Special edition of the inspired by the description of the summer sky in Japan as observed by Sei Shonagon 966-1017 whilst in service of the Empress Teishi.  This fountain pen has rhodium plated trim and a 21k gold nib rhodium plated.

This pen is a spectacular deep translucent blue colour, following the theme of a famous Japanese collection of essays (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. This first one is the unique Midnight Sky as witnessed in the Summer months in Japan. 

Comes fitted with a Sailor converter.

Please note that Sailor nibs are finer than on most European-made pens. Therefore, if you want a fine point order a medium etc. Converter filling mechanism (supplied).

The Sailor Professional Gear measures 12.8cm capped, 11.6cm uncapped, 14.8cm posted and weighs 20g. It is the same girth as the Sailor 1911 Classic and shares the same gripping section. It can be thought of as a 1911 with the ends cut square.

Key Facts:

  • Rhodium plated 21k gold nib 
  • Cartridge/converter - converter supplied
  • Free nib tune

What we like:

We love this deep blue finish and the story behind the pen evokes a sense of timelessness.

"In summer, the night—moonlit nights, of course, but also at the dark of the moon, it’s beautiful when the fireflies are dancing everywhere in a mazy flight. And it’s delightful too to see just one or two fly through the darkness, glowing softly. Rain falling on a summer night is also lovely.”
