Product Description

This incredible “Bamboo and Sparrow,” Yukari maki-e fountain pen features a stunning sparrow motif surrounded by elegant bamboo, painstakingly etched and filled in with gold powder. The symbolism of bamboo is strong and positive, hence the Japanese proverb "The bamboo that bends is stronger than the oak that resists". Represented in pairs, it doubles the luck factor. The sparrow, considered a songbird, brings good times with family or friends. A sparrow also is used in Japanese folklore and artwork to denote a gentle natured, intellectual person. The renowned artisan, Yasuji Sumi, used the unique Chinkin technique to create this design. Each pen is truly a masterpiece. Remarkable skill and impeccable craftsmanship bring the sparrow and bamboo to life through the complex patterns of carved dots and lines that are illuminated with gold powder. Since Chinkin is a carving technique, there is no room for mistakes. Every single carve is a true challenge in the sense of the word. The result is breathtaking. The Yukari Chinkin Bamboo and Sparrow is available with a #10 18 karat gold nib in Fine, Medium, or Broad.

The Namiki Chinkin is similar in size with the Yukari has a #10 18k gold nib. It fills via Pilot/Namiki cartridge/converter. You will find one black Namiki cartridge, one CON-70 converter and a blue ink bottle included. Finally, it is packaged in a velvet-lined traditional Oriental wooden box.
