Raden, or abalone shell, is a favorite precious material for use in Maki-e art. But few writing instruments realized using this technique can match the precise beauty of this Namiki Nightline Moonlight. 

The layering of abalone into the black lacquer on this Nightline Moonlight pen conjures up the image of clear moonlight casting its flickering, silver light over a dark rippled lake. As you follow the thick black arcs through the reflecting abalone the colors seem to ripple in the current.


The artist, Shinsai Sakamoto, signs his work in red, below the title in gold. Take a closer look at the kanji, nestled between the abalone waves of moonlight.


The pentagonal Namiki logo appears on the clip as well as on the nib along with a gold Mt. Fuji. This pen comes with Namiki's highest quality converter. It also comes with a bottle of Namiki ink. A nicely designed softwood inner presentation box surrounds this pen.
