Platinum has gained a reputation for creating highly affordable Maki-e style pens which often resemble writing instruments which would cost two or three times as much. The new Fujin Raijin (Wind God and Thunder God) is an excellent example - using hand-applied gold leaf, the Fujin Raijin could easily be mistaken for a pen costing two or three thousand dollars or more. Normally made available with only limited nib choices, we are able to offer this pen with your choice of solid gold 14k nib in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, or Broad. Retail $450, our price $360.
Arriving in late 2014, two new Sailor King of Pen Limited Editions showcase the work of Maki-e artist Wataru Kurotobi. The King of Pen Asa-tsuyu and King of Pen Yu-nami both utilize complex Hakeme-nuri Maki-e technique to create unique motifs inspired by forest and ocean scenes respectively. Just 33 numbered pens in each of the two finishes are being created worldwide.
Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke Collection, the price for each pen starts at $3900 with standard Sailor King of Pen 21k nib.
