AP Limited Editions presents The Red Octopus; a delightful feature in Taka Maki-e with intricate and interesting accents of black-lip Pearl Oyster Shell bits on the Octopus cupules, and Abalone Shell bits to craft the eyes.

Every turn of this fine writing instrument captures the full spectrum of Maki-e lacquering techniques: sprinkles of Gold powder, fine Balin shell bits and burnished and polished Black Urushi lacquer finished in tsuya-age technique to give it a mirror-like shine.
