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.
A very elegant design, principally decorated by raden (an inlay technique using mother-of-pearl shell). This Namiki Yukari Nightline Raden uses strips of abalone shell together with Gold dust Maki-e to create a nighttime skyline scene. This Namiki maki-e fountain pen was created by maki-e artists Shinsai and Yumi in Japan. It features the Raden and the Togidashi Maki-e technique (burnished maki-e). The pentagonal Namiki logo appears on the clip as well as on the nib along with a gold Mt. Fuji. The pen has a Medium (M) 18kt gold nib, fills via cartridge/converter (a CON-70 is included), and comes packaged in a wooden box with a bottle of ink.
