Courage and self-discipline – the samurai were driven by lofty virtues. The Pen of the Year 2019 was inspired by their era, spanning several centuries, by the aesthetics of their weapons and by their mindset.
The barrel is made of dark-stained magnolia wood which is reminiscent of the Samurais’ long swords (katanas) who’s sheath and handle were made of untreated magnolia wood.
The dark-stained magnolia wood barrel features an engraving in 24-carat gold varnish with the Miyamoto Musashi quote “Today I win against myself of yesterday”. A metal plate, engraved with the gold plated (24 carat gold) Japanese character for samurai, adorns the cap. The end cap is engraved with the symbol created by Musashi for the word tsuba (hand guard) and the cap and the handle are coated in ruthenium. The pen is fitted with a ruthenium-plated 18-carat gold nib, inscribed by hand.
This pen is available in the nib width M (medium), F (fine), B (broad) and B (extra broad).
Each pen is individually numbered and comes in an exclusive, brightly polished black wooden box with an attractive brochure and a certificate of authenticity. An additional insert offers space for six more writing instruments.
