This Namiki Yukari Milky Way maki-e fountain pen was released in November 2016 by maki-e artisan Michifumi in Japan. It features the Togidashi Maki-e technique (burnished maki-e) and Raden techniques, depicting a sparkling cosmic galaxy scene. The pen has an 18k gold nib in size #10, fills via cartridge/converter (a CON-70 is included), and comes packaged in a wooden box with a bottle of ink.
The Yukari Collection vividly expresses the nature of the four seasons, which the Japanese have been familiar with since ancient times, by combining designs with various techniques such as Togidashi-Taka Maki-e (Burnished-Raised Maki-e) and Raden (Mother-of-Pearl). While being a size that can be carried and used every day, it harbors Japanese beauty down to the finest detail.
As these pens are truly one-of-a-kind pieces of art, they are warrantied for life by Namiki.
Each pen is fitted with an 18 karat gold nib tuned by the masters at Namiki, assuring long lasting, impeccable writing performance. The large #20 size nib is available in fine, medium, or broad widths. A traditional Oriental wood gift box with bottled ink completes the attractive presentation.
The Namiki Yukari comes with a con-70 converter, a cartridge, and a bottle of Namiki blue ink.
