Pilot-Namiki 100th Anniversary Seven Gods Limited Editions


Arriving in March 2019 and now available for pre-order, the Namiki Yukari Seven Gods pens are the last and perhaps most highly anticipated of all the limited editions created in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Pilot-Namiki. The previous two anniversary pens, the Emperor Fuji and the Fuji Meiji-Maru, sold out in pre-sales prior to even being released, and demand for the Seven Gods series is expected to be as strong or stronger.

Each pen depicts one of the Japanese Seven Gods of Good Fortune - Benzai-ten, Bishamon-ten, Daikoku-ten, Ebisu, Fuku-rokuju, Hotei-son, and Juro-jin - and is hand-finished by an individual master Maki-e artist from the famous Kokkokai Collective utilizing meticulous and time-intensive Togidashi-Taka Maki-e technique.

Not just beautiful works of Maki-e art in their own right, the Yukari Seven Gods pens can also serve as superb everyday writing instruments, especially when tuned for your individual writing preferences in our workshop. Our exclusive nib customizations are also available, which can give your writing on the page a beauty and distinctiveness equal to that of these exceptional fountain pens.

Each pen ships in a wooden bespoke presentation box which includes all papers, the Maki-e artist's signature card, and a special pen pouch, as well as bottled ink in a limited edition color matching the pen. An ink converter, ink cartridges, and serial number plate are also included. We are an authorized Namiki dealer.

Demand for these pens is expected to be very strong, and we strongly suggest pre-ordering - you will not be charged until your pen arrives here and is ready to ship to you. We have secured just a very small number of each pen, and in the event that demand exceeds our allocation, orders for individual pens will be fulfilled in the order originally received.
