In 2021, PROCYON LUSTER, a new model developed in pursuit of a luxury feel, joined the brand line offering a smooth texture and sleek color palette. This time, special models featuring modern maki-e artworks “ cranes over moon” and “Nishikigoi” respectively on a Black Mist and Champagne Gold bodies have been created. The modern Japanese designs that combine traditional patterns and contemporary style match not only Japanese style attire but also any formal clothing on special occasions. Other features include the “Slip & Seal Mechanism ” that gives a smooth writing experience at any time and a unique feeder with the “Last Drop Mechanism” for easier ink absorption that allows you to use every last drop of ink in the bottle. The metallic body with a perfect weight balance as well as the pentagon-shaped nib stimulate the “pleasure of writing” while the unique texture achieved by the elaborate surface treatment and the gorgeous style stimulate the “pleasure of owning the pen. ”
The design incorporates the style of “Rimpa,” which is one of the art forms of Japanese paintings. Cranes have long been cherished in Japan as a symbol of good luck and used in various items and kimono patterns since ancient times.
