Here we present our newest Limited Edition fountain pen. The maki-e artwork was done by Katsunobu Nishihara. Scott Franklin and Katsunobu Nishihara teamed up to design this piece which features the story of the birth of a dragon, freeing itself from its egg shell. The cap features a raden ball as representing the father dragon in the middle of a tornado - creating "twisting dragon winds."  There are only to be 51 numbered pieces produced on this modified (cap) version of the Model 03.

  • Limited to 51 signed pieces. 
  • Produced with hand applied platinum powder, raden (mother of pearl), and egg shell. 
  • 6 layers of urushi in dragon work. (Hira Maki-e style).
  • Available with your choice of Franklin-Christoph #6 nib.

  • Featured on the cover of the April, 2021 Pen World Magazine.
