Sailor Pro Gear Pillow Book Fountain Pen

Sailor Pro Gear Pillow Book Fountain Pen, midnight sky in summer - the night, moonlit of course! It's beautiful when fireflies are dancing everywhere in mazy flight. The Pillow Book is a famous collection of essays written by Sei Shonagon (966-1017) whilst she was in the service of Empress Teishi.  It was thought to be a way for her to express her innermost thoughts and feelings which she was unable to express publicly due to her lowly position in court. Sailor Pen has skillfully created the colour of the sky that she described in this essay.

About Sailor Pen Japan

Sailor Pen Japan was founded in 1911 by Kyugoro Sakata, an engineer from the historic naval port of Hiroshima in Japan, who was introduced to a Fountain Pen brought from England by a sailor friend. He was determined to produce a finely crafted Japanese writing instrument with the highest specification and writing experience. The company was named Sailor Pen with the aspiration of expanding this home grown name, Sailor Pen, internationally like the voyages of a Sailor. Sailor Pen became the first company to produce Fountain Pens for domestic Japanese market and it is credited to be one of the oldest established pen companies in Japan. Sailor Pen has continued to maintain its heritage of quality and technical excellence over more than a 100 years since then. Today, Sailor Pens are remembered by any avid fountain pen users as the gold standard in Japanese fountain pen nib making from its late nib artisan, Nagahara Nobuyoshi 長原宣義. Many nib designs by Sailor Pen are hotly sought after by collectors for its extraordinary writing ability like the Sailor Concorde nib which allows one to write in both fine nib and brush strokes font style on just one fountain pen nib by turning it upside down. Sailor Pen is also well known for making Japanese makie fountain pens which are usually made by master Japanese artisans in Kaga  makie style. Notable Sailor Limited Edition fountain pens made to commemorate its 100th Anniversary in Arita, Sailor Limited Edition Noto Nogoro Fountain pens and Nagahara Nobuyoshi’s Retirement Pens are just some of the many popular fountain pens made by the Japanese pen manufacturer based in Hiroshima.
