanese dragon (ryū) descending magnificently from the clouded vault of the heavens, rendered of course in hand-painted maki-e, is a truly gorgeous effect executed on a remarkable writing instrument.
This Yukari-sized pen has a 14k gold nib in size #10, fills via cartridge/converter (a CON-70 is included) . Each pen takes months to create. This pen will be shipped in a Pilot Namiki Box.
