The Chinkin Pine Tree is another superb example of Namiki's dedication to producing quality writing instruments which are also wonderful works of Maki-e art. Each pen is hand-finished in exacting and time-intensive chinkin technique at the Namiki workshop in Kanagawa, just south of Tokyo.

Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts optimum pressure and ink flow to your own personal preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the flair and character of your writing on the page. We are an authorized Namiki dealer.

Pine trees, or matsu, are imbued with more than routine significance in Japanese art. Seen as symbols of rebirth, virtue, and longevity, and often used to mark temple boundaries and in previous eras to decorate the armor of samurai warriors, pine trees have a cultural resonance that can be sensed in the lovingly detailed and painstaking realization of the motif seen here.

Each Namiki Chinkin Collection fountain pen is provided with a traditionally styled wooden presentation box. This is a cartridge-converter pen - it fill can using any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the provided reusable converter, and can also use Pilot brand disposable ink cartridges.
