These fountain pens are styled after 'makiri', a knife which is symbolic of Ainu artisanry. The culture of 'giving and handing down' is deeply ingrained in makiri, and each fountain pen faithfully reflects this culture with an engraved design that is both functional and spiritual.
In Ainu tradition, a man presents his beloved woman a menoko makiri as a proposal gift. Likewise, these fountain pens are crafted with the philosophy of conveying treasured feelings between the giver and the recipient.
