Namiki Yukari Royale Catfish and Gourd
The Namiki Yukari Royale Catfish and Gourd (Hyoutan Namazu) fountain pen has been produced in just 200 numbered pieces worldwide. Noted Maki-e artist Seiki has utilized a variety of techniques, including burnished and raised Togidashi Take and high relief Taka Maki-e, to realize the motif. Precious materials used include both gold and platinum dust. Now sold out at the wholesale level, we have just a very small number of these extraordinary pens still available.

Seiki's interpretation, however, seems to find a peacefulness not seen in most depictions - the catfish swims tranquilly while gourds, which are also traditional symbols of wealth and well-being, float overhead.
At least four different Maki-e techniques have been used in the creation of this pen.
