It's also available in orange and ivory at the same price as the black Professional Gears.
Here's a handwritten review of the pen. It reads:
Sailor Professional Gear
-yellow w/ rhodium trim
medium nib (21kt gold)
ink: Private Reserve American Blue
first purchased: 5/2008 from Pear Tree Pens
It's taken me about 7 months to do this review-- d'oh! I'm actually planning to exchange the medium nib for a broad one. The Sailor nibs (or this one) run about 1 size finer than its Western counterpart. It's smooth though :-) And it really seems like to like PR American Blue ink! I liked this Sailor so much, I wound up buying 2 more! An ivory Pro Gear and a pink Sapporo (aka Pro Gear Slim).
Filling system: cartridge or converter
Appearance: Lovely! The yellow is a bright, cheery color. Section, blind cap and cap-jewel are black. Cap is topped by Sailor's anchor logo. Nib is single-toned rhodium-plated with "1911" logo. Cap threads have picked up stains. Ah well.
Hope this review sheds some light on the Professional Gear series!
