Sailor "Snow White" - Part II

My Snow White arrived today! It is soooooooo pretty. :)

You can read more about it here.

This is the second pen my lovely friend Jim has acquired for me - I'm so lucky. :)


  1. I found this last week -
    In 1911, Mr. Kyugoro Sakata, an engineer from Hiroshima, Japan, was introduced to the fountain pen. His long-time friend, a British Sailor, demonstrated it to him. Mr. Sakata was so intrigued by the design and function of the pen he decided to begin a company to craft the finest writing instruments in the world. In honor of his British friend, he chose to name the company Sailor Pen.
    He was determined to produce the most elegant and sophisticated writing instruments in the world. His passion was to make writing an alluring expand Sailor’s market to the world, as a sailor explores the world.
    The Sailor Pen Company has proudly maintained this heritage of quality and technical perfection over the years. Still today, it offers the customer a unique variety of writing instruments that enhance the pleasures of the writing experience.

  2. Hi Bert!

    Yes, Sailor have a great history.

    To me, they are the most interesting Japanese manufacturer - they have generally had the smallest output but the biggest range. :)

  3. What an absolutely beautiful pen!
