Namiki Yukari Maki-e Fountain Pen – Milky Way


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 #10 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.

The Namiki Yukari Royale Vermilion Urushi fountain pen has been produced entirely within our Hiratsuka, Japan workshops, and is of the finest quality lacquer work available in the world. Your pen is crafted with more than 20 processes in Roiro-Urushi lacquer finish. Three months of production time was required to complete this process.

The Yukari Royale Vermilion Urushi fountain pen utilizes a lacquering technique in which multiple layers of Urushi (sap from Japanese lacquer trees) are applied to the pen’s surface, giving it a brilliant, high gloss sheen and highly durable exterior. Namiki’s expert craftsmen have used this technique in fountain pen production since the company’s inception in 1918. In 1925, the process was patented as Namiki’s Lacquer Naito method and we’ve since earned a reputation for producing the finest lacquer fountain pens available.

As beautiful as your pen is to behold, it is also designed to be used. Our precision 18 karat gold nib and superior ink delivery system ensures an exceptionally smooth stroke and clean line. We recommend that you use only Namiki bottled ink to ensure proper, long-term functioning of your fountain pen.

Every Namiki writing instrument is unconditionally guaranteed against failures due to faulty materials or workmanship throughout its life with the original owner.
