Sailor Maki-e Floating Fans
Fountain Pen
 
Sailor Resin Maki-e  Floating Fans Nibs.com

A symbol of culture in Japan, the fan is used for more than just creating a cooling breeze. Made from paper and bamboo, these fragile objects are nonetheless the "canvas" for intensive design. This motif has been used here in conjunction with water as part of a story.

Sailor Maki-e Floating Fans Fountain Pen

The design represents the "Three Boats" ceremony, which takes place annually on the outskirts of Kyoto. The ceremony involves costumed Japanese ladies throwing fans into the stream and watching them float away, a scene that recalls the Emperor and his court on the Oi river during the Heian period (794-1185). It celebrates music, poetry and beautiful spectacle.

Sailor Maki-e Floating Fans Fountain Pen

This specially commissioned pen is handcrafted in traditional Japanese maki-e by Mr. Kosen Oshita.

This pen is based on the full size 1911 model with the same size gripping section, 21K nib, and overall dimensions.

We have the full range of available Sailor 21K nibs: EF, F, MF, M, B, Zoom and Music. (The nib at left is the Sailor Extra-Fine, offering the writer an extremely fine writing and expressive tool. This is one of the finest extra-fine nibs on the market.)

The Music nib is similar to a stub with considerable line width variation. It is ideal for customization to cursive italic or formal italic for calligraphic writing.

Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke Collection.
