Need Help Identifying This Sailor Sakura Pen!

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys! I need some help identifying the model of a pen that I recently purchased.

 

 

Here's what I know: this is a 2010 Sailor Prime Minister Sakura Nagare commissioned by the prime minister for unpensioned WWII veterans.

 

I need some help identifying what model it is. It was listed as a Profit, but I dont believe the seller knew exactly what model it was. I have found that others like this are the King of Pen model, but I believe I have also seen other sizes. I would also love to hear any other information (ie how many were made, how many different sizes there were, etc etc).

 

 

Any help identifying exactly what I have would be greatly appreciated!

Could it be a Sailor Sapphoro (also known as a pro-gear slim)?

 

Actually no, here it is listed on sale on a UK website

Is it this King of pen?

Yes I was able to identify it as a limited 2010 Sailor King of Pen "Prime Minister's Gift" Sakura Nagare. It was a gift from the Prime Minister to veterans of WWII who were not pensioned either because they werent in Japan or a POW

There are two sizes as I know. One in Pro Gear size and one in KOP size. Pricewise it's on par with other Makie pens, around $1000 for the KOP sized one. I have little idea of how many are made but it's not super super rare. It has little exposure in the US/EU but I have seen several from Chinese vendors with pretty consistent pricing. Definitely not as rare as some of the old urushi KOPs.

It is beautiful.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
