Sailor originally released the Creatures of the Deep Limited Edition series more than ten years ago. Just 88 numbered pens in each of ten motifs were produced worldwide.

The motif on each Creatures of the Deep pen was designed by noted Maki-e artist Koushu Nishihara, who was born into a family of artists and trained in traditional lacquer ware technique at the Wajima Urushi Lacquer Institute of Art in Ishikawa. Each Creatures of the Deep pen includes a special dark wood presentation box with all original papers and documentation, as well as a polishing cloth, converter, and a now-vintage bottle of Sailor Jentle Ink in the classic non-reservoir style bottle - while we don't recommend use of the ink after ten years, the unopened bottle adds to the collectibility and value of the pen.

As with any pen you purchase from us, the Creatures of the Deep Moray Eel qualifies for our complimentary nib tuning services, which help ensure that your pen will will have writing qualities every bit the equal to its appearance. Sailor 21k solid gold nibs also provide a terrific starting point for many our exclusive nib customizations, which add flair and distinctiveness to your writing by allowing for additional line-width variation on the page.

Sailor originally released the Creatures of the Deep Limited Edition series in 2007. Just 88 numbered pens in each of the ten motifs were produced worldwide. We have had one complete set, #16, kept unopened and untouched during all this time. We are now making each of these last remaining writing instruments available for individual sale.
