Pro Gear Slim Fountain Pen | Solar Term | Tako | Limited EditionRegular price $ 295.00 Sale price $ 236.00
The Tako pen is part of Sailor's limited edition Solar Term series, a set of four gorgeous pens celebrating the solstices and equinoxes and inspired by Japanese seasonal traditions. Tako represents the summer solstice and is named for the octopus, which is traditionally eaten on the solstice in prayer that the season's crops will grow abundantly like an octopus's legs. It's a beautiful rosy pink color with pearly white finials and gold trim.
Sailor's Pro Gear Slim fountain pen is a comfortable mid-sized pen, small enough to fit in a pocket but long enough for comfortable everyday use. It's got a classic shape with a flat-top cap and a round barrel and grip, and comes with a converter and ink cartridges to get you started. Sailor makes their gold nibs in-house, and they're known for being exceptionally precise, with a unique feedback sensation. (Note that they run on the fine side, like other Japanese fountain pen nibs.)
Staff pick! Victor says: "This was my first entry into high-end fountain pens. It fits comfortably in my smaller hand and I really enjoy the gentle and smooth pencil-like feedback as the nib runs across the paper. It's always exciting to see their beautiful new limited editions and oh-so difficult to hold back from collecting them all."
