The Sailor King of Pen Yu-nami fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with a 21k solid gold King of Pen nib. Also available at additional cost with Sailor's King of Pen specialty nibs.

The King of Pen is well-known as Sailor's largest fountain pen, and is comparable in size to the Montblanc 149. The King of Pen provides an ideal canvas for detailed artwork and complex Maki-e techniques. Available in only 33 numbered pieces worldwide, we have managed to secure a small number of the King of Pen Yu-nami pens for our customers.

The King of Pen is handcrafted from ebonite and then finished with up to twelve coats of rich Urushi lacquer. Here black Urushi is applied as the base. The artist Wataru Kurotobi then finishes the pen with red, pink, and white Urushi to create a color gradation using the Hakeme-nuri technique, emulating the surf at sunset.

After a final grinding and polishing, pieces of gold leaf are embedded to add the glimmer of the last rays of sun. 

Artist Wataru Kurotobi finishes each Asa Tsuyu pen with his signature in kanji and the limited edition number.

Sailor's King of Pen Yu-nami Limited Edition fountain pen comes packaged in a wooden presentation box and includes a complimentary bottle of ink. The pen accepts either a standard Sailor converter or Sailor's cartridges.

The Sailor 21k nib is renowned for its smooth writing capabilities. Sailor's specialty nibs are also amongst the finest in the world.
Sailor 21k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique.

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships.
