Product Description

The Platinum Procyon, named after the brightest star in the constellation of Canis Minor. The pen employs Platinums famous “Slip-and-Seal” mechanism which keeps the ink from drying out in the pen for up to a year! This pen also features a nib design as well as feed which allows you to use all the ink in a bottle.

Observe the history and traditions of Japan with this finely decorated pen. Featuring a beautiful silk-screened design inspired by Japan's natural scenery and traditional maki-e artwork. "Maki-e" is a combination of the Japanese words for "sprinkle" and "paint", referring to the technique of lacquering a surface with detailed images and metallic powders.

The “Showa Sanshoku (three colors of Showa),” “Taisho Sanshoku (three colors of Taisho)” and “Kohaku (red and white),” the popular varieties of Nishikigoi carps, are illustrated over the famous water pattern of Ogata Korin. Legend has it that carps can transform into a mighty dragon by swimming upstream against the riverʼs strong current and leaping the “dragon gate.” Therefore, the image of a carp jumping over the gate is considered a symbol of success.
