The Goulet Pen Company is pleased to be expanding our line of fountain pens to include Namiki maki-e pens. The ancient Japanese tradition of maki-e is an art form that combines meticulous attention to detail with deep symbolism and mythology. The training for maki-e artists is so rigorous that a novice works for decades before making a pen without the supervision of a master craftsman. To give you all the details of these incredible works of art, Brian sat down with John Lane, the General Manager of Pilot Fine Writing, to learn the ins and outs of Namiki maki-e fountain pens.
Video provided to us by Pilot USA. The Chinkin Collection is made up of fountain pens which use “Chinkin (Gold Inlay)”, a technique on par with Maki-e. Since Chinkin is a carving technique, there is no room for mistakes. Every single carve is a true challenge in every sense of the word.

When I went to the Atlanta Pen Show a few weeks back, I was fortunate to be able to sit down with Dan Bishop of Karas Kustoms for a video interview. Dan is an absolute trip and I think you're really going to enjoy our banter.
