Bespoke 2nd Edition Iro-Miyabi Collection ‘Miyabi-nuri’ by Sailor pens!
Kon-Ruri: [con roo-ree]
A navy blue with a noble lapis lazuli color was popular in the Edo period because it appeared to shine against dark blue.
Each of these pens is created with the expressive application of lacquers using a silk cloth. The patterns that result are soft, elegant, and refined with colors that precisely complement one another. These pens are made on an ebonite base in a King of Pen size, with a 21K, bi-color gold nib.
All will arrive in their own beautifully crafted paulownia boxes built for lacquer pen storage and decorated with a special Sanada strap: commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies.
About “Iro-Miyabi” series:
The value of lacquerware was established in the Nara and Heian periods as a symbol of wealth in aristocratic society and a beautiful embodiment of the world of Shintoism and
Buddhism, and colored lacquer has developed along with it. The beauty and profoundness of Japanese traditions, and the lacquerware that enriches and inspires people, are the reasons why the pen barrel is finished in colored lacquer and named the traditional lacquer "Iro-Miyabi" series.
“Kaga-nuri”(also called “Yamanaka-nuri”) is a traditional craft which originated in Kaga city, Ishikawa. In the Edo era, Kaga-nuri was used for tableware or furniture on which beautiful Urushi and Maki-e designs were applied.
A rich expression is created by taking lacquer on a silk cloth and stroking it. The pattern is expressed by using base color lacquer and special lacquer so that it does not stand out strongly and expresses a sense of fineness. In addition, pure gold and silver powders are gently sprinkled on the surface of the lacquer.
Sailor has made a new design for their nibs. The pens which are produced from January 2022 onwards will have the new-design nib. The difference between the old nib and the new nib:
Depending on the availability of our stock, you may receive the old Sailor nib design or the new Sailor nib.
