Namiki Yukari Kabuto Limited Edition
The work of celebrated Maki-e artist Michifumi Kawaguchi, the new Namiki Yukari Kabuto Limited Edition fountain pen offers a striking combination of martial and floral themes in its beautifully realized motif. We have acquired for our customers a very small number of these pens, which have been produced in just 170 numbered pieces, of which only 40 are reaching North America. Available with your choice of 18k solid gold nib in Fine or Medium, our sale price for this pen is $2500.
Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Hichikiri Whistle
Nakaya's string-wrapped pens have become very popular with pen aficionados, and the new Piccolo Cigar Hichikiri Whistle represents perhaps their most creative use yet of this technique. Hand-wound string and Urushi lacquer over ebonite emulate the appearance of a traditional double-reed Japanese flute. Each pen takes close to a year to produce. We have just one Piccolo Cigar Hichikiri Whistle currently in stock - our price $1150.
Pelikan Souverän M600 Pink
Now in stock, the new Pelikan Souverän M600 Pink (also called the M600 Pink Ladies in some markets) adds a fanciful color palette to the venerable Souverän line. 24k gold-plated trim accents the bright pink stripes, and the pen ships in a distinctive ribboned presentation box, making this a wonderful gift choice for the holiday season and beyond.
Provided with your choice of 14k solid gold two-tone M600 nib unit in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, or Broad, this pen retails for $625, with our price $500.

Just 1977 individually numbered pens have been produced for each character, and each includes a unique presentation box, pen stand, certificate of authenticity, and collector's book.
Each pen is equipped with a solid gold 18k gold nib in your choice of Fine or Medium, and two starter ink cartridges and a converter for use with bottled ink are also included. We have secured a small number of these pens for our customers - once they are gone, there will be no more. Our price $575 per pen.
