BENZAITEN - Goddess of arts and knowledge - is the only woman among these seven gods and represents the Japanese version of the Hindu deity Saraswati, the goddess of water and sea. Today she is revered as the goddess of wisdom and is said to represent virtue in marriage. The body of the pen is decorated with an image of Benzaiten playing the biwa (a traditional Japanese lute) while on the cap an iridescent wave in raden (mother-of-pearl chips) recalls her link to water. Created by artist Yumi.

The 100th anniversary or centenary of the Namiki group is cause for a special celebration. The company mobilised its famous Kokkokai craftsmen to create exceptional limited editions inspired by themes dear to its history and Japanese culture: sea, good fortune and Mount Fuji. It also serves as an homage to its founders Ryosuke Namiki and Masao Wada, two marine engineers united by their native land and passion of navigation.
