    Sailor new release

    Are there any rumors on what sailor will produce next on their fp lineup, specially after the introduction of the 400 limited edition naginata KOP ? Are there any rumors for more specialty nibs on the KOP model ? Or anything unique for their anniversary maybe ? Since sailor has been really active these days!
  2. I have heard that sailor’s nibmeister Yukio Nagahara retired, i was wondering what would be the future of sailor like (as a company know for their amazing nibs). Will their specialty nibs develop, or would the nagahara nibs never be produced again due to the retirement (king cobra , eagle ,...).I want to hear your thoughts and references regarding the topic!
  3. I have an opportunity to purchase a Sailor 1911L with a Saibi-Togi nib. I'm not familiar with this, but is it really much different from a regular 'extra-fine' nib? Does anyone know where I can go to find a writing sample comparison? Thanks!
  4. My boss is an artist and I let him play with my pens periodically. He recently inherited an MB 149 but it's in the shop. He said to me he should give me two bills and let me find him something that's big, with a broad flexy nib he can use like a brush. I told him that $200.00 was pathetic. Then I gave him a list of web sites to look at - the usual enablers - and told him he should go to the San Francisco show and handle a few pens...just to see what he likes to hold. But just for funsies, what pens meet his criteria? I use itty-bitty ringtops; he has big hands and wants something that could do
  5. When I read descriptions of the Sailor Specialty Nibs, I believe I understand what each can do. However, I don't understand who would want to use them, other than those writing characters which are traditionally written using brushes. If you are writing in a language that uses the Latin alphabet, how would you use a Nagahara nib that gives different line thickness depending on the writing angle? David
  6. Hi, Lately I've been obsessing over the Sailor specialty nibs. But, I owned a Sailor with a Naginata Togi nib and didn't really like it. My current obsession is over the Cross Point. It looks like a really cool and versatile nib, but, dang they're expensive. If I go through nibs.com and get a Realo (seems like a piston fill would be wise since these nibs are super wet) plus a Cross Point I'm looking at over $600. A concord nib is much cheaper, but the video I watched on it made it sound super scratchy. So, have any of you tried these nibs? What are your thoughts? I realize these are reall
  7. Hello FPN!! I always liked fountain pens; for years I have only written with one. But it was only about a year or two ago I REALLY got the fountain pen fever. As in buying pens that cost as much as a regular day of work, and having no place to put them, and walking around everyday carrying 4 or five of them. lately, my EDC has about 15 pens... But, I digress. So, I wanted to talk about this amazing pen I just got in the mail a couple a days ago. I always read a lot of good things about Sailor, and was really interested in trying one of their specialty nibs, but they were so expensive!! So, one
