Each year, Pelikan releases a special limited edition Maki-e pen that is a unique fusion of German pen engineering with Japanese traditional art. This year's release, the Maki-e Five Lucky Bats, renders homage to a motif that is traditionally associated with wealth and good fortune in Japanese art - even the word for bat, komori, can be written in characters meaning "a lot of happiness."

The bats here have been realized in a variety of advanced Maki-e techniques, which in addition to the use of Taka-Maki-e and Togidashi-Maki-e also include the utilization of precious materials such as raden shell and kirigane gold flake. Five golden four-leaf clovers are also depicted, and the artist's signature and edition numbers are also realized in Maki-e.

Each pen ships in a special Paulownia softwood presentation box which adds to the pen's value and collectibility. Pelikan Maki-e limited editions frequently sell out very quickly, and we strongly suggest ordering as soon as possible if you want to be sure of securing one for yourself or as a very special gift item.

Our complimentary nib tuning assures that your Pelikan Maki-e pen will have writing qualities equal to its beautiful appearance, and our optional nib customizations can add to the character and distinctiveness of your writing on the page.
