Sailor Limited edition Samurai "The Battle of Sekigahara"
21 October 1600.
A foggy morning.
The Western army lead by Mitsunara Ishida is waiting at the left side of the riverbank. The Eastern army stationed at the right side of the river is lead by Warlord Tokugawa Leyasu.
Shogun Lords gathered their armies at either side of the river. Some of them deceivingly undecided about which side to choose. Others will change camps in the heath of the battle. About 200 000 warriors are ready to fight the Battle of Sekigahara. Half of them will be perished by the end of the day.
The Battle of Sekigahara was probably the most famous decisive Samurai battle that led to the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate.
Sailor commissioned Ikki Moroike to create a limited edition pen "The Battle of Sekigahara" in high-end Maki-e to commemorate this important historical event. He made 28 fountain pens in Togidashi Taka-maki-e with sublime techniques. Each pen is offered in a lacquered box with Maki-e design on the lid. We can offer #3/28. Please contact us.
