The Namiki Emperor Owl fountain pen pays homage to this symbol of wisdom, luck, blessing and success in japanese culture. With a design both stunning and restrained, this is a noteworthy addition to the Emperor series. As always, it provides the perfect canvas for detailed, hand finished maki-e design.
The Namiki Emperor series highly revered by pen connoisseurs for its high-end maki-e technique and the Owl showcases this beautifully. Ebonite serves as the base material and the artist uses Rankaku maki-e to handcraft the two Owls using pieces of quail eggs. Raden (mother of pearl) is inlaid to highlight the Owl's gleaming eyes. A layer of clear urushi lacquer protects the surface of the pen and adds a lustrous polish.
There are a few other Namiki pens made in the Owl motif; the limited edition Namiki Owl Limited Edition and Namiki Yukari Royal Chinkin Owl pen
are good examples.
