A Limited Edition of just 28 pieces worldwide, this pen is based on the Sailor King of Pen with maki-e decoration created by master maki-e artist Maki-e artist Ikki Moroike.
Dragonflies are one of the oldest living insects dating back to the Dinosaur era, over 300 million years ago. There are over 3000 different species and they are found in every continent except Antarctica. Japan itself was known as Akitsushima (Dragonfly island) which has 172 species of Dragonfly (Tombo).
Symbolic of Summer and Autumn, the 'Tombo' represents Power, Agility and Victory, and in China signifies Prosperity, Harmony and good luck.
In ancient mythology it is said that after St. George wounded the Dragon, his horse was turned into a giant flying insect - Dragonfly.
