Description The Sailor Pro Gear Slim fountain pen shown here in Fairy Tale Grateful Crane with gold trim, features a flat-top cap and barrel design in a slightly pearlescent light blue resin barrel and cap accented by gold-plated trim. The 14k gold nib is available in a medium-fine nib. The cap posts well on the barrel when writing, and this helps to make the pen feel almost full-sized in the hand. The Sailor Pro Gear Slim fountain pen fills via the proprietary Sailor ink cartridges or proprietary converter for use with bottled ink - both of which are included with the pen. For the best long-term performance of your Sailor fountain pen, we highly recommend that you use the Sailor Fountain Pen Maintenance Kit for the most efficient way to clean your fountain pen!

Japanese fairy tales always fill young Japanese reader’s mind with awe inspiring folklores of mythical beings, folk heroes, heavenly bodies, or simply common characters accomplishing uncommon feats. This inspired The Sailor Pen Company to introduce a new series of SHIKIORI Special Edition pens – The Shikiori Japanese Fairy Tale Series. Chosen for its diverse characters and color palettes, this new Professional Gear Slim Special Edition Series will surely draw much fanfare much like the SHIKIORI Four Seasons Special Edition Pens that was introduced a few years ago.
