Could it be the prototype for this pen? which Sailor has done many times before.

(this picture is form FPoJ P.349)

No, I don't think so. The form looks different. I will try to ask Sailor directly.

It would be extremely unusual to find any prototype models in the wild. Some models assumed to be prototypes, limited or special editions were short-lived and did not make it into formal catalogues and should not to be confused with a real prototype.


There are prototypes in FPOJ. However, Mas Sunami has longstanding relationships with Pilot, Sailor, and Platinum that has allowed him access to these models. 


There are a good number of one of a kind models made by smaller makers especially in the 1930s, 1950s, and into the 1960s. Most recently Nakaya and Danitrio produced a few for sale. They are not prototypes.

@stan thank you for explaining. I still have a lot to learn.


Sorry about misusing an important word. 


I’d be curious to find out what model it is.

It had a name: "Profit Long". People at the FB group "Fountain pens" knew/had it. This one is called Sailor Profit Long Mosaic, apparently.


And Sailor sent me the following information today:

The pictured pen was an LE from 2005 with the name "Long Mosaic 長刀 Fountain Pen".

Other Long Mosaic pens had a KCE (King Cobra Emperor), a King Eagle Emperor or a CKE (Cross Concorde Emperor) nib. There were other nib choices too - but they don't have the information anymore.
