Sailor Urushi Akebono Nuri Fountain Pen
Sailor Urushi Akebono Nuri Fountain Pen, combining urushi lacquer finish with the popular 1911 Full-Size body, the pen in the Rei Urushi-nuri series is a favourite for many pen aficionados. The Akebono gradation technique on this pen is a speciality of the artist Masanora Sumi, who has over forty years of experience as a master craftsman in the traditional craft centre of Wajima. Each pen is individually hand-finished by the artist, and no two pens will ever be exactly alike.
The pen has a 21 karat gold nib. The pens in the Rei Urushi-nuri series utilize Sailor's convenient cartridge-converter system - the provided converter allows for the use of any bottled fountain pen ink, and the pens can also fill using easy-to-use Sailor brand ink cartridges. Each pen ships in a special presentation box and also includes a fabric pen pouch.
Sailor Pen is dedicated to producing the most elegant and desirable Writing Instruments obtainable. Since 1911 Sailor Pen maintains a long heritage of quality and technical excellence and perfection.
The pens and nibs are made exclusively in Sailor´s own factory in Hiroshima Japan using the best quality materials available. Sailor pens are regarded to many as the best writing instruments available in the world.

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 加賀 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.
