A mother lion pushes her children(leopard) off from the cliff to the very deep bottom of a ravine and she raises only those who can crawl up. We NAKAYA expressed this famous Japanese legend into our Maki-e fountain pen in the demand of the foreign customers. The long and slender shape of the fountain pen assist our Maki-e artists to express the legend by drawing lion, cliff and lion's children crawled up scene in a artistic way. Main technique is "Gin-yuji" method. "Gin-yuji" is the technique which heaping up by silver. The detail is piled up many times many times with the lacquer. The rise up parts are decorated with Maki-e art. Wave and other silver colored places are finished with genuine platinum. Due to the curved surface of a fountain pen, the piling work is very serious and hard. Pilling up in the direction of 360degree along the phase of fountain pen, alone takes half a year.
