Once in a life time opportunity

In order to celebrate Pilot's centenary milestone, we are proud to present - The Japanese Gods of Good Fortune, a collection of superb fountain pens created through the collective craftsmanship of the KOKKOKAI group of Maki-e artisans.

The KOKKOKAI is a group of artisans that formed, in 1931, around the late Gonroku Matsuda, who was later to become Japan's most respected Maki-e artisan and a Living National Treasure.

Today, the members of the KOKKOKAI—which include Maki-e artisans both working for and independent of PILOT—continue to create outstanding lacquer art in order to continue Matsuda's legacy as a Maki-e master. With no KOKKOKAI currently in training and the aging nature of the current masters within a generation, this artwork will no longer be produced making these legacy items.

This Namiki Seven Gods Yukari fountain pen was produced by Maki-e artisan Mamoru Wakabayashi for Pilot's 100th anniversary. It features the Togidashi-Taka Maki-e technique, as well as inlaid gold dust. It comes individually packaged in a wooden box with a 50ml bottle of matching limited edition yellow Iroshizuku ink and a leather pen wrap. This exquisitely lacquered brass fountain pen has a medium 18kt gold nib in size #10, is complemented by gold trim, and fills via cartridge/converter (a Con-70 is included). Only 150 limited pens have been produced for each design worldwide.

Namiki Yukari Fountain Pen - Seven Gods Daikoku-ten (100th Anniversary Limited Edition)

Daikoku-ten is a syncretic god, conflated from the Buddhist deity Mahesvara (the Hindu deity Shiva) and the indigenous Shinto god Okuninushi-no- Mikoto. In ancient times, Daikoku-ten was worshipped as the god who controlled the earth - specifically farming - and ruled food and wealth. Today, Daikoku-ten is worshipped as the god of riches, as well as happiness, prosperity, and better fortune.

This fountain pen is adorned with an image of Daikoku-ten sitting on a straw rice bag, with a large bag on his back and a magic mallet in his hand. He is accompanied by the mouse thought to be his emissary. Mice are considered to bring luck in having many descendants.
