Namiki Chinkin Fountain Pen - Pine Tree

( 1 Review )

This Namiki Chinkin Pine Tree fountain pen was created by a collaboration of maki-e artists (Kokkokai) in Japan, and is available with 18k gold nibs in Fine, Medium and Broad nib sizes. Pine Trees are admired for its tenacity, strength and aspiration to grow in the face of adversity. Described as one of the Three Friends of Winter, namely Pines, Bamboo and Plum, the Namiki Chinkin Pine Trees has always been the pen of choice for many gentlemen because of this unique profile of the Pine Trees.

Beautifully and softly depicted using Tenbori technique (Dot carving), the cat is seen sitting demurely with its eyes fixated on the foxtail grasses that is intricately carved out using Senbori technique (Linear carving) displaying side while exuding a graceful poise and elegant demeanor. The Namiki Chinkin Pen Collection is made up of fountain pens which use "Chinkin (Gold Inlay)", a lacquer-ware technique that Japan boasts is on par with Maki-e. Motifs are carved into the lacquered surface with special chisels, then lacquer is inlaid into the grooves, and strategically placed gold leaves and gold powder gives the pattern expression. The delicate and fine depiction, and three-dimensional aspect that overflows with a strong power of expression are the special characteristics of this collection. Since Chinkin is a carving technique, there is no room for mistakes, and every single carve is a true challenge in the sense of the word.

Beyond words!

"I have been lusting for a Namiki for quite some time (many years) and never found the guts to invest the substantial amount of money one of these pens cost. But so, several years later and me being more mature and investing more in myself and the things I love, here I find myself, a proud owner of a Namiki Chinkin Pine Tree.
And what a pen it is! The box, the papers, the package itself from Anderson pens. Everything set to perfection.
Thank you SO much for everything and for a very quick, easy and cost effective transaction. There will definitely be More purchases from your lovely site!"
