This Namiki Yukari Shooting Star maki-e fountain pen was released in November 2016 by maki-e artisan Misa in Japan. It features the Togidashi maki-e technique (burnished maki-e) and Raden, depicting a sparkling cosmic scene with shooting stars. The pen has an 18k gold nib in size #10, fills via cartridge/converter (a CON-70 is included), and comes packaged in a wooden box with a bottle of ink.
The Yukari collection vividly expresses the nature of the four seasons, which the Japanese have been familiar with since ancient times, by combining designs with various techniques such as Togidashi-Taka maki-e (burnished-raised maki-e) and Raden (Mother-of-Pearl). While being a size that can be carried and used every day, it harbors Japanese beauty down to the finest detail.
