Rumours, Rumours Namiki New Yukari Royale

Two By Two. Namiki discontinue two Yukari Royale last year. This year they are introducing two new Yukari Royale design; The Chrysanthem Flower and Traditional Japanese wrapper.

We are suprised by these new design was we are expecting Namiki to introduce this design that is close to the two was discontinue as it very popular.

Well! I guess the Namiki Limited Edition already give us a hint that Namiki is trying to capture new market using non-traditional design.

Who is the artisan for this two beautiful maki-e pen?

Namiki is keep their lip close about it. Guess we will have to wait to Nov/Dec when we receive our pieces.

In the meantime, start saving for it.

Cross - 2012 Year of The Dragon

The launch of the Cross Year Of The Dragon (2012) pens reminded me of the launch of sales of the Chinese Mooncake in Singapore.

The sales of Mooncake started before the end of the lunar seventh month. Some suppliers even start selling it as early as week 2 of lunar seventh month. All this in the hope to capture more market share.

We are four months away before it come to an end for the Year 2011, the Cross Year of The Dragon is already available locally at all authorized retailers. Cross is not the first to launch a Dragon pen this year.
