Product Description

Platinum Maki-e Matsu-Tora Pine tree/Tiger Fountain Pen
The tiger and the pine tree, which are Japan’s representative auspicious motifs, drawn on the gold-leafed barrel make the pen a true masterpiece filled with elegance and dignity.

Barrel: Tiger. The Tiger has been painted as an auspicious motif that represents wealth, status and posterity. Among the many paintings of tiger, we have selected “Rosho Mouko-zu (ferocious tiger)” drawn by Okyo Maruyama, a Japanese artist active in the Edo period, for the design to express vigor and loveliness of the tiger.

Cap: Pine tree. Like all evergreen trees, the pine trees that retain their foliage during winter have become the symbol of life and therefore have been used in many paintings. The green color of the leaves growing through the golden clouds make the tiger stand out even more. Designed with the complete airtight Slip & Seal Mechanism that prevents ink from drying out in the pen, it allows writing with fresh new ink at any time. Kanazawa-Haku fountain pen “Matsu-Tora” that brings together Japan’s traditional and most advanced techniques is a perfect gift.

What is your opinion of the quality of this item?
Bought this in person the other day. It’s wonderful. The salesman knew his stuff, taught me stuff even after all the research I did on my own. Weight is slightly lighter than my LAMY 2000, but feels less due to great balance. Nib writes somewhere between my LAMY studio 14k and my Twisbi. Aka, constant flow, great continuous writing, but a tiny bit scratchy compared to “butter smooth” gold nibs. The art itself is worth it. You can feel it in your grip and see it change as you write and the light finds new layers to glint off of.
