Sailor Co. Japan and Morriki Ikki collaborated to create the "Season Under Star" project. At the time of writing, we do not know if this project will consist of four pens to show case the four seasons or it will just one.
We asked but received no feedback till date. We suspect the deciding factor for the next pen(s) is the sales performance of this Sailor King Of Pen (KOP) Winter Under The Star Limited Edition.
. . . but if we read closing at the information given out by Sailor, it mentioned that it is a unique series of Limited Edition Maki-e Collections depicting famous constellations overlooking the seasonal night landscapes.
We feel Moroiki-san should have uses the maki-bokashi technique to painted the pen top which should better differentiate the cloud and sky.
A very tiny sprinkle of gold dust on the sky (pen cap) to represent the stars under the sky.
This Sailor King Of Pens Winter under the Star Limited Edition maki-e painting is painted on the Sailor King of Pens ebonite edition. Like all the Sailor KOP pens, it is fitted with a 21K solid gold nib to give the owner the absolute perfect writing experience while enjoy the beautiful maki-e art.
Sailor King Of Pens Winter under the Stars is limited to 28 individually numbered pieces worldwide.
We are lucky to add this beautiful pen into our maki-e pen collection, and looking forward to the next pen (if any) under this series.
