The pen arrived in the nice box as you can see. The presentation is excellent for this pen. A bottle of ink and a cleaning cloth came with the package.

Here is the pen. Briarwood has a nice feel to it and the pen is well balanced unposted. I don't post pens in general; I will never post on this pen as I don't want to risk marrring the finish.

I appreciate the details Sailor incorporated in this pen.

The nib is M. A very smooth nib. No issue there. I did the dip test with WM Florida Blue. Based on the dip test, the nib / feed is not too wet, not too dry. Well controlled flow.

This is a great addition to my other briarwood fountain pens.

Beautiful!

Congratulations, you have an impressive collection. The pen in the group photo, third from the top, is that a yaku-sugi cedarwood pen?

How do the briar from Platinum and Sailor compare?

Yes, the 3rd one is Platinum #3776 Yakusugi. I am planning to do a review on this pen in the near future.
Both Sailor and Platinum's briarwood pens are not treated with some lacqer. So, I can feel the natural wood texture. The fact each pen is unique is very interesting. Both Sailor and Platinum pens are great to hold in the hand and I am hard pressed to pick a favorite, as they are all great writers based on the dip test. Nibs are excellent as well.

Beautiful pens, and the Sailor Profit is just stunning. I think my favorite thing about Sailor pens, besides that wonderfully smooth nib, is the cap band. There's something special about it. It's like jewelry, it's so beautiful, and the Sailor Profit cap band and clip are even better.

Incredible. I have quite a number of Sailor pens, but wow, if I ever won one of these on
an auction, I still would not bear to use it... It's so lovely. I also like the Yakusugi... I'm
starting low on these wood pens - I just got a Chizusugi Sapporo.

Thank you for your nice review and good photos. The pen has no lacquer. So we can enjoy the aging.
Mine has become darker now .

Would you mind posting a picture of your pen, along with comments on how often you have been using it (or how many months you've been using it)? I would be interested in seeing how the briarwood ages with regular usage (or infrequent usage over the course of many months or years).

Wow. Beautiful pen. I got in to the idea of fountain pens because they were more Ecological. Wood pens like this enhance that connection with nature. Where did you buy, and what other wood pens are highlights of your collection?

Thank you. Those pictures show this pen will "age" very gracefully. Not too dark; not too light; but, just right.

Beautiful pen and I have really liked how this pen has aged. A nice before and after shot.





rbadger332 - maybe you can make a pen out of the rolling pin instead of using it as a weapon. :roflmho:

There are some variations in the grain pattern as expected in the natural wood product. My new addition is slightly darker than my first one. Both of them are engraved with a serial number (one of 1000, that is).
