    Product Description

    Metropolitan Museum of Art Samurai Dragon Ballpoint Pen
    Samurai swords used by Japan’s rulers are widely recognized as masterpieces of the metalworker’s art. The famous Goto school of sword-fittings makers was established in the 15th century. Later generations of Goto masters focused on small decorative sword fittings, such as the kozuka, utility knife handle, kogai, a skewerlike tool, and menuki, a pair of grip ornaments.

    Their work is characterized by painterly designs carved in high relief on a rich, black metal background, accented in gold and silver. The Metropolitan Museum of Art Samari Dragon Rollerball pen motif is taken from a sinuous dragon - a sign of good fortune - on a kozuka inscribed by Goto Mitsutaka (1722-1784), the 13th-generation Goto master, which is part of the Metropolitan Museum’s collection. The Samurai Dragon twisting advance ballpoint pen comes gift boxed.
