Sailor ebonite Syokei

Written by Catherine on Friday 10 November 2023 in Japanese pens

We are expecting a beautiful Sailor Syokei in Japanese ebonite. Syokei means Admiration. The body color is inspired by the Ukiyo-e print art 'Tsurebiki,' a masterpiece by Harunobu Suzuki, known for his beautiful doll-like portrayal of people in his ukiyo-e woodblock print art. He mixed chalk to express neutral colors, giving his art a lyrical and particular touch. By admiring 'Tsurebiki', Sailor brought Harunobu Suzuki's style to life in the Syokei's color theme by lavishing layers of colored ebonite. Reserve yours, we have more then one coming in! Expected December '23.

Written by Catherine on Wednesday 21 June 2023 in Japanese pens

The Pelikan Souverän M1000 Red Infinity limited edition is the next pen in the raden saga. It is made with particles from the Australian abalone shell, and the greenish hues used for this precious fountain pen are scarce. The surface of the M1000 is painted in a red urushi coating and sprinkled with silver powder to give it a sparkling appearance. The rectangular abalone stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel. Finally, after months of elaborate work, the artist signs each fountain pen using the highly valued Maki-e technique.
