I am tempted to buy Sailor 1911 Maki-e Momiji. I found one online for £400 which I think is a great price if its real maki-e. On the other hand, if its modern maki-e it would be a bit of a ripoff.
Does anyone know what type of makie it is?

I think there has been more than one Momiji 1911L over the years so a link would be helpful. But if it is the one Im thinking of that was released several years ago along with the dragonfly, butterfly, and one or two others - it is hand applied maki-e and not stenciled. Further, I think it is signed by Kousen Oshita who has a workshop with at least three artists working under his direction so think of it more as a collective rather than the individual artists signature. Oshita has done maki-e for Sailor, Pilot, Platinum, and Visconti among others. I have two examples of his work and they are beautiful.

Thanks. Oshita designed this maki-e. It’s advertised as Sailor Maki-e MOMIJI, AUTUMN LEAVES,
10-4052-440 is the product code

I have found one on eBay for £233. That’s very cheap for real maki-e

I just bought one of the "Autumn Leaves" Momiji Sailor 1911 pens and am trying to figure out how old it is.  The nib does not have the 1911 stamped on it, rather, it has the Sailor anchor emblem.  Any ideas as to it's age?


Breathe.  Take one step at a time.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  You're not getting older, you are only moving through time.  Be calm and positive.

I am sorry to interrupt this topic. Why there is no separate brand focus for Sailor pens? It puzzles me.

Now that I am a Sailor owner, I have wondered the same thing, but there are lots of pen brands that don't have their own thread, so I guess Sailor is just one of those who doesn't.  Maybe some day.

Considering that a brand I never heard of (and can't pronounce) until joining here -- Twsbi -- has its own forum, but Pilot/Platinum/Sailor (all with around 100 year histories) get lumped under "Japanese".

This is the state of affairs here.
