Sailor Profit Vs Sailor Nagasawa Proske

Recommended Posts

Sailor Nagasawa Proske and Sailor Profit Standard (also known in the West as 1911 Standard) are essentially the same pen model. But there are some differences including price so I thought I will make a quick comparison. The one difference is clear plastic on Nagasawa. It feels cheaper compared to Black plastic on Standard Sailor or clear plastic on King Pro Gear.

It may be my judgement is clouded by receiving my Nagasawa Proske with grip section already cracked. I think someone in the factory over tighten the pen.

Expensive pens that look cheap or understated are my preference so if it wouldnt be for a crack that would be just fine.

Converter in Nagasawa Proske is Rhutenium plated which is great but it is of lesser quality than original Sailor converter.

The only other differences are in the nib inscription Kobe and Nagasawa Pen Style Den on the cap band.

 

My Sailor 1911 Standard (or Profit Standard whatever you prefer) costed me £70. Nagasawa Proske £120 (£150 after I was hit with customs charge) so you pay twice the money for lesser quality pen. But it is rarer and I guess in the fountain pen world that matters.

I got myself an expensive pen that feels and looks cheap so Im happy with that. I wish I would go for medium fine nib on Nagasawa as fine is a bit too fine for me but I had Sailor In broad, medium, medium fine and Naginata Togi Medium so I wanted to see how fine writes.

I would say consider Nagasawa Proske but if you prefer better pen at lower price stick to Standard Profit or 1911 Standard.post-117416-0-70738500-1579997819_thumb.jpegpost-117416-0-11706400-1579998024_thumb.jpeg

I have a Nagasawa Proske in gold trim with a zoom nib. Quite like it.

 

I asked for the replacement section because of the cracks. And the replacement section has two same cracks as the first one!?

Does your pen has same two cracks as mine? I don’t mean injections moulding lines. Cracks are curved, one to the left other to the right as on picture two.

This is the model I also have in my hands since last Friday, also with a lovely, juicy Zoom nib. Got it from Ebay-Seller Cool-Japan.

 

Everything is fine with my Proske.

Funny, my sailor 1911S (black resin) cracked in the exact same place, in the exact same way, maybe 1 month into ownership.

 

But 4 years later now and the crack hasn't spread so its whatever I guess

I bought from the same seller. I suspect if you examine grip section with a magnifying glass you will find cracks.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
