Marbled Sailor Pro Gear Mini Slim Fountain Pen, Bleu Ciel
Three companies dominate Japanese fountain pen making, all established in the 1910's and 1920’s, and all motivated by their common desire to develop a superior Japanese counterpart to their Western competitors such as Waterman and Parker. Ironically, the latter companies have lost their once top dog positions in the 'fountain pen world', while Sailor, Pilot and Platinum today represent the Holy Trinity of excellence in writing utensils. The main and defining reason for this accolade is the fact that all three companies supervise their production from beginning to end within their very own factories. No subcontracting ensures total quality control, and private ownership protects their original vision and enthusiasm for pen making.
Presented here, Sailor's special edition compact Slim Mini Pro Gear with a marbled-effect barrel. Offered in what we call the goldilocks of nib sizes, Medium-Fine, this unique size, nor too fine, and not too medium, is perfectly balanced in every way and possesses the depth and complexity of a well-worn nib. Smoothness, spring and bounce are all adjectives which can be used to describe this superb nib type which promises excellent and generous ink flow. Highly recommended.
