Namiki Tradition fountain pens are made with the most extraordinary attention to detail. These pens are created by highly-skilled craftsmen using ancient techniques, and result in truly beautiful pieces of work. And because they are pens, they make an everyday act - in this case, writing - a real pleasure.
The Chinese Phoenix is weightier than others in the range, and the cap is seamlessly constructed and trimmed with gold.
The designs relate to traditional Japanese culture, including dragons, flowers and origami. They are created using 'Hira Maki-e', a technique that uses coloured Urushi and raw lacquer covered in silver and gold powder. Once dry, several layers of Urushi are applied and then polished to a deep, lustrous shine.
The Urushi lacquer is harvested from a type of sumac tree at a very specific time of the year. It's then processed to ensure its durability. The designs are created by an exclusive group of artists - the Kokkokai, or 'Group of the Nation's Light' - who spend many years perfecting their particular technique - and they concentrate on only one technique in their lifetime. Each design is incredibly detailed and involves both the barrel and the screw-on cap.
Created in-house at Namiki, the nibs are made from 14 carat Japanese gold and tipped with iridium.
Supplied in a luxury wooden gift box with a 60ml bottle of black Namiki ink and a converter.
