Sailor Zaimoku Quince Wood Fountain Pen

 

The Sailor Precious Woods, Japanese Quince Wood,  is a gorgeous light brown pen with a slight lustre which highlights the very straight grain of this wood. Japanese Quince is often used for writing instruments such as these, as well as for furniture and building materials. The wood surface of the fountain pen is specially treated to prevent staining and discoloration.

The Sailor Zaimoku Quince Wood Fountain Pen measures at just over 5" when capped. It will be a comfortable fit for most users, and utilizes Sailor's reliable cartridge-converter system, which allows it to be filled with either bottled fountain pen ink or with Sailor brand cartridges. A very solid "click" can be heard when putting the cap on. This makes an almost airtight seal between the cap and barrel, which helps prevents early dry-out of the nib.  Each Sailor Zaimoku Quince Wood Fountain Pen is fitted with a 14kt gold nib.

Note the intricate engraving on the Sailor Zaimoku Quince Wood Fountain Pen ring band, shown here in a close-up view. You can also see the obvious grain lines of the Japanese Quince Wood in the barrel detail shown with a slight element of texture.

About Sailor Pen Japan

Sailor Pen Japan was founded in 1911by 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.
