Arriving in October 2016, the new Namiki Emperor Maneki-neko Limited Edition is being produced in just 99 numbered pieces worldwide. It is provided with a Namiki #50 18k solid gold two-tone nib in your choice of Fine, Medium or Broad.
This is a hand-turned ebonite body pen utilizing an eyedropper filling system and hand-finished in Taka Maki-e and Togidashi Maki-e techniques by noted artist Masaru Hayashi, a master in the field.
This is our first preview of the new Namiki Emperor Limited Edition for 2016 – the Maneki-neko, or Beckoning Cat, a traditional symbol of prosperity and good fortune.
As befits a symbol of prosperity, the Maneki-neko is depicted here amid representations of coins and sacks of money. Ample use has been made of gold leaf in the Maki-e process.
The pen ships in a handcrafted wooden presentation box which includes all papers and a special themed ink bottle.
