Sailor Takenuri Commemorative Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Sailor Takenuri Commemorative Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Nobuyoshi Nagahara, best known for the Sailor Specialty Nibs which bear his name, retired from the Sailor Pen Company in 2012 after sixty-four years as a master nib maker. In honor of his retirement, Sailor has produced the Takenuri Commemorative Limited Edition Fountain Pen in an edition of just 600 pieces worldwide.

Sailor Takenuri Commemorative Limited Edition Fountain Pen

The design of this pen is based on the hand-crafted bamboo Susutake pen for which Nagahara-san has also become so well known. Unlike the Susutake, which is crafted from actual bamboo, this pen utilizes numerous layers of urushi lacquer over a solid pen body to create the appearance of natural bamboo.

This painstaking and time intensive Takenuri technique is a traditional Japanese art form with a centuries-long history. Thirty-five different steps are required to achieve the amazing trompe l'œil effect of the finished surface.
The pen is the same size and has the same converter-cartridge filling mechanism as the regular full-size 1911. It comes in a small softwood box with two extra cartridges and documentation.

Of the 600 pens produced, only nine are being made available in North America. The limited edition number can be found on the bottom of the barrel of each pen.

Each Takenuri pen is elegantly packaged in a gold foil presentation box with kanji lettering and accompanying documentation, along with an attractive grey and gold pen kimono. The 21k Naginata Medium-Fine nib is specially engraved for this edition.
 

We have been able to secure a very limited number of these pens for our customers – once they are gone, there will be no more.

Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke collection, the price of this pen is $1200 - SOLD OUT
