The Pro Gear Slim Dragon Palace fountain pen is part of the Sailor Shikiori Japanese Fairy Tale Series, which is a follow on from the Four Seasons edition. The Dragon Palace is inspired by Ryugu-jo, the undersea abode of dragon spirit Ryujin in Japanese folklore. Ryujin, as a powerful sea god, is said to have the ability to control the tides and transform into human form.
The Sailor Pro Gear Slim fountain pen has a tapered, cigar-shape profile with flattened ends, with each pen featuring reflective particles that are suspended in colourful hues of PMMA resin and matched with gold-plated trims. Made exclusively in Hiroshima, Japan, this pen also features one of Sailor's exceptional 14K gold nibs, which is only available in a medium-fine size.
Sailor Pro Gear Slim fountain pens use a cartridge-converter fill system so any bottled ink can be used when the pen is fitted with the provided converter, while Sailor proprietary ink cartridges will also work. The fountain pen comes in a special presentation box that includes the converter and a cartridge.
