We are glad to announce two Namiki Yukari fountain pens will also launch this upcoming November 2016. Discover the new Namiki Yukari Milky Way and Namiki Yukari Shooting Stars!
Namiki Yukari Milky Way
This fountain pen is inspired by the mythical and mysterious Milky Way giving a touch of modernity to a refined design that will make the writer dream.
On the barrel we can find the Lyra constellation, which is located on the northern hemisphere and dominated by the bright Vega. The cap shows the Aquila constellation and its main star Altair, which are located near the celestial equator.
Hira Maki-e gold powder streaks, are scattered elegantly around the pens black urushi lacquer body representing how the Milky Way crosses the night sky. The Shu-kanshitsu Maki-e technique sprinkles dry vermilion lacquer particles enhancing the design.
Stars are represented by small gold, silver and mother of pearl circles finely cut in shellfish using the Raden technique. The amazing shades they feature are achieved due to a very special technique: Fuse-zaishikim. This technique colors the back of the shell pieces to be encrusted so that the color combines by transparency with its iridescent aspect.
Namiki Shooting Stars
Your wishes will have more chances of being fulfilled with this amazing Yukari dedicated to shooting stars. This fountain pen features two innovative techniques, added to the usual Maki-e.
The planets in the galaxy are created by using inlays of small gold, silver and mother pearl circles. This last ones are finely cut in shellfish using the Raden technique.
The Fuse-zaishiki technique, which we explained on the Namiki Yukari Milky Way, is also used to give these pieces their amazing shades. The bright trails of shootings stars are skillfully designed by trajectories of silver flakes due to Gin-birame, the second innovative technique.
Both fountain pens will be available this upcoming November.
