Namiki - Fighting Cocks

















This pen is the crown in my collection.


















There are 2 fighting cocks facing each other. One on the cap, the other on the barrel.




















Like the Goldfish and 3 Winged Birds, this is a remake of old design.


















It has lots of fine details on the feathers.

















It is painted by Namiki's master artist, Kyusai Yoshida. The only piece in my collection painted by him.

I acquire this pen by chance. I actually ordered a Namiki Lovebird. And when I went to collect it, the sales person presented me this piece. I immediately recognized the quality of the artwork. And it is much better than the Lovebirds. Due to limited fund, I giveup the Lovebirds for this. And I never regreted it.

  1. Thanks. I'm surprise few people appreciate this piece. Maybe those pictures don't do justice. In fact this piece is rather rare. I never another piece in the market.
