  1. Wanted to present my current stable of Stylo Art pens. 1. Akebono/bokashi chinkin butterflies 2. Dragon maki-e 3. Pine tree and cranes maki-e The pen bodies are exclusive to Stylo Art and are large pens being slightly bigger than a Namiki Yukari but are lightweight. I believe the base material is plastic. The akebono chinkin pen has an amazing Pilot #15 nib custom ground by Yukio Nagahara to what is called an N-point. It writes a super smooth and juicy fat line at about 45 degree that gets more narrow as the pen angle is steepened. It's kinda a cross between
  2. Perhaps you have already seen the announcement of another 100th anniversary commemoration pen (actually, two), a KoP with Naginata nib. Links Instagram Press release Page on website Price: 165000 incl. tax Have you analyzed that a bit? The same pen with a normal KoP nib costs 83600. (Assuming that I didn't miss a feature own to this new pen, making the body more expensive than the normal version - it is always difficult to read on a mobile phone.) Let's think, the nib would be 20000, then the body is
  3. Here is what their recent Facebook post says: お客様各位: 誠に心苦しいお知らせをしなくてはなりません。 本日2月1日より長刀研ぎ万年筆と細美研ぎ万年筆の新規受注を一時休止させていただきます(受注再開は2018年6月頃を予定しております)。 ■「セーラーオリジナルペン先」製品の受注一時休止のお知らせ(PDF)  (長刀研ぎ万年筆と細美研ぎ万年筆)   And this is a machine translation of the above: "Dear customers: I really have to do a hard hearted announcement. Starting today February 1st we will temporarily suspend new orders for long-sharpened fountain pens and fine sharpening fountain pens (We will resume ordering around June 2018). ■ Notice of temporary suspension of orders for "Sailor's original pen tip" product (PDF) (Long-blade sha

    Sailor Specialty Nib History

    Is anyone aware when did sailor start making specialty nibs ? And did they introduce the whole lineup of nibs or did they do it gradually ? References are always a plus !
  5. 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!

    Three Stack Nib

    what is the possibility of finding a sailor king eagle on a secondary market, or even on a very special edition sailor that they might produce in the future? is it easier to ask a nib meister to stack 3 nibs to mimic the 3 stacked nib of a king eagle? if so how hard would it be? is it even possible to find someone (or know someone) who does such works? Interested in this topic, since i have been wanting one for quite some time now ...

    Sailor King Eagle Release

    Will sailor ever release the specialty nibs in the KOP model in the future (specially the king eagle)? what are you thought?
  8. Introduction Nobuyoshi Nagahara is a name to be reckoned with in the world of fountain pens. Nagahara-san recently retired from his position at Sailor, for whom he invented a number of exotic and interesting nib designs. His inventiveness and craftsmanship was unparalleled, and he will be greatly missed by all who take an interest in Japanese fountain pens. To commemorate the man and his achievements, Sailor released a pen commemorating his retirement. The pen is in the shape of one of the bamboo pens that he loved, and crafted towards the end of his career, using the traditional take-nuri

    Sailor Speciality Nibs

    I was planning to purchase a Sailor King of Pen with specialty nib but they are nowhere to be found online. What with the update? Is it true that they have stopped making those nibs completely or have put a temporary halt on these. I plan to buy Cross Music Emperor Nib and any help will be appreciated.
  10. So here I am, wanting to jump into Sailor Nagahara speciality nibs and asking for some wisdom. I have reduced my dilema to two "similar" nibs: the Cross Point and the King Eagle. They are similar in that they work on similar mechanical principles: 2 or 3 nibs welded on top of each other; what accounts for 1 or 2 "crosses" formed by the 4 or 6 tines respectively (if you know the nibs, you know what I mean by 'cross' in this case; if you don't know the nibs, just check Sailor's web page: http://sailorpen.com/nagahara-story.html) (I'm attaching a couple pics so you can see it). The differenc
