1911 King of Pens black/gold Fountain pen by Sailor – a prestigious pen for majestic writing
To say that this sumptuous model is “the king of fountain pens”, as Sailor puts it with the acronym KOP – King of Pens – is certainly not a stylish statement. But if this magnificent object, intended for men, imposes by its presence and the quality of its materials, it is above all by its nib that it impresses.
A nib that literally transports us before the Meiji era, to the warlords, the famous samurais and those who made their Katana for them. For if this nib is exceptional, we owe it to this ancestral tradition: that of perfection which can only be truly experienced when the object is held in the hands.
Made of high quality glossy black resin, this fountain pen has three thin rings and a much larger central ring with the brand name followed by the year it was created, as well as the inscription “THE KING OF PEN” in capital letters. All trims, including the clip, are plated with 24-carat gold.
When the pen is unscrewed, it is not a simple thread where the cartridge or converter is attached, but a splendid device just as impressive as the nib. The upper part of the section impresses not only by its length (over 30 mm), but also by the quality of the material used and its technicality.
Two small vertical windows on either side of the device allow the ink level of the converter to be seen at a glance. The 24-carat gold-plated finish is very attractive.
Its two-tone nib is exceptional in its imposing length (26 mm) and width (11 mm). Made of 21-carat gold, it is also rhodium and 24-carat gold plated. The nib is available in M and B.
This 1911 King of Pens black/gold fountain pen by Sailor comes in a beautiful black box with a dark navy blue interior. The future owner of this superb pen will find in this box, in addition to two cartridges, a gold-plated converter as well as a wipe with the brand emblem.
