    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 black lacquered metal barrel of the Black Edition, with its decorative 24-carat-gold plating, evokes the elaborately ornate armour made from individual plates.

    The barrel made of black lacquered metal features delicate, tapered lines with 24-carat gold plating which makes the embellishment on the barrel appear slightly embossed. Miyamoto Musashi's quote Cultivate both – your spirit and wisdom is engraved on the cap. There is a Tamahagane inlay in the cap with engraving of the Japanese character for samurai. The end cap is engraved with the symbol created by Musashi for the word tsuba (hand guard) and a wave like pattern. Cap and handle are finished with a tough anthracite-coloured PVD coating made of titanium.

    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.
