Namiki Chinkin Fountain Pen - Silver Grass
This Namiki Chinkin Silver Grass 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. To many nature lovers, even a simple stalk of grass is beautiful. Namiki illustrates the beauty and elegance of Silver Grass in its true natural beauty with the application of Chinkin, the art of lacquer, whereby lines and dots are scrapped by a metal scrapper and then inlay with gold powder before the final application of natural lacquer. Namiki introduces this natural beauty with the Namiki Chinkin Silver Grass collection in 2014 Chinkin collection.
Contrary to the use of dot chinkin, as in the Namiki Chinkin Cranes, Namiki Chinkin Silver Grass is made using Senburi (line chinkin). In the skillful hands of artisans from Namiki studio, Kokokai, the Namiki Chinkin Silver Grass brings resonates the air of simplicity with luxury and nature in its best form.
