Hand-wrought sterling silver enhanced with beautifully etched traditional Japanese designs lend elegance and grace to each piece in Namiki's Sterling Collection. The simplicity of the pen's design is contrasted against the opulence of the precious material from which it is crafted, sterling silver being a decadent while still restrained precious metal. The Hawk motif is beautifully applied, adding both depth and nuance to the otherwise gleaming, uninterrupted surface. The hawk (鷹 or "taka") holds a significant symbolic meaning. As a skilled hunter and powerful bird of prey, the hawk represents various positive attributes, including strength, speed, and keenness of vision. Here are some aspects of the hawk's symbolism in Japanese culture:
