Wabi Sabi is the Japanese principle of embracing the imperfections of life. Coupling Sailor’s supreme craftsmanship and describing anything they do as less-than-perfect may seem like a contradiction, but it’s most definitely not. The philosophy of Wabi Sabi is the contradiction between convention and the absurd realism of our daily lives. Sailor’s Wabi Sabi II is a brilliant real world example of this tension between ideal and the flawed.
Now, let’s be clear, we’re not saying the Wabi Sabi collection is flawed. But it is a departure from the sleek silhouettes of the majority of Sailor’s King of Pens lineup. Here, we have the same lacquering technique as the last one, called “Irogasane Sabinuri” (which means color stacking), giving it the rich, mottled appearance over an ebonite base.
The Urushi artist Wayo Shimamori has created these special Limited edition KOP Fountain pens in two colors using the Urushi technique of Trogasane Sabinuri and has signed and numbered the collection of 88 pieces each color.
