The only one of the Seven Gods deities to have originated in Japan itself, Ebisu was originally a fishing god and evolved into a more general deity of happiness, wealth, and prosperity. The name is also familiar to many westerners as a district in the Shibuya ward in Tokyo, and Ebisu is also a frequently used name for restaurants and taverns.
The motif on the Namiki Yukari Ebisu Limited Edition re-imagines a traditional image of Ebisu with a fukuzasa bamboo stalk, believed to bring good fortune in business. In his left hand he holds a red snapper, and in his right a fishing rod. Each pen is hand-painted by noted Maki-e artist Hideki Furuhara, whose signature is Shotaku.
Besides being a notable work of highly collectible Maki-e art in its own right, the Namiki Yukari Ebisu is also a versatile and highly practical writing instrument - equipped with a solid gold nib, it can fill with any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the provided converter, and can also use Pilot brand disposable ink cartridges.
Our complimentary nib tuning services adjust optimum pressure and ink flow to your own personal preferences, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character and distinctiveness of your writing on the page. Collectors who wish to receive the pen unadjusted can indicate this in your notes during checkout.
Each pen comes in a bespoke wooden presentation box which includes a bottle of Pilot Iroshizuku Ebisu Limited Edition ink, as well as a box of ink cartridges. The lid of the presentation box features a laser engraving depicting Mt.Fuji and a treasure ship carrying the gods of good fortune. We are an authorized Namiki dealer.
