Info On Sailor "sparkling Blue"?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

Pen lust is a problem. It's even more of a problem when you can't find the dang thing.

I found the photo at the bottom of the post on Pinterest a while back and have *needed* this pen ever since. It's supposedly a Sailor Sapporo in "Sparkling Blue" and I, for the life of me, haven't been able to find more information than that, though it's very likely a simple case of not knowing where to look.


Can somebody point me in the right direction? Does anybody happen to have info on it?

Not entirely sure about this but it might be one of the LEs released in 2008 (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/59516-sailor-sapporo-le-new-colors/) apparently called "Sky Blue"


Nibs.com also have a similar one which they just called light blue? (http://www.pensinasia.com/new/product/sailor/sailor_sapporo_light_blue_rhodium_trim_fountain_pen_5566.html)


Thing with Sailor is that they have so many LE or store exclusives most of which never reach the Western Market it's hard to keep track of them. They regularly have store exclusive colors for famous stationery shops in Japan and some of western retailers who have a history with them. If it is a store exclusive in Japan rarely every would they really have a name most just call them the Sailor model + Store name. Eg the Sailor 1911 Beni which is a red and black 1911 exclusively for the Beni Stationery store, the "japanese name" given to it from Japanese bloggers was Akajiku which just mean red barrel.

Unfortunately, I think Alteyz has the right of it. This pen is substantially darker than Fresca, and predates the announcement by at the very least several months. Thanks, guys. I appreciate it.
