Kawasemi or Kingfisher. A small bird, hardly 18 cm long with remarkable electric blue feathers and bright orange belly and legs. They prefer ponds or lakes or slow flowing waters where they hunt their prey, sitting on a branch and diving into the water. All stickelbacks are warned

Sailor commissioned Kaga Maki-e Master Ikki Moroiki san to create four limited edition pens within the collection “Taki-to-Shizen” (Waterfalls and nature). Sailor “Taki-no-Kawasemi” (Kingfisher) is the second pen limited to 28 pcs worldwide with 21k nib in M or B.
