Negoro Ware was the most popular lacquer ware during the Muromachi period of Japan (1392 – 1573). The name Negoro was derived from the original place of manufacture at the Negoro temple in Kii Province, Japan during the 14th century.
Unknown to many collectors of maki-e pens, the Pilot 95th Anniversary Noburi Ryu is the like of Negoro ware which is greatly prized for their appearance of antiquity. When the time the black layer becomes visible in patches through the vermillion layer, it exhibits this simple, yet powerful complexion that makes them precious and admired.
The first look on the this maki-e Pilot Dragon Pen would gave it a miss because many thought that the dragon looks whimsical and does not bear the ferocity of most Dragons in the Pilot Limited Edition Pen that were made in the past or recent times.
Essentially, it is the trained eye that can recognize immediately the existence and appreciation of this vermillion red that would turn to antiquity over time. As the red lacquer wears away gradually and irregularly with use, producing the effect of natural aging for which these pieces becomes highly appreciated and sought after.
The good news is that when many pen collectors find the Pilot Rising Dragon Limited Edition – Noburi Ryu looks “simple” that is when the prized pieces are just in front of your door steps. To miss buying a good pen, when you can actually own it now, may well be missing an elephant by a mile when you are so close.
The appreciation of maki-e pens is not purely about the maki-e techniques alone. It is important to know how the rich heritage of Japanese lacquer that spans over hundreds of years have taught us on the art, history and depth of Japanese maki-e.

Choosing a pen for oneself is a very personal thing. Each and every individual has his own style and preference. Moreover a pen is not meant to be shared and each pen inks and etches out a different story for its owner.
Pen shop provide the best destination for writing instruments as they are the specialists in this area. They stock a wide assortment of pens which come in different materials, designs, sizes, colours, weight. The limited edition models tend to be hand-crafted, hand–painted and fountain pens fitted with 14 carat or 18 carat gold nibs which provide the writing pleasure and durability. Rare materials include tortoiseshell, ivory, jadeite and amber.
In the search for a good pen, one should visit specialist pen shops who have experienced and knowledgeable staff to assist customers to choose the right pens meant for use or as gifts. From understanding the customer’s usage of the pen ie. signing, writing, both writing and signing, handwriting that is firm or floating, right or left-hander. Keen understanding of customers’ preference for style and material is crucial as using a pen in the hand is truly an experience. This is akin to drinking coffee from a beautiful cup and saucer versus drinking from a disposable cup. The right pen shop will provide a memorable shopping experience.

For centuries, Asians have loved Jade not only because of its beauty but it is also well loved for its aural of luck and prosperity.
In the vague memory of pens being produced·of jade material, there was a pen made by Montblanc around year 2000 of an Imperial Jade Dragon.· Only that ·the cap·was ·made of jade while the barrel·was made of precious resins.
For some good reasons, I think the Jade pen from Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition is going to be the best pen to collect and buy·for the following reasons:
1.· The usual quantity being made is around 2,000 to 2,500 for this annual collection.· The collection this year is only 1,761 (it was pre-determined) just because it is the year when Graf Von Faber- Castell was established.· A perfect excuse for the pen price to be higher than normal, in addition to it· being made of precious jade.
2. The quantity is pre-determined and unlike previous years of which the quantity is not known to public.
3. Jade, being a living material in the Asian thinking, is going to be well like and this pen is made by Faberge, an exclusive jeweller. A lot of China play here.
4. A good gift to give away to Chinese friends or important persons who valued jade – if you do not like it.
Hence, it cannot be very wrong either way.
Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition continued to make Simplicity Is A Luxury, true to its motto.
