    New Sailor Kop Ebonite Finish

    Hi All, I saw this at Pen Boutique Tokyo the other day, they said it's the new Sailor KOP, does anyone have any information on this pen finish? My understanding is it's ebonite, is there any other pen with ebonite like this? Quite unique. Pen_Padawan
  3. Well my Sailor King of Pen arrived today and I thought I would share my thoughts and first impressions between that pen and my Pelikan M1000. First packaging, both pens come with nice packaging Pelikan comes with a rather large round plastic box and Sailor a more traditional square box. The Sailor edges out the Pelikan because it looks cleaner and won't take up as much storage space. Both pens look great, the nib on the Sailor looks looks a little more "custom". The Pelikan is a piston filled pen whereas the Sailor uses an ink converter, Pelikan wins out in this area. Now to the nuts and bolts, writing. Both pens were filled with Montblanc permanent blue ink and I writing on Rhodia paper. Writing in the normal position surprisingly the Pelikan lays out a crisper, fine and darker line then the Sailor. When the ink drys the Sailor looks to be not as deep a blue and slightly broader. The Pelikan is definitely wetter that the Sailor which is my personal preference. I'm a little new at this but I believe I can write with the sailor upside down (plastic side of the nib facing up, please let me know if this is not proper). The sailor lays down a fine line that is unbelievable. Once again very light but very fine line, about one third the width of the Pelikan. The sailor is scratchy in this configuration but what a fine line. The nib on the Pelikan is more flexible and broader lines are possible with the Pelikan, sometime though I noticed the nib seems to flex when a little side pressure is applied. The Pelikan lays down the same line regardless of the writing configuration, it isn't scratchy at all in any writing position. One small factor that I did notice was the Sailor needs to be posted pretty firmly or else the cap will not only come loose but it will fall off, no such problem with my Pelikan. Also the Pelikan only required a 3/4's a turn to remove the cap and the Sailor requires 2-1/2 turns to accomplish the same. I much prefer the Pelikan in that regard. Overall I prefer the Pelikan M1000 over the Sailor KOP for normal letter writing, if I want a pen that gives me some flexibility in my line widths the Sailor wins hands down. As I use these pens more I may update this review. Thanks, Bill Kiel
  4. In the last years I have written some reviews about four remarkable fountain pens. All reviews were written little after having acquired the FP. This reviews are about these FP: Parker Duofold Black Mosaic Graf von Faver Castell Classic Sailor King of Pen Pelikan M1005 Silver & Black Now, some months or some years later, having been able to use all my FP in a wide way, my perception about these FP has changed notably. Aesthetically I like them all four. Perhaps de simplicity of de Sailor KOP lines is in my opinion unbeatable. I also like very much the touch of the hard rubber. But if I must say something about writing, then I must recognise that the nib of my Parker Duofold is the best writer. I dont't like at all the GvFC nib. The Pelikan's one is very improvable. The nib of my Sailor KOP is wonderful... but has a problem: is a medium one, and for me it's too much broad. Afer all, when I write in a good paper, such as a Clairefontaine, the Parker extrafine nib és incredible. In conclusion, these are now my scores: Parker Duofold Black Mosaic: 9/10 Graf von Faver Castell Classic: 6/10 Sailor King of Pen: 9/10 Pelikan M1005 Silver & Black: 7/10
  5. Hello everyone, I'm setting my sights on some larger pens. I think too much computer gaming at a young age made my hand a little sensitive, so I'm looking for something that manufacturers seem to reserve for their more expensive models - a girthier section. So I'm looking at (I have some credit on JM's site, so I'm choosing from their stock): an Omas 360 a Sailor KOP a Pelikan M1000 a Danitrio Takumi or Hakkaku (and a Nakaya dorsal fin, maybe?) and the recently released Bexley's OC 2014, which I can't yet buy I had a chance to handle a 360, and I mean that, strictly: it was uninked. I found it very comfortable to hold. The Sailor and the Pelikan have the appeal of those unique, enormous nibs. I generally prefer lighter pens, and the Pelikan is on the heavier side of these pen selections, but excellent balance, if it's there, can make weight less of a factor. The Pilot Custom 823 and Nakaya Desk Pen feel just fine, despite weighing 20+ grams uncapped. Danitrio is relatively unfamiliar, but I like the shape of these two pens. I put a maybe on the Dorsal Fin because looking at the pictures it feels like the nib is just a little too small for the pen's proportions. Pictures dramatize everything, though. So I'm just looking for thoughts on these pens. My goal is to obtain a pen that's highly comfortable and has the kind of nib qualities you might (ideally) expect from one of a manufacturer's premium pens. I like butter. Thank you for reading
