Sailor Ebonite King of Pens Fountain pen, Black
Something of a pen urban myth, The King of Pens or KOP as it's called by pen people, is more than just an expensive pen; it is the ultimate writing experience. While top-end pens are usually garish and overloaded with detail - the ebonite body is understated and the quiet luxury one can expect from Japanese minimalism.
While Sailor already produces top of the range fountain pens as a baseline - KOP does represent another level of writing performance. The nib, in 21k gold, almost paintbrush-like, possesses natural, organic flexibility and softness under hand. It offers a generous amount of line variation - an almost fude-like brush effect feel making it an excellent pairing for use with coloured inks where 'shading effect' is desired. Exceptional writing quality with amazing smoothness; no pressure needed for a very generous and reliable ink flow.
