Sailor commissioned Kaga Maki-e Master Ikki Moroiki san to create four limited edition pens within the collection “Taki-to-Shizen” (Waterfalls and nature). “Koi-no-Takinobori” (Koi and waterfall) is the first pen limited to 28 pcs worldwide with 21k nib in M or B. Ancient Japanese folklore tells of the very determined Koi Carp striving to reach the top of the rapids of the Yellow river. The Koi Carp refused to give up and struggled on and finally reached the top of the falls. The Gods approved of the continued efforts of this heroic achievement and transformed the Carp into an eternal golden dragon. Koi carp evoke images of energy, power and courage and are symbolic of perseverance and endurance in overcoming adversity and finally achieving one’s goals in life. A new project to enjoy and collect ! Catherine
