The LS7 Mitsubachi (Honey Bee) was launched in 2003. It is a three dimensional, very high relief composition in pastel shades of cream, brown and gold. It shows honey bees at work producing honey over the honeycombe. There is a honey bee on the cap, two on the barrel and the Queen honeybee on the gripping section near the nib. The consummately executed design shows incredible detail of the high relief bees down to the minute details of the veins in their wings. The Honey Bee composition, to our knowledge, is novel for fountain pens.

The Maki-E artist is Shogetsu Mitani. He is famous for his work on various Japanese objects including tea containers. Some of his creations have been purchased by the Japanese government to be used for ceremonial occasions.

The LS7 Mitsubachi is the first creation of Shogetsu Mitani on fountain pens.

The Maki-E technique of the Mitsubachi is Shishiai-togidashi. It employs high relief Taka Maki-E continuously combined with Togidashi. This technique requires the highest level of skill.

The Mitsubachi emphasizes the high relief Shishiai Maki-E technique.

There is a choice for the canvas of the Mitsubachi. The Parker Duofold Centennial, one of the most celebrated pen models of all time and the new Classic Legend full size fountain pen.
