Our dragon series comes full circle with this edition. We started with the mother, the Silver Dragon, who then gave birth to the baby in the Birth of a Dragon edition. Now we present the Diamondback Dragon, that baby grown up.

The first batch of 10 has sold out. The second batch is expected in February, 2024. If you'd like to reserve one with a 50% deposit, please email us. 

Here we present our newest Limited Edition fountain pen. The maki-e artwork was done by
Katsunobu Nishihara. Scott Franklin designed this piece in partnership with Mr. Nishihara to feature a dragon in serpent form with the four diamond motif in raden (mother of pearl). This piece features more end details with egg shells on the cap dotted with more raden diamonds, and mother of pearl / abalone raden pieces on both ends. It is the most comprehensive and time intensive piece to date.
