Namiki Emperor Murasaki Shikibu

The Emperor Collection is Namiki’s highest ranking series. A size No.50 (Jumbo) 18k gold  nib, the same size as the large Maki-e fountain pen created about 90 years ago, as well as possessing an ink stopping function and the body being shaped with ebonite.

Murasaki Shikibu was a Japanese novelist, poet and lady-in-waiting at the Imperial court during the Heian period. She is best known as the author of The Tale of Genji, written in Japanese between about 1000 and 1012.

 Namiki Maki-e fountain pens encompass the ultimate fusion of skill and spirit inherited from their predecessors, and also the roots of PILOT. Over many years to the present day, they are one of the top brands in Maki-e fountain pens conveying Japanese traditional culture.

Lacquering, drawing, sprinkling and polishing. In order to bring out a beautiful, fine Maki-e, these 4 processes are repeated many times over.  More than 3 months are required until completion, with some Maki-e fountain pens being completed after going through the process as much as 130 times.

This pen employs an eyedropper filling system.
