This new Sailor Professional Gear Winter Sky is the third in the Pillow book series and is the follow-up model to the very popular “Midnight Sky and Autumn Sky". Inspired by the early morning winter sky after snow has fallen, 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.
This fountain pen has a 21k gold nib and 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.
What we like:
We love the story behind the pen evoking a sense of timelessness.
"In Winter, the early morning - the snow has fallen and of course it is delightful, but it's perfect too if there's a pure white frost, or even just when it is cold."
