$1170 vs $450 for the Wancher, quite a $$ jump.

I am sure there will be others in the pipeline.

Sailor needs to slow down on the special editions and maybe drop their prices to be more competitive with Platinum and Pilot.

 

Getting kind of insane for rock hard gold nib pens.

 

their ink is quickly becoming a scam in terms of pricing too.

The sad part is that their pricing in Japan is much more reasonable. Nibs.com just announced they will have the striped ebonite KOP soon... at $1200. They were $700 or less in Japan. I realize they have to deal with import expenses, but that markup is absurd.

> Sailor needs to slow down on the special editions
This is certainly not a project by Sailor, they only deliver the inner parts of the pen, I guess.

There were LEs of Montblanc of 30000 pens. Sailor can still do many to reach this level.

MB is not exactly a pricing model I want sailor to be aiming for  :lol: I mean, at the very least, for a grand you are getting more than a gold nib in plastic, but that's not huge praise. MB is marketing madness. I want Sailor to be Aprilia, not Ducati.
