Kirikane is a traditional craft which came to Japan from Korea in the 6th century and has long been associated with the decoration of Buddhist statues. Utilizing carefully prepared gold leaf which is hand cut to less than the width of a human hair, each piece is carefully applied to create a unique pattern reprensentating a natural object which itself resonates with symbolic meaning in Japanese tradition.
Sailor's Kirikane pens can fill with any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the provided converter, and can also use convenient Sailor brand disposable ink cartridges, now available in over 30 different nuanced hues. Each pens ships in a traditionally designed Japanese chestnut wood box. We are an authorized Sailor Bespoke Collection dealer.
