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 Misa Seki 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 green-black 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 Hotei-Son(100th Anniversary Limited Edition)

Said to be the incarnation of the Buddhist deity Maitreya Bodhisattva, Hotei-son, who dates back to the Chinese Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.) is unique among the Seven Gods of Good Fortune for being the only monk. Hotei-son is widely regarded as a god of good fortune and matrimonial happiness, believed to impart riches, status and prosperity.

On the fountain pen, he is depicted among the Chinese mountains, and boasts a happy smile, as well as a plump face and potbelly. On his shoulder, he carries a large Kannin-bukuro, or patience bag, said to contain the many treasures and blessings he bestows on others.

The black-green ink echoes the color of Hotei-son’s necklace, depicted on the fountain pen.
