The introduction each year of a new Namiki Emperor Limited Edition is eagerly anticipated by those pen users and collectors devoted to the most exceptional works of high end Maki-e art. The release for 2019, the Shoki, more than fulfills expectations with its masterful use of Taka, Togidashi, and Shishiai Maki-e techniques by renowned artist and Kokkokai Collective member Yutaka Sato.

Shoki, also known as Zhong Kui, is a Chinese deity associated with protection from evil spirits and also known as a guardian of treasured goods. He is often associated with the Five Bats of Good Fortune, which is itself the subject of this year's Five Bats Limited Edition Maki-e pen from Pelikan.

More than just an exceptional work of art in its own right, the Emperor Shoki fountain pen can also be a reliable and versatile everyday writing instrument. The eyedropper fill system allows for a very generous ink capacity, and the pen is equipped with your choice of 18k solid gold nib. A matching lacquered presentation box including a special ink bottle and limited edition number plate add to the pen's value and collectibility.

Our complimentary nib tuning services adjust pressure and ink flow to your preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character of your writing on the page, but if you are collector who would prefer to receive the pen without tuning or customizations, just indicate this in your notes during the check-out process. We are an authorized Namiki dealer.
