Jin Shin - Radiant Dragon
Limited Edition Fountain Pen
The year 2012 on the Western calendar is also Jin-shin, the 29th year of the 60th sixty year cycle in the Chinese traditional calendar. In honor of this event, Platinum Pens is producing a special limited edition fountain pen, Maki-e Black Dragon in the Dark.
The dragon depiction is gloss black on matte black, thus the Dragon in the Dark. No picture can do the pen full justice, but note the way the gloss depiction of the Dragon rises in low relief over the main surface of the cap and barrel.
In honor of this anniversary year, which comes just once every sixty years, Platinum Pen is producing a limited number in just 150 pieces of the Jin-shin Black Dragon in the Dark fountain pen. The image of the dragon rising to the sky is represented on the fountain pen in Maki-e technique.
The presentation box is tight fitting wood stained black on black and is accompanied by a black kimono to hold the Dragon in the Dark securely.
