In a very unfortunate event at Aesthetic Bay Singapore on 15 October 2015, 3 very exquisite Namiki fountain pens were stolen. I am posting this up so all you out there in the fountain pen community and beyond can be aware of this and help to nab the thieves. And if you have stolen the pens and are reading this right now, shame on you!

The stolen pens are:


Here is the statement from Mr Tan Fong Kum, Managing Director of Aesthetic Bay, on the stolen pens:

Hi All,
Re: 3 Namiki pens were stolen from Aesthetic Bay
Please take note that 3 pens were stolen from Aesthetic Bay on the 15 Oct 2015.
-Namiki Limited Edition Emperor Setsugekka Fountain Pen #63/99
-Namiki Limited Edition Emperor Polar Bear Fountain Pen #94/99
-Namiki Limited Edition Yukari Royale Nyoutan Namazu (CatFish) #198/200.
In the midst of distracting the sales staff, the 3 pens were stolen. Therefore please be careful if someone offers to sell these pens without box and papers.
The box and certificates are all with us.
We have made a police report. Pilot Singapore &Japan are also aware of this. These numbers would be registered as stolen items in their archive.
Should anyone has any information on these pens, please feel free to inform us. We will reward you accordingly.
Thank you.

    This theft is horrible, but also rather stupid, as the thief will almost certainly be caught when an attempt is made to sell the pens. No one is going to buy any of these without box and papers. I hope that Aesthetic Bay recovers the pens soon.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
