Namiki Chinkin Emperor Tiger Fountain Pen

In keeping with the Namiki tradition of depicting prominent Japanese emblems and mythological creatures on its fountain pens, the Tiger has been chosen as the new additions to the exquisite and limited-edition Chinkin Emperor Collection. The Namiki Emperor Tiger employs the use of one of the most esteemed Chinkin techniques – Tenbori, also known as the dot carving technique, which involves using a concentrated group of dots to form the most delicate and detailed of embellishments. Once work on the masterpiece begins, it cannot be corrected even if an error is made. This means that nothing but utter perfection and flawless craftsmanship is expected. Each touch of the carving chisel requires intense skill and concentration, and therefore, the Chinkin technique can only be achieved by artists who possess immense strength of mind and complete mastery of outstanding skills. The beautiful Namiki Emperor Tiger is also designed without pen clips, which is a first for the Chinkin Collection, making them the ultimate luxurious vest-pocket pens for the discerning.

The Tiger is a permanent fixture in the orient and the mysticism surrounding the regal creature has only increased over time. Befitting its majestic reputation, the Tiger is featured prowling down a hilly landscape surrounded by bamboo – an imagery commonly depicted in traditional orient artworks and closely associated with the Japanese Zen philosophy. The crouching Tiger symbolising ‘strength’, portrayed above the bamboo scenery, an embodiment of ‘fragility’, is a reflection of an old belief that characteristics of ‘courage’, ‘determination’, ‘humility’ and ‘flexibility’ are important in helping one overcome all challenges and tribulations. The gold portrait of the Tiger standing out prominently against the intensely black background, also accentuates the prowess and benevolence of the beast.
