Sailor 1911 Standard Kaga-Maki-e Fountain Pen - Fuji, Medium Nib

The Sailor 1911 Standard Kaga-Maki-e Fountain Pen with the Fuji design features a 14k gold medium nib with 24k gold plated trim. The rich black resin body of each Sailor 1911 Maki-e pen creates an elegant canvas on which the delicate design comes to life. Art on this fountain pen is created by the fourth-generation Kaga Maki-e artist, Kosen Ohshita. Mount Fuji is shown depicted on the cap, with sailboats on the barrel. It comes in a small softwood box with a proprietary Sailor piston converter for use with bottled ink, two extra cartridges and all paperwork.

Maki-e is a highly respected traditional Japanese hand-applied decoration process with more than 1500 years of history. It is regarded as the ultimate Japanese decorative craft on many different materials. Precious materials such as Gold, Silver, Enamel, Abalone shell (mother of pearl) etc. are combined and applied by hand by specialized accredited Maki-e artists, with traditional Urushi lacquers to represent a variety of traditional Japanese art, and culture. These very traditional Kaga-Maki-e techniques can only be applied by truly experienced Japanese craftsman who have historical family skills and pride, who have trained for many years to learn such traditional art forms and true craftsmanship.
