Pelikan M1000 Raden Green Ray (Limited Edition)

$3,950

Raden is a traditional Japanese decorative craft mainly used for lacquer ware and woodwork. Working with small pieces of precious shell material, the master artist creates a unique and distinctive striped fountain pen which is impressive and a piece of art. Each individually produced piece is crafted by hand and truly unique.

The first step to create the M1000 Green Ray fountain pen is to give the surface a deep black impression by using the special Japanese Urushi lacquer. Then the traditional stripes are made with particles from Australian abalone. These wide green colored mother of pearl stripes are crafted to create a fascinating interplay of colors that glisten and shimmer in the sunlight. In the next step the stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel by coating of lacquer. Finally, the artist individually signs and numbers each fountain pen with the Maki-e technique.

The Raden M1000 Green Ray fountain pens are pieces of delicate art with finely-chased 18kt gold nibs in the size medium, all accentuated with a rhodium décor. Each fountain pen is presented in a traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood.

The Limited Edition Raden M1000 Green Ray is limited to an edition of 400 pieces worldwide. Each pen is individually numbered and signed by the Maki-e artist.

The smooth operating piston mechanism allows you to fill this pen with bottled ink. An ink window allows you to see your ink level.
