Taccia Miyabi Empress Fountain Pen - Chinkin Tiger - Limited Edition. 

This impressive tiger design was created using the Chinkin technique, in which the design is carefully carved into an urushi-lacquered surface; precious metal powders are then rubbed into the grooves to illuminate the drawing. Chinkin Tiger is limited to 36 pens worldwide.

The fountain pens in Taccia's Miyabi Empress Collection pair Taccia's oversized Empress body with a Sailor King of Pen (KOP) 18k gold nib. These pens often feature the Rankaku and Raden Maki-e techniques (the inlaying of quail eggshells and abalone shells) combined with expert application of urushi lacquer to create stunning and unique works of art.

Each fountain pen is made by hand in Taccia's urushi studio on Wajima, Japan, using traditional inlay techniques enhanced with precious metals and lacquer. To blend the old with the new, each fountain pen comes fitted with an 18k gold nib made by Sailor in Japan along with an individually polished, lightweight yet durable ebonite barrel. The cushion snap cap closure allows for an airtight seal that prevents the pen from drying out. Each series is limited and signed by the maki-e artisan who created it, truly emphasizing the tradition of craftsmanship.

The Taccia Pen Company was founded on the core belief that pens should be affordable, stylish, and well-built. Taccia strives to develop and produce pens that cater to all walks of life and occasions.
