That is stunning! Thanks for sharing the photos.

 

Now that, to me, is a worthwhile limited edition pen from Sailor. I'm just so tired of Sailor's mass-market ‘limited editions’ that do little more than just mixing-and-matching or colour-blocking different plain resin components of its standard pen models. At least make a special, short production run resin that, once the stock has been depleted, would be too much trouble or too costly in set-up to reproduce in a second batch! Of course, it's preferable that the limited edition is not only limited to using here-today-gone-tomorrow stock of raw material, but relies on labour-intensive craftwork from artisans who may not remain in the manufacturer's employ, or be available to accept Sailor's commission, all the time.

 

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct, and valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Thank you for sharing.

Both the pen and the box are serious work of art. Just gorgeous.
