The expert’s opinion: beyond the flamboyant aesthetics of the Kan and its insolent elegance, especially when held in the hand, what is prevalent in this fountain pen is its quality, which is illustrated in particular through a succession of details such as the small seal found on the thread of the grip. Holding the pen is natural and the writing sumptuous, as soon as the nib is allowed to run freely over the paper. It glides over the paper with such ease and behaves, whatever the variations and pressures, with such brilliance that one cannot help but wonder what is this incredible secret that allows it to obey its owner so blindly. The only regret that its user may feel is the need to put it down after using it. With the pleasure he will feel each time he finds it. To say that this pen is a marvel is an understatement.

Sailor Professional Gear Kanreki fountain pen: a magnificent pen dominated by its symbolism and the sumptuous quality of its nib

It took a particularly keen sense of aesthetics to combine three colours of the same tone. It also took some boldness to do it on a pen, and the designers at Sailor were right, because the least we can say is that the gamble was more than successful for “Le Kan”, another name for Kanreki. The beautiful carmine red body matches the wine red cap as well as the garnet red tips of the fountain pen itself.

The model celebrates the Kanreki festival, which honours a person’s 60th birthday. In Japan, turning 60 is synonymous with rebirth, as it represents a return to the zodiac of one’s birth after five turns of the zodiac. Turning 60 is therefore a wonderful opportunity to start afresh. Red is the colour of honour in this tradition: it is illustrated in the colour of the costume worn by the person celebrating his or her Kanreki. In Japan, this colour is associated with prosperity, luck and birth.

Made of resin, the Kanreki fountain pen has a thin ring at the top of the barrel and what might appear at the section to be a second ring, but is in fact the upper part of the thread. On the cap, brand aficionados will recognise the famous ring engraved with the brand name and embellished with the diminutive KAN. At the top of the cap is the brand’s symbol: the magnificent anchor on a black background surrounded by a gold circle and enhanced by the colour garnet-red. All the trims are gold-plated.

The beautifully engraved nib is also made of 21-carat yellow gold. It also has the remarkable feature of being 24-carat gold-plated. It is available in two sizes: F and M. The Kanreki comes in a beautiful box with a beautiful 50 ml blue-black ink bottle.
