IIRC the nibmeister who created that nib has retired.

Last I read, there were no plans to release cross point or king Eagle in KOP. If they were to be redone the thinking is it would be for a very limited pen.

The new blue ebonite KOP has Naginata nibs again in all 3 tipping widths.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Unlikely.

True, the special edition KOP that they released with a Naginata nib made me hopeful that they might introduce the king eagle again but by a limited number . I tried to contact sailor but did not get a definite answer of even introducing it on a special edition :(

How much would you pay for that knowledge, even if the answer is "no"? (Just to be clear, I'm not offering it for sale, and I don't have it to sell.)
