I received this unusual Sailor Pocket Pen. It was leaking between the metal and plastic part of its grip section but I managed to unscrew the metal part and seal it with shellac.

The nib looks a bit like Lamy 2000 but most unusual is the clip.

It looks like it is unfinished, made out of one thin piece of metal that is bent. It fits nicely if you clip it in your jeans but it is not tight enough to be secure in your shirt pocket.


It is very small pen. Here it is compared to Sailor 1911 Standard, Pilot Elite 95s and Lamy Al Star.

Nib is 14k but very wet. Too wet for my liking. Apart from 14k stamped on it it is plain.
Pen is black, metal and silver colour. The only branding is Sailor engraving on the cap.


It is the smallest of me Long/Short format Japanese Pocket pens.

If anyone knows anything about this Sailor model I would be most interested. Here is another photo of the weird clip. A14F42D5-5B59-44D9-BDC3-17E330B0AF49.jpeg

Thanks. To be honest I never intended it to be a collection but it just happened. I like this pen design.C904F913-81D0-4452-B935-AB16EED2A90B.jpeg
