This Namiki Emperor maki-e fountain pen was created by maki-e artisan Shinsai in Japan. It features the Togidashi-Taka Maki-e technique (burnished-raised maki-e), depicting the Japanese author Murasaki Shikibu. This fountain pen has a 18k gold nib in the massive #50 size. The large capacity barrel fills with ink via eyedropper, and the pen comes packaged in a wooden box with a bottle of ink. Each pen takes months to create.

The Emperor Collection is Namiki's highest ranking series. The body is shaped with ebonite, featuring the "Togidashi-Taka Maki-e (Burnished-Raised Maki-e)" technique, where high skills are necessary. As these pens are truly one-of-a-kind pieces of art, they are warrantied for life by Namiki.

Please allow us up to several extra days for shipping of this pen. Please also note we are unable to accept a return of this pen for any reason once it has been used with ink. Please thoroughly inspect and dry test the pen before use.
