Sailor 1911 Sakura Nagare Maki-e Fountain Pen

This new Sailor Sakura Nagare maki-e was model after the Sailor Sakura Special Edition fountain pen that was commission by the Japanese Government to given to the POW during WII, which was posted on my blog back in 2011.

The maki-e artwork is the same. The only diffferent is the model of the pen.

With this new launch of Sailor Sakura Nagare Makie fountain pen, there will be a wider group of users able to use this beautiful makie pen. Many thanks Sailor!

Just like the Sailor Milky way artwork. The maki-e artisan Tadashi Nakamura uses the same concept to represent the Sakura (Cherry Blossom) flowing along river.
Takdashi-san uses raden maki-e decorative technique to decorate the river to give it life ... reflection of the light from the mother of pearl. The Sukara flower is painted using hyomon maki-e technique.
This beautiful Sailor 1911 Sakura Nagare Maki-e fountain pen is available locally from all Sailor authorized retailers.
