A beautiful ocean sunset at the end of the day, marking the passage of time and showing the promise of a "new tomorrow" at down.
The Sailor Sunset Over the Ocean is a special edition Professional Gear fountain pen that features a metashine ocean blue barrel and cap, complemented by silver-plated accents. The contrasting red coloured end cap features the Sailor anchor logo.
Japanese pen designs often take their inspiration from the natural world, and the Sunset Over the Ocean is a prime example. A deep resonant blue represents the ocean water, and both cap and barrel are infused with silver color sparkles to represent the setting sun glittering over the waves. The setting sun itself is represented by the red finials on the cap top and barrel.
The Sunset Over the Ocean model will be produced for a limited time.
Since the establishment in 1911, the Sailor Pen Co. has been proudly maintaining its belief in the importance of precision writing instruments. Still today, they offer the discerning customer technical perfection and writing quality. This model – The King Professional Gear has a selection of 21K gold nibs (the same as on the King of Pens) and a unique design with a cut-away cap and inlaid Sailor anchor logo on the top.
All the nibs of the King Professional Gear are made of 21 carat gold, which gives them a very smooth feel on paper. The 21 carat gold, but also the polishing of the tip of the nib in iridium which protects the gold, make this large nib an exceptional piece in the world of gold nibs. In this size of large gold nibs for large pens, the fine size and sizes below do not exist: the length of the nib would make a FINE (or even extra-fine) nib too fragile.
In general, Japanese nib sizes are always narrower than European standards.
