The Namiki Nippon Art Chinese Phoenix fountain pen utilizes Hira Maki-e technique from the Kokkokai artisan group, with its ornate design set against a rich black backdrop, the Namiki Nippon Art Chinese Phoenix pays homage to this special bird.

Known to the Chinese as Feng Huang, the phoenix symbolizes virtue, grace and prosperity. The phoenix also represents the union of opposites, yin and yang, both male and female.

The Chinese phoenix represents the light of the sun and the moon and is the bird of the southern sky. Its song is said to have been the basis of the five cardinal notes of Chinese melody and one of the four creatures that created the world.

This delightful pen arrives in a traditional softwood gift box lined with crimson velvet and a bottle of black Namiki ink. 


The fountain pen is in near mint condition.


The pen has been cleaned and dip tested and the nib fine tuned.

Writing Style & Nib Appraisal

The nib has been tuned to ensure smooth writing experience.

The nib is a delightfully smooth Broad nib, which in western terms is a slightly finer broad than say a Montblanc Broad.

The Namiki #10 solid gold 14k Broad nib is inscribed with the silhouette of Mt. Fuji as well as the Namiki pentagon logo. Namiki 14k gold nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique



Recommended for everyday use, calligraphy, greeting cards, signatures, journaling, and all forms of appropriate use. 

Why not pair with a bottle of J Herbin ink? Caroube de Chypre would suit this pen very well in our eyes!
