Namiki Yukari Hydrangea Raden Fountain Pen
The Namiki Yukari Hydrangea Raden Fountain Pen carries a meaningful flower, the Hydrangea. The meaning and symbol of was first discovered in Japan, the name hydrangea comes from the Greek “hydor,” meaning water, and “angos,” meaning jar or vessel. This roughly translates to “water barrel,” referring to the hydrangea’s need for plenty of water and its cup-shaped flower.
Each pen is decorated using raden abalone shells to give the glimmer against a togidashi makie background. The Namiki Yukari Hydrangea Raden Fountain Pen is fitted with an 18kt gold nib and fills using a knob filler.

Namiki is the surname of Ryosuke Namiki, the founder of the Pilot, named Namiki Manufacturing Company until 1938 when it became Pilot Pen Co., Ltd.. The brand name Namiki came to fame in the early 20th Century when Dunhill retailed in the west the Maki-e pens produced by Pilot under the brand Dunhill-Namiki. This partnership has continued to the present day (occasionally Namiki makes a Limited Edition for Dunhill) although Namiki has always been owned by Pilot.
The premium Namiki ranges include the Emperor Collection, Yukari Royal, and Yukari Collection, and this is the brand used by Pilot to sell their the high valued Maki-e pens worldwide.
