Made of hand-fashioned sterling silver, Pilot Sterling Silver Collection fountain pens, formerly Namiki Sterling Silver Collection fountain pens, offer streamlined beauty at a surprisingly reasonable price. Engraved motifs accent the attractive surface of these pens, which are available with your choice of 18k solid gold rhodium-plated inlaid nib.

The Pilot Sterling Collection Turtle fountain pen, features one of the most atmospheric motifs seen in this series of exceptional writing instruments. Hand engraving on sterling silver depicts swimming turtles in a moonlit riparian scene.

The Pilot Sterling Collection Turtle fountain pen is hand-made from sterling silver.

The Pilot Sterling Collection Turtle fountain pen also features lush wildlife that surrounds the turtles as they swim playfully in the river.

The trail or plume following the turtles is the subject of some debate. While it can be interpreted as water flowing in the turtles' wake, an alternate explanation is that the turtles have trains of seaweed growing on their backs, seen as symbols of longevity and happiness.

Majestic bamboo has been painstakingly etched onto the cap of this pen. A silver oxide patina is then carefully applied to create depth and shading.

In Japan, bamboo is often revered as a symbolism of prosperity, purity, and innocence.
