14K Solid Gold Music Nib Fountain Pen
You really gotta love these Japanese pens and their awesome nibs. I got this pen at a stationery shop which is also where I got my Pilot Custom Heritage 92. I was a little hesitant to order it at first because of the color. I don’t have any Sapporo pens with this particular color, and i researched about the pen before getting one of these. This very sapporo or pro gear slim was limited edition color for very short period of time and sailor does not produce it anymore.
Order Made Production: Not Available in the Catalog
Nib is tested and working fine
FEELING OF USING THE PEN:
I like the simplicity of the design of this pen. The edges are flat, the trims are simple. Gold trims fit the white acrylic pretty well, the pen looks clean and beautiful in a classic kind of way. The section is pretty short, I guess it’s proportioned to the length of the barrel, but I imagine that people with large hands will find the length of the section a bit too short for comfortable writing. If you don’t like to hold the pen too close to the nib, you’ll most likely end up gripping the threads of the barrel, not very comfortable.
APPEARANCE & DESIGN:
A lot of Sailor pens are cigar-shaped with black or colored resin barrels and gold or Gold trim, but the Pro Gear Line switches that up a little with flattened ends. I'm a fan of this design as it breaks up the monotony of the standard cigar-shaped, black-and-gold-trimmed pen. This particular pen is limited edition white color with Gold trim. Paired with the flattened ends, I think this combination makes for a slightly more modern presentation while still being subtle enough for even the most conservative boardroom.
I like the ring around the cap band because it’s probably the only thing that kind of stands out when the pen is capped. I like the font they used to engrave SAILOR Japan Founded 1911. Kinda reminds me of fonts used in printing money. The engraving is crisp and looks really good. The clip’s design is also simple and nondescript, but I don’t like that it’s not so springy. It’s hard to slip anything under it. I certainly won’t be able to clip it on my pen cases.
When you uncap the pen, you’ll be greeted with this pretty little thing. Well, without the ink coating it, of course.
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: SMOOTHEST NIBS
This Sapporo has a mono-tone 14kt nib. It has a single slit, a round breather hole, and is engraved with: 1911, 14K, the Sailor anchor, and in a gold-plated strip, some flourishes. The nib looks thin and long, which is pretty, and I do prefer Sailor's two tone nibs to their single tone nibs, which are more common.
Since it's a music nib, almost like a calligraphy nib, thickness of the strokes depends on how you hold the pen and how the nib is aligned on the paper. If the nib is pointing to the left, the vertical strokes are thin and horizontal strokes are broad. When the nib is pointing upwards, vertical strokes are broad, and horizontal strokes are thin.
This music nib slides over paper smoothly. Ink flow is great and allows its user to enjoy an easy and pleasant writing experience. Ink flow is still very good when you write the any positions. The nib is not stiff and with a bit of force, you can open up the slit just a bit for a slightly, almost not noticeable, thicker stroke.
This is the smoothest fountain pen nib I've ever used. I love drawing with it.
WHY SO EXPENSIVE & HARD TO FIND:
This model was sold only very short period of time as a limited edition in Japan only, which explains why they are so highly valued in the west. Even in Japan they are difficult to find since Sailor no longer makes them. But they are such tough pens, the ones that do turn up are usually still in great condition. These are workhorse pens. I loved that this pen’s nib is already an excellent writer right outside the box. No tuning was needed for it. It wrote very smoothly and consistently upon first inking. I even forgot to flush it with water before using, and it still wrote perfectly from the get go. It’s satisfying, to say the least. It is really smooth and the flow of ink is excellent.
