Sailor Cherry Blossom Manyo Fountain Pen and Ink Set
The Sailor Professional Gear Slim Manyo is a series of special edition Fountain Pen Sets with limited availability. Each colourway is inspired by sets of complementing Manyo ink colours evocative of Japanese nature elements.
This delicately sweet chromatic combination draws inspiration from the evocative Japanese cherry blossoms as seen on the milky Sakura pink of the body, while the semi-transparent Konagi blue accents give it a vibrant kick. The Cherry Blossom design on the pen cap's finial is what we could call the "cherry on the cake" of this delightfully designed special edition fountain pen.
On the writing front this pen features a medium fine 14k gold nib. Whereas nearly all pen makers worldwide subcontract their nibs to specialist factories, the Japanese - namely Pilot, Sailor and Platinum - produce theirs in house, making truly amazing nibs of great smoothness and weightless feel. Gold nibs are superior to steel ones; gold, being a softer and more malleable metal, will shape beautifully to one's personal hand(writing) to feel as though it was tailor-made. It can be kept for life and possibly be amongst one's most treasured possessions.
Please bear in mind Japanese nibs run on the finer side in comparison to European ones.
