Namiki Yukari Royal Fall Flowers
Namiki Yukari Royal Fall Flowers is made by Kokokai’s maki-e master, Michifumi Kawakuchi 倫史. Demonstrating his supreme skills, the autumn flowers were made in taka maki-e and raden to highlight the romance and nostagia of autumn. Togidashi maki-e enhances the high relief Japanese knotweeds and blue raden abalone shells to glimmer in the shadows of the knotweeds and hydrageas.
The background of the Namiki Yukari Royal Fall Flowers fountain pen is also decorated with jim maki-e gold powder to give a strong contrast to the flowers. Compared to the standard Yukari Royal size pens, the clip is maki-e in black urushi with the ball ended pen clip highlighted in gold dust. Finally, each pen is then fitted with a size 20 18kt gold nib and presented in a paulounia wooden box.

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.
