This new Sailor Professional Gear Autumn Sky is the second in the Pillow book series and is the follow-up model to the very popular “Midnight Sky”. Inspired by the Autumn Sky as described in the Pillow Book - a famous collection of essays by Sei Shonagon 966-1017 whilst in service of the Empress Teishi. In these stories, a humble servant girl describes a number of special colours which are seasonally related.
The PG Slim is a smaller version of the Professional Gear fountain pen with 14k gold nib. Also known as the "Sapporo". Please note that Sailor nibs are a finer than on most European-made pens. Therefore, if you want a fine point order a medium etc.
Cartridge/converter filling mechanism (supplied)
What we like:
We love the story behind the pen evoking a sense of timelessness.
"In the Autumn the evening sky is the most beautiful. The sky shines red as the sun sinks over the mountains. A string of wild geese on the horizon ......It goes without saying"
