This is pilots very expensive Hira makie design. This is a handmade
design and takes a long time to make this design. Because if you see the
picture of the design you will see that the feather of the crane is so natural
and gorgeous. Because the maker has given a lot of effort and time to make this
design. And the most important and attractive thing is that during drawing the
cranes had to be so careful. Because if there is a single and a very little
mistake then the famous Pilot company does not sell this. And also at the same
time as it is a large design it is realizable that there is a mistake. So the
maker expands a lot of time. About the makie it has written bellow.
What makes this pen truly
special is the rare signature: Sei
Katsuda. he was born in 1920, graduated from Tokyo Art University in 1939
and entered Pilot in 1953. His father was a legendary maki-e artist

"Zen and the
Art of Pen Making." As the oldest and largest manufacturer of writing instruments in Japan, Pilot maintains a Zen-like philosophy. It is
symbolized by an ancient bronze vessel which stands on three legs. One leg
represents people who make Pilot products. The second leg represents those who sell the products, and the third leg stands for those who use them. Just
as the three legs are essential to support the vessel, so are the three groups essential to
each other's success.
The consistent high quality of Pilot products results from Pilot's
control over all aspects of production. Obsessive craftspeople at heart,
they design and manufacture their own dies, molds and machine tools to ensure
that every Pilot performs perfectly. Out side the Japan, Pilot Company has
their branches or franchises in 40 countries in Europe, USA, Brazil, Taiwan and
Singapore. Pilot pen is famous all over the world and people consider Pilot pen
as a good collection.
Japanese Urushi Art.
Urushi (Japanese lacquer) art is unique to Japan, China, Korea and
the countries of Southeast Asia, each country preserving to the present day its
own particular traditions. Japanese urushi art is especially rich in terms both
of variety and sophistication of technique. In addition to the highly developed
skills that Japanese craftsmen have used to elevate urushi art to the heights
for which it is renowned, Japan is blessed with an abundance of trees producing
high quality hard urushi as well as a variety of timbers
suitable for the making of the bodies of urushi wares.
Maki-e is an ancient Japanese art that combines intricate
lacquer painting with a variety of surface decorations. These
traditionally include powered gold and other precious metals, gemstones, mother
of pearl or abalone shell.
This 1200-year-old art form was created to embody the
harmony of man with nature. Platinum Maki-e instruments are exclusively
designed by commissioned Japanese artisans utilizing the rich Maki-e heritage
of Japan’s Kaga region.
