Getting one of these is almost impossible from Sailor and lucky me that I found this KOP or King Of Pens from a stationery shop in Tokyo. The reason being these KOP models are exclusively rare in the market and If you really want to have one, you will need to wait months after months to get them from any retailers because they also cannot have them as the production is limited. Ebonite is used for the body, and colored lacquer is applied and polished many times using the lacquer technique "Ishime-nuri, " which makes the surface of the lacquer uneven like a stone skin.
It is a solid one equipped with a 21-karat gold nib unique to Sailor Pen. The pen is absolutely flawless. AT IT'S VERY BEST.With its simple minimalist shape and high-shine, the Sailor King of Pen with traditional lacquer art Iromiyabi is Sailor's sleekest design in an oversized pen. This model is handcrafted from high-quality ebonite. Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke Collection, this pen is provided the most popular choice of 21k solid gold rhodium-plated King of Pen size nib. This pen is made available with the largest size handmade Sailor King of Pen nib and very expensive Wajima Urushi on Ebonite.
This is a very high-end KOP that Sailor stopped production long ago and Sailor released this Urushi KOP which is a much expensive model than the usual KOP Ebonite. The future availability of this model is very uncertain and very rare in the market.
I have collected this model from one of the pen shops in Japan. Beautiful Urushi Over Ebonite body From Sailor. ISHIMENURI MAKI-E MADE IN THE FAMOUS WAJIMA BY MR. The Ishimenuri Maki-e is a lacquer technique that makes the surface of the lacquer uneven like a stone skin.

Currently, Yamanaka-nuri (also referred to as "Kaga-nuri" in recent years) is one of the many lacquer producing areas in Japan, and while enhancing the robustness and grace that are the characteristics of lacquerware, there are so many that cannot be seen in other lacquer producing areas.
We are creating lacquerware with abundant creativity. Due to the nature of lacquer, skilled craftsmanship by handwork is required for lacquer crafts, and lacquer artists who are active as writers are also required to have craftsmanship, so highly creative lacquer crafts are also of excellent quality.
