This Ginko and Maple Leaves Limited Edition pen depicts traditional autumn motifs of Japan. Gold powder and charcoal is applied using Taka Maki-e technique to create the textured surface, while time-intensive Togidashi Maki-e is used for the application of the multiple layers of natural urushi lacquer and the painting of the intricately-detailed motif. Note the raised leaf motif found only in the top quality maki-e. 

Like most Pelikan pens, the M1000 is a piston-filler, able to fill using any bottled fountain pen ink.

The artist's signature appears as gold Kanji (Japanese characters). The end cap is adorned with the Pelikan logo in maki-e (gold sprinkles).


Made available by Pelikan only in Medium, we are able to provide this pen with any of Pelikan's M1000 18k two-tone nibs.

Pelikan has produced only 88 numbered pens worldwide, and we have been able to secure just a small number for our customers. These pens do sell out.
Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics.
