Sailor Asa Tsuyu Limited Edition Fountain Pen

The Sailor Asa Tsuyu Limited Edition Fountain Pen depicts the delicate moment when daylight breaks and the sun reflects off of the morning dew.  This fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer and comes standard with a 21k solid gold rhodium-plated King of Pen nib. The King of Pen is well-known as Sailor's largest fountain pen and is an ideal canvas for detailed artwork and Maki-e techniques.  Available in only 33 numbered pieces worldwide. The King of Pen is handcrafted from ebonite and then finished with up to twelve coats of rich Urushi ivory lacquer.  Black Urushi is applied as the base, and then blue abalone (raden) pieces are embedded.  The Artist, Wataru Kurotobi then finishes the pen with blue, green, and white Urushi to create a color gradation using the Hakeme-nuri technique, which mimics daybreak cascading on dew-covered plants. After a final grinding and polishing, silver powder is used to make drops of dew.  Texturally you can feel the blades of grass and drops of dew against the smooth Urushi, mimicking the dimensional aspects of the natural world. Artist Wataru Kurotobi finishes each Asa Tsuyu pen with his signature in kanji and the limited edition number. Sailor's King of Pen Asa-tsuyu Limited Edition fountain pen comes packaged in a wooden presentation box.  The pen accepts either a standard Sailor converter or Sailor's cartridges. The Sailor 21k nib is renowned for its smooth writing capabilities.  This rhodium-plated nib matches the rhodium clip of the Asa-tsuyu.

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 homegrown name, Sailor Pen, internationally like the voyages of a Sailor.

Sailor Pen became the first company to produce Fountain Pens for the 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.
