"A precious collection of marine species from the World Oceans"

Sailor Pen announce the arrival of the latest Limited Edition series -"The Creatures of the Deep"
This series of Marine creatures symbolizes the significance of marine life to the natural environment and to humankind everywhere.
Our planet "Earth" is a 'planet of water' - The many vast oceans cover most of the earth's surface reaching depths of up to several miles. Hidden beneath the waves is an extraordinary collection of marine creatures, some more familiar to us, but many more mysterious and often dangerous.
The Oceans support beautiful, colorful and fascinating life forms. The varied marine species coexists together in harmony providing mankind with a natural wonderland to discover, protect and hopefully preserve for future generations.
The collection will include 10 marine creatures – each one delicately hand decorated in traditional Japanese MAKI-E techniques by the famous artist and craftsman Mr. Koushu Nishihara. Each will be produced in a signed and numbered limited edition series of only 88 pieces worldwide.
The colorful designs will be applied to the Classic Sailor 1911 product, 'specially developed' to allow full appreciation of the MAKI-E design and specially fitted with a 21K solid gold nib giving absolute writing perfection.


Urushi Lacquer Artist
Koushu Nishihara


Mr. Koushu Nishihara was born into a family of 'Butsudan' MAKI-E artists in Hiroshima Japan, and he has lived with, and worked in the traditional Japanese Art of MAKI-E design all of his life.
During his training in the Wajima Urushi Lacquer Institute of Art in Ishikawa, he has mastered the traditional Japanese Urushi Lacquer Art from the famous master Mr. Masato Ikawa and Mr. Chokou Watabe.
Mr. Nishihara who resides in the Hiroshima region of Japan started working with MAKI-E designs on Sailor’s fountain pens in 2002. He maintains the Japanese traditional techniques and yet he does not hesitate where necessary to bring new youthful ideas into the art of MAKI-E.
Many of his original and imaginative works of Art are exhibited in Traditional Urushi Lacquer Art shows in Japan and several other private exhibitions.
