The Pro Gear Slim Princess Kaguya fountain pen is part of Sailor's new Shikiori Japanese Fairy Tale Series, which is a follow on from the Four Seasons edition. The Princess Kaguya is inspired by the "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter," a popular folktale which is also the oldest known Japanese prose narrative. It tells the fantastical story of a young woman originally found as an infant inside a stalk of bamboo and who must ultimately leave her Earthly family and many suitors to return to her place of origin on the Moon.
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.
