Sailor KOP Spring Under The Star Limited Edition

The Sailor KOP Spring Under the Star Limited Edition is the second pen of the Seasons Under the Star maki-e pens series launched earlier in 2013. Sailor launched this series starting with winter; Sailor KOP Winter under the Star. My guess it was winter 2012 when the artisan was working on this project.

Unlike DaniTrio and Nakaya, the Sailor maki-e fountain pen section is not painted, or coated with urushi. The Sailor Spring Under The Star fountain pen section is fixed with the Sailor standard KOP fountain pen section.
