These are the Special Limited Edition of the Sailor
Four Seasons of the Mount Fuji. Each one is individually numbered. They are available
in the four piece collection or individually.
|The Four Seasons of Mount Fuji are painted on the King
of Pen ebonite body . We had anticipated this turn of events when all the
trim was removed from the King of Pen. This gives the artist a larger field on
which to work. There are only 50 pieces of each pen throughout the world. Each
is hand painted in Kaga Maki-e by Ishyu Tamura, and is available with 21K gold
Nagahara Cross Point nib. We can provide and/or customize any of the nibs that
are available for this King of Pen. For an understanding of the size and other
specifications for this pen please visit our Pen
Measurements Page and look for the Sailor King of Pen.
Below is a
brief description of each of the pens.
"Ouka-Fuji" This design depicts the famous Cherry blossom (Sakura)
against the green Spring freshness of Mt. Fuji's slopes.
"Ryu-en -Fuji" This design shows the darting swallows and the
blue willow trees in full leaf with cascading streams on a golden landscape.
|Fall "Kouyou- Fuji" This picture
captures the powerful colors of the Autumn showing flame red maple leaves against
the mountain scape.
Fuji" This story depicts the stark Winter landscape with the snow
speckled pine trees with the flying cranes over the mountain landscape.
The Togi Cross nib, seen below and to the left is hand
made. In the tradition of Sailor custom nibs, this one writes fine when held vertically
and very broad when held at a low angle. The cross strokes are even broader than
the vertical strokes. It delivers a fluid and juicy ink flow, somewhat like a
fine sumi-e brush.
This nib represents the highest level of hand craftsmanship
in nib making today.
Notice the stacked tines. They create four different
writing surfaces and more than twice the amount of space for ink to flow to the
pen is signed and numbered by master Maki-e artist Ishyu Tamura.
is important to note that this is the first of the limited edition pens on the
King of Pen body. Often, the first issue, especially when it is released in such
small numbers, goes on to become very collectible. We are taking orders now. Note
that only 50 sets will be produced - production time for each set once ordered is approximately seven months.
Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke collection, the price for this set of four pens is $30,900
