Pilot Coronation Limited Edition Coronation Phoenix Fountain Pen
On 1 May 2019, Japan welcomed a new era; REIWA (令和) which means Beautiful Harmony. It marks an end to the Heisei period which ended on 30 April 2019. Reiwa is also the first time, a Japanese era name with characters taken from Japanese classical literature instead of classic Chinese literature.
Pilot honours the new era and Emperor Naruhito Coronation with a limited edition of 800 fountain pens which shows a beautiful golden phoenix on the barrel decorated in taka maki-e and gold dust while the cap is decorated with camellia. The camellia is an early spring flower native to Asia. In Japanese, this flower is known as tsubaki. They were very popular with nobles during the Edo Period. Each pen is fitted with a 18kt solid gold size 10 nib and works with a cartridge converter.
The current shape of the pen is rounded at the ends while the former Pilot Coronation pen Hou Ou made in November 1990 was flat type. The details on the clip is also similar but with two outward pointing arrows up and down as compared to three outward pointing arrows up and down.
The packaging of the Pilot Coronation Phoenix Fountain pen has an octagonal shaped paulounia wood box which comes with a bottle of ink that has an ink cap showing “Reiwa 2019.5.1”and the camellia flower. The uniqueness of this sacred geometry when viewing the octagon, there are two shapes coming together as one; which is the circle and square. The circle represents heaven and the square represents earth, thus unifying these two energies through an infinite connection.
The Pilot Coronation Limited Edition Phoenix Fountain Pen is a limited edition of 800 pens worldwide.
