Namiki Chinkin Fountain Pens
Part of the stunning Namiki Maki-e collection, Namiki Chinkin fountain pens are striking because of their unique design and the complex techniques used to create them. The word "Chinkin" translates to 'Gold Inlay', which is the method used to create each pen. Specialized chisels carve out designs in the Urushi lacquer. Since every chisel mark will show in the final pen, there is absolutely no room for error. Artisans train for years in order to accomplish each work of art.
Once the carving is completed, gold and silver metal powder is then gently laid into the cuts. This method creates an incredibly dynamic design, as if each form is about to pop off the pen. The contrast between the deep black with bright gold is both classic and stunning. When holding the pen in your hand, you can see just how much detailed work went into creating these works of art. It is both astonishing and humbling.
