The unique artwork is by Maki-e artist Koushu Nishihara, who also created Sailor's celebrated Creatures of the Deep series. This a very special pen in both form and function. Nishihara utilizes resin, egg shell, lacquer, and abalone to bring the King Cobra to life.
At almost 6" capped and with a weight of 39 grams, this is a pen to be reckoned with, and yet one which will fit comfortably in the hand for most users. It is a balanced pen when the cap is removed, as this is where most of the weight resides. The nib size used is the same as that of the Sailor Pro Gear and 1911 Full Size series pens.
Note the detail on the cap. Pieces of egg shell are placed by hand to lend texture and depth to the black resin background. Inlaid abalone creates a heart pattern. Also note the breathtaking portrayal of the King Cobra. With eyes made of abalone to create a ruthless stare, and colorful lacquer portraying the cobra in attack mode, this is a particularly imaginative use of Maki-e technique.
