Hello Pelikan lovers, we are glad to introduce this years Pelikan Maki-e fountain pen!


Symbolizing spring and autumn we find a cherry blossom and maple carefully drawn on the fountain pen's cap and body. Three traditional Japanese designs are represented on the cap: A flow of water on the green zone, a leaf of hemp on the brown area and finally a golden stripe. All of them are created using many small pieces gold leaf.


The fountain pen's body features additional artistic designs, as well as small pieces of blue shell to create the beautiful Raden area. A infinite pattern of stripes is drawn on the violet zone entailing eternal love.


The Harikiri technique, known for being one of Makie-e's most difficult techniques is also used on the silver area giving a dramatic and beautiful touch to this masterpiece.


This Limited Edition combines Pelikan's German heritage, technology and hand craftsmanship with Japanese Maki-e techniques.


The crown features Pelikan's iconic logo, the Limited Edition number and the artists' signature have been drawn by hand in each fountain pen using Maki-e.


Each fountain pen has a bicolored 18K gold nib and comes in a traditional Japanese wooden box made with paulownia wood.


This edition is limited to 111 pieces in the world, and we will have the pleasure to have one of them.


Get a sneak peak at this beautiful masterpiece below!

Thanks for sharing the news!  Not quite to my taste but I'm sure this will please quite a few.  The Maki-e pens have always been a source of awe.

They look so nice. *.*

But they are way too expensive for me. :(

Those are really beautiful.  But not only would they be *way* above my price point (and likely to be too large and heavy for me), but for me maki-e pens are "look but don't touch..." -- I'd be too worried about the urushi because I'm extremely allergic to poison ivy (urushiol oil is the same stuff, basically) and when I get poison ivy it goes systemic: I literally have it for weeks (the last time was about 6 weeks, and took 3 courses of steroids to knock it out).  

I just can't take the risk, and absolutely will not buy a pen I can't use....  :(

Beautiful. But I would have to save  up for a long time for this and by that time, I'm sure Pelikan will have introduced some other maki-e designs. Whoever does get one of these will be very happy though.
