With its ornate design set against a rich black backdrop, the Namiki Nippon Art Chinese Phoenix pays homage to this special bird. Known to the Chinese as Feng Huang, the phoenix symbolizes virtue, grace and prosperity. The phoenix also represents the union of opposites, yin and yang, both male and female.

Unlike the western phoenix, the Chinese phoenix is not born again from its ashes. It represents the light of the sun and the moon and is the bird of the southern sky. Its song is said to have been the basis of the five cardinal notes of Chinese melody and one of the four creatures that created the world.

This is a slender and lightweight writing instrument that will fit comfortably in most hands.

Nippon Art pens are supplied with the larger size CON-70 converter, giving these pens an ink capacity rivaling that of many piston-fillers.

This fountain pen has an elegant simple shape, and a captivating design. 


The Namiki #10 solid gold 14k nib is inscribed with the silhouette of Mt. Fuji as well as the Namiki pentagon logo. Namiki 14k gold nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.


Note the artist's signature in calligraphic kanji script. The Kokkokai artisan group is a Maki-e collective with roots going back to the 1930s.

The Namiki Nippon Art Chinese Phoenix fountain pen arrives in a traditional softwood gift box lined with crimson velvet and comes with outer box and papers.
