I wanted to share with you the Sailor LE "Koi-no-Takinobori". It has only been released in Europe.

 

It is the first pen in a series of four, limited to 28 pcs each worldwide. The theme is "Waterfalls and Nature". Launched in september only a few pcs are left. The #3 is the last one available for 2016 in the SFPG. A few more are to be expected in 2017. Pictures never do justice to a maki-e. This pen is beautiful and shiny in silver and gold on a black background. On the cap the waterfall is "splashing" down in a dynamic way. The Koi reaching to the top stands out in a raised reliëf. On the body you discover a Koi in a "see through" way under the water. The flowers painted on this pen are three of the seven autumn flowers famous in Japan : hagi, omiaeshi and kikyo. Beautiful work of art.

It is a clipless KOP and comes in a wooden box. The Artist is Ikki Moroiki.

It's actually a very reasonable price as well.  Well, not reasonable for me but reasonable considering similar pens from other sources.

Yes it is considering the skill and range of techniques used.

That's impressive.  Thank you for sharing.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
