KING OF PENS
- (Retail Price $0.00SGD)
Sailor Bespoke’s 2nd Edition release in the Iro-Miyabi Collection, ‘Miyabi-nuri,’ features historical colors of nobility. The delicate patterns on each of these pens are created with the expressive application of lacquers using a silk cloth. The patterns that result are soft, elegant, and refined with colors that precisely complement one another. The subtle shimmer to these designs is achieved by the delicate sprinkling of pure gold and silver powders to their surface.
These colors have achieved historical significance, and have been around for many millennia. Ran-Peki is a jasper blue that has been of importance in Shintoism since ancient times, followed by the deep madder red of Fukaki-Ake, a color that has been associated with nobility since the Asuka period. The Edo period brought us the navy blue and lapis lazuli colors of Kon-Ruri, while the stylish brown of Bun-Jin-Cha was recognized during the mid-Meiji period.
This sophisticated brown lacquered fountain pen is made on an ebonite base in the King of Pen size, and features the famously smooth oversized 21K bi-color gold nib for a seamless, unparalleled writing experience.
The paulownia box supplied with this fountain pen is extremely suitable for the storage of lacquer products. It is complimented by the addition of a Sanada-strap which is commonly used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Included inside is a cleaning cloth, 2 ink cartridges, and an instruction manual. An ink converter is installed in the pen.
