Namiki Emperor Owl Now In Stock

Blog

Namiki's limited edition Maki-e pens are very much in the news, with the much anticipated Seven Gods pens expected to arrive any day now. But Namiki's standard Maki-e pens, every bit as hand-made and hand-finished as the limited editions, are also exceptional works of art and outstanding writing instruments in their own right.

One great example is the Namiki Emperor Owl, which we once again have in stock after an absence of several months. Eggshell, raden, and gold and silver powders are among the precious materials used to realize the beautifully evocative motif. Each signed pen requires up to a year or more to be produced by a member of the prestigious Kokkokai Collective.

Not just an exceptional art piece in its own right, the Emperor Owl is also an outstanding writing instrument with a generous ink capacity thanks to its eyedropper-fill system. Our complimentary nib tuning adjusts pressure and ink flow to your own personal preferences, and the Namiki 18k solid gold nib provides an excellent starting point for our exclusive nib customizations. We are an authorized Namiki dealer.
