AP Limited Editions offers collectors Perfect Writing Instruments that are also stunning works of Heritage Art. The inspiration for each pen is beautifully conveyed in the story that accompanies it.

The Collections are grouped by distinct Heritage Art techniques. Within each Heritage Art Collection, there are different series: The Connoisseur and The Writer which feature pens of different sizes and levels of artistic detail.

The Connoisseur

The Connoisseur features our most exclusive and exquisite range of pens that showcase the highest level of artistry achievable in Maki-e. The pens in The Connoisseur are larger in size and are offered in eye dropper or our proprietary bulk filler piston filling mechanism. The edition size is always limited to 9 pens in each theme. The pens are equipped with large 18K Gold nibs available in Fine, Medium and Broad nib widths. These pens are authored by the most honored and revered artists of Japanese Maki-e Art. They are true heirlooms worthy of being handed down from generation to generation.

The Writer

The Writer is an exemplary work of art in a smaller sized pen. These pens are equipped with twist converters or our proprietary bulk piston filling mechanism. The pens are painstakingly handcrafted by renowned artists and masters of Japanese Maki-e. The pens are available with 18K Gold nibs of a smaller size in various widths to include Super Extra Fine, Extra Fine, Fine, Medium and Broad. Some of our Writers come with clips while others are without clips. We also offer Roller Ball pens in this range. We offer a nib customization service to our collectors.
