Created by Maki-e artist Yumi Hayashi, the Namiki Yukari Royale Frog is a beautifully realized work of art which is also a highly versatile and practical writing instrument. The pen is provided with your choice of 18k solid gold nib.

Our complimentary nib tuning services ensure that this pen will not just be beautiful to look at, but will also be a superb everyday writer. Namiki 18k nibs also provide an excellent starting point for many of our exclusive nib customizations, which provide added flair and distinctiveness to your writing on the page.
Produced in Namiki's artisanal workshop for Maki-e and Urushi work in Kanagawa on the west coast of Japan, the Yukari Royale Frog is the creation of artist Yumi Hayashi, who also has the distinction of being the first woman hired as a Maki-e artist by Namiki. Raden and gold powder are among the precious materials used to realize the motif. The frog is seen as a symbol of health, longevity, and good health in traditional Japanese folklore, and the design here features no less than three golden frogs in dynamic motion.

The pen utilizes Namiki's convenient cartridge-converter filling system, which allows for the use of either Pilot brand cartridges, or any bottled fountain pen ink when using the provided converter. The high volume Pilot CON-70 converter gives this pen an ink capacity rivaling that of many piston-fillers. An attractive presentation box, complimentary bottle of ink, and all papers add to the collectability of this pen and also make it an exceptional gift item.
