Namiki Yukari Royal Black Urushi
The plain black colour Namiki Yukari Royal Black Urushi without Ring is just the ideal size pen for daily use with the colour black that matches any outfit.
The Namiki Yukari Royal Black Urushi without Ring shows complete clean design with no golden trims to obstruct the aesthetic beauty of a clean design.
The longer one uses the black Urushi pen, the lacquer actually becomes so smooth as if it is an adjoinment to your skin. At the same time, lacquer, being a living material does change colour to an interesting mellow after such time.
Each pen is also fitted with an 18kt yellow gold nib which comes in Fine, Medium and Broad size 20 nib.
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 Royale, and Yukari Collection, and this is the brand used by Pilot to sell their the high valued Maki-e pens worldwide.
