ThWe understand that the Kanreki Red fountain pen was created to celebrate the 60th birthday of Sailor's nib designer, Mr. Kagwaguchi Akihiro, who was also the original designer of popular Professional Gear fountain pen. Red is the colour most associated with birthdays in Japan, and the sixtieth birthday bears significant importance in Japanese culture. The Sailor Professional Gear Kanreki Red fountain pen can be used with Sailor's cartridges, but is supplied with a converter. It is fitted with a luxuriously smooth 21 carat gold nib that is available in Fine or Medium only.
Note that this is a limited availability pen. For the ultra-smooth writing experience Sailor has built its name on, the Pro Gear II is equipped with the same 21-karat gold nib used in the 1911 seriesthis time with a two-tone treatment.The dominant color on the nib will depend on the trim you choose. The matching clip features a stylized gold anchor, and slides comfortably and securely into your pocket.
This pen is absolutely stunning! What distinguishes this particular model is the decoration.
A study in stealth and sophistication, the new Sailor Pro Gear Large (originally introduced as the Professional Gear large) red with 24K Gold plated trim fountain pen offers a distinctly 21st century take on a classic pen style. This is a pen equally at home in the board room, an artist's studio, or around the house.
The smooth glossy finish is accented by the Gold-plated rings, clip, and cap band. As always, Sailor's smooth-writing 21k nibs make this a pen with writing qualities equal to its appearance.
This is a full but not over-sized pen that will be a comfortable fit for most users. It is slightly lighter than Sailor's classic Professional Gear pen. The filling system is Sailor's excellent cartridge-converter design - pens can be filled with bottled ink using the provided converter, and can also use Sailor brand ink cartridges. So when Sailor announced cosmos model in KOPs, I went big.I went way out of my wheelhouse and bought my first King of Pens model. At the time, the cosmos model with other two edition had just been announced as the second in this special edition series in addition to the original model, but wasnt available yet. But the quest of finding the cosmos led me to find a greater pen. I was already hooked and i research about the model since it is not available in Sailor Catalog. It appeared in the newspaper that on memorial day of the. Amous nib designer of Sailor Mr. Sailor released this pen as a limited edition to commemorate the loss and to honor his sacrifice for Sailor's upbringing of a famous Japanese brand to the world.
I liked the visual of the art when I first saw it, but it was a little too emotional for me to commit to keep the pen but i want to give to the person who respects the dedication and have respect for the people who sacrificed their lives to give something back to the society, surely Mr. Kagwaguchi gave us Sailor nibs to our fountain pen community. BASE DESIGN : LARGE PROGEAR KANREKI.What makes it so great? I think Sailors Professional Gear shape and size is one of the best all-around fountain pen models on the market. It is the perfect combination of weight, balance, quality, and choice for nearly anyone. One of the two I own is always finds it way into my rotation. A lot of Sailor pens are cigar-shaped with black or colored resin barrels and gold or rhodium trim, but the Pro Gear Line switches that up a little with flattened ends. I'm a fan of this design as it breaks up the monotony of the standard cigar-shaped, black-and-gold-trimmed pen. This particular pen is limited edition red color with gold trim. Paired with the flattened ends, I think this combination makes for a slightly more modern presentation while still being subtle enough for even the most conservative boardroom. I like the ring around the cap band because its probably the only thing that kind of stands out when the pen is capped. I like the font they used to engrave SAILOR Japan Founded 1911. The engraving is crisp and looks really good. The clips design is also simple and nondescript, but I dont like that its not so springy. Its hard to slip anything under it. I certainly wont be able to clip it on my pen cases. When you uncap the pen, youll be greeted with this pretty little thing. Well, without the ink coating it, of course. This Pen has a 21kt mono tone nib in a hard fashion.
It has a single slit, a round breather hole, and is engraved with: 1911, 21K, 875, Sailor nib size on the side, the Sailor anchor, and in a gold-plated strip, some flourishes. The nib looks thin and long, which is pretty, and I do prefer Sailor's single tone nibs, which are more common. Not surprisingly, the nib is a solid performer. The nib has consistent ink flow - with normal writing, there are no skips and hard starts. Sailor nibs are not typically scratchy, and this one is not, but they do offer some feedback.
Personally, I like this feeling, and it's different than a super smooth'buttery' nib. It's a surprisingly wet writer, but not a gusher. The nib writes more like a Western finer version as it is Japanese nib, and it is on the firm side, although it is not as rigid as I thought it would be. With regular writing and no pressure, the nib and feed keep up easily with long writing sessions and fast writing. With some pressure, the nib does offer a little bit of line variation.Drying times are on the fast side, given the wetness and width of the nib. I found the feed dries out a little when I used some pressure, but of course, that's not what it is designed for. WHY SO EXPENSIVE & HARD TO FIND. This model is a limited edition and recently only available in order made reservation only, because Sailor always cannot meet the demand over production, which explains why they are so highly valued in the west. Even in Japan they are difficult to find since Sailor does not make them in large quantities. But they are such tough pens, the ones that do turn up are usually still in great condition. I really like how the Sailor feels in hand.
The Large offers a wider diameter, added weight, and a slight increase in length. Even though its not much larger, the difference really matters.
It makes the pen feel more luxury. Its comfortably sized for my large hands. Its comfortable to hold, even for longer writing sessions. The balance of the pen is towards the middle.
The step from the threads to the grip is extremely minimal. No matter what your grip is, this pen should be comfortable for everyone. Please check the pictures for details. Large Progear Limited Edition Kanreki 60th Year.
