Sailor White Russian L.e.

Recommended Posts

This beauty arrived today! Ive not been tempted by any others in the cocktail series, but I had wanted one of Sailors translucent Walnut coloured pens. This has (I think) the same colour body and section and finial as the Walnut, but with a rich creamy beige solid-coloured cap - and is half the price.

 

Its quite difficult to judge the cap colour from photos, but in life its exactly like cream on a coffee - I think theyve done a great job with the colours on this pen. Plus they go so well with the rich gold of Sailors nibs - love it.

 

It is a Europe-only exclusive - The Writing Desk in the UK has a good deal on it at the moment.

The barrel colour reminds me of amber,... apt for Russia. Pro-Gear Slim size or standard Pro-Gear?

Congrats & enjoy in good health.

Thank you, Driften and Tinta! It is the Pro-Gear Slim, hence the cheaper price, but I find that size perfectly comfortable and I’ve got quite large hands for a woman.

A very nice looking pen, congrats!

 

Moranga in Berlin still has one, I think. I was dancing around it for a while and still can only barely manage to NOT get it as I have to be a bit more frugal at the moment. So, please, can someone get it so that I do not have to think about it anymore! :lticaptd:

Congratulations! How is your feeling about that pen right now? :)

 

I'm also thinking about this pen. Once I saw it in person, but didn't fall in love (lucky for my wallet) but... I feel more and more at I want a brown pen and something different ;) And ok, white russian is great drink and I like it (as I'm not 'drinks' person hahaha)

I do like Walnuts Sailor :)

 

I have decided to go for another Sailor (I have to, both with medium nib, little too broad for me, need EF or F, but they are great!). And I almost decided for 1911s demo (I saw only pictures but... soon my retailer will have one, just for me, I guess it will help to decide but... still I have some doubts - maybe White russian ?(found store in eu). What to do? :lol: :lticaptd: B) ;)

Thanks, Nikaa (sorry, only just seen your post!)

 

Well, it’s still a lovely pen, still great Sailor quality, what’s not to love?

 

But if you saw it and didn’t fall in love, maybe it’s not the one for you. Pensachi always have a great variety of models, have you looked at their site?

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
