Platinum Modern Maki-e Vicoh series 'Soryu' fountain pen. Created using the Japanese modern maki-e method, whereby the design is silk screen-printed over a dark red lacquered barrel, and then hand-painted and hand-polished by a master maki-e craftsman.
Both barrel and cap feature 'Soryu', or dragons. Dragons are seen by the Japanese as symbols of good luck and have been drawn as an 'a-un' pair. 'A' refers to the first sound when opening your mouth, while 'un' refers to the last sound; therefore the 'a-un' sounds are believed to represent the beginning and end of the universe. Platinum has expressed this concept on the Vicoh Soryu by featuring an ascending dragon on the barrel and a descending dragon on the cap.
Gold-plated stainless steel nib, available in fine and medium. Gold-plated pocket clip. Dimensions: 137mm capped; 127mm uncapped; 152mm posted; 14mm max diameter; weighs 18g.
