Sailor focuses on the natural world and our fragile relationship with it in continuing its ‘Endangered Species’ series of Maki-e pens. The first three pens in the series depicted avian life. With the Sailor Limited Edition Giant Panda Maki-e Fountain Pen, the series turns its attention to endangered mammals and one of the most beloved of all land animals. Only 88 of these hand-painted Maki-e pens will be produced worldwide.
The artist is Koushu Nishihara, who also created Sailor’s popular ‘Creatures of the Deep’ series. Master artisan Nishihara-san uses his skillful hand to express the simple black and white beauty of the Giant Panda using kaga maki-e technique on a classic Sailor 1911 fountain pen with 21K gold nib. The Giant Panda was painted using simple lines and curves to reflect the sleek beauty of black and white. Two panda cubs on the cap follow their protective mother in a forest of bamboo.
