The Pilot Namiki 100th Anniversary Limited Edition Yukari Fountain Pen - The Seven Gods of Good Fortune Ebisu is available for order online and in-store at Dromgoole's.
Ebisu is the only deity among the Japanese Seven Gods of Good Fortune to originate in Japan; his parents were the goddess Izanami and the god Izanagi, who created the islands of Japan. In ancient times, Ebisu was worshipped as the god of plentiful fishing, but over time he came to be worshipped as the god of happiness and prosperity who makes everything plentiful, from businesses to crops. This fountain pen is adorned with the traditional image of Ebisu with a fukuzasa – a bamboo stalk believed to bring good fortune to businesses. In his left hand he holds a red snapper, and in his right a fishing rod.
As with all of Namiki's Seven Gods of Good Fortune fountain pens, Ebisu is crafted in Togidashi-Taka Maki-e (Burnished-Raised Maki-e) and comes in a bespoke wooden presentation box containing a limited edition bottled ink, a box of matching ink cartridges, and a leather pen holder. The lid of the box features as a laser engraving of Mt.Fuji and a treasure ship carrying the goods of good fortune.
For those who missed the 100th Anniversary Set released in 2018, the option to buy all seven pens, with matching numbers, in the Commemorative Collection is available and includes a Pawlownia wood box to safely store them. The price is $33,600. If you are interested, please contact Larry or Michael Dromgoole as these sets are only available for as long as the individual pens have not already sold.
