Sailor 1911 GT (Large) Special Nib - Naginata Emperor fountain pen
Item no: 10-7311-320
Sailor is known worldwide for its high-quality nibs. Until a few years ago, many of these specialty nibs were fairly readily available. In recent years, however, these sought-after nibs could hardly be ordered, if at all. With the introduction of a special set, exclusive to a limited number of stationery specialists, including P.W. Akkerman in The Hague, the limited availability of these popular nibs is coming to an end. With the acquisition of this set, we have been given the opportunity to re-order it every time a fountain pen from this series is sold. There will be 50 sets available worldwide, 25 sets for Japan and only 25 sets for the market outside Japan.
The set will consist of 12 fountain pens, all of which are based on the famous Sailor 1911 (the large) model. The set consists of three Naginata Togi fountain pens (Gold Trim) in MF, M, B and three Naginata Togi fountain pens (Silver Trim) in MF, M, B. In addition to these nibs, a Naginata Emperor MF, M, B, Naginata is also available Concord, Cross Point, Cross Concord, Cross Music and Naginata Fude de Men.
The barrel and cap of this classically designed Sailor 1911 are made of acrylic. The pen can be filled with cartridges or with the supplied converter. The cap ring differs from that of the regular collection. This metal cap rim is provided with the text "Special Nib" and finished with a special cloisonné technique.
The 21 carat gold nib has a somewhat sober engraving, unique to this collection. It is important to know that these nibs are not interchangeable with nibs from the "normal" 1911 collection. These nibs can therefore only be supplied in the frames as Sailor now offers them.
This fountain pen has a 21 carat gold "Naginata Emperor" nib, which is a combination of two Sailor nibs; the Sailor Naginata Togi and the Sailor Emperor. The first type provides variable line width, which depends on the angle of the pen relative to the paper - the lower the angle, the wider the line. The narrow gold band mounted on top of the nib comes from the Emperor models and acts as a second ink guide. In addition, the curl that rests on the nib contains an ink reserve that helps ensure a constant ink delivery to the nib. The Naginata Emperor nib is available in Medium-Fine, Medium and Broad.
Nib: 21 krt. gold
