Sailor 1911 GT (Large) Special Nib - Naginata Fude DE Men's fountain pen
Item no: 10-7811-420
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 21 carat gold Sailor Naginata Concord nib is curved downwards, similar to a bird's beak. Also with this pen the line width depends on the writing angle. When you hold the fountain pen upright, the nib produces thin/sharp lines. If you turn the pen over (reverse), the pen writes as if it were a brush, this pen also produces a nice smooth line at every angle.
