Sailor Possibly Being Bought Out

I wonder why they disassociated themselves with certain retailers? Were they upset that companies were importing their pens and inks through secondary channels and undercutting the abhorrent Westerner tax that Sailor and Pilot (and weirdly, Lamy) all have? Such practices also allowed their full range to reach western countries, while they sometimes only want to release certain things outside of Asia.

I remember at the time that Goulet Pens got dropped as a retailer because they weren't carrying Sailor's entire line.  I don't know if that's changed or not.

Wow, it's a challenge for any retailer to carry their entire line! Most don't seem to.

Yeah, I had wondered why Goulet Pens was being singled out....

I'd own many more Japanese pens and inks if they sold them at Japanese prices abroad. Next time I visit Japan I'll get more than a few...
