Since it was established in 1911 the Sailor Pen Company has proudly maintained its belief in the precision Writing Instrument. Still today Sailor offers the discerning customer technical perfection and writing quality. The King of Pens was developed as the oversized flagship symbol of Sailor's technology quality and writing perfection. Special attention was given to the oversize 21K solid Gold nib. Enjoy the writing excellence from this high-quality pen.
The Pillow Book is a famous collection of essays written by Sei Shonagon (966-1017) whilst she was in the service of Empress Teishi. The Pillow Book was thought to be a way for her to express her innermost thoughts and feelings which she was unable to express publicly due to her lowly position in court. Sailor Pen has skillfully created the color of the sky that she described in this essay.
This inspired Sailor to introduce the first in their annual release of the Pillow Book series – the Professional Gear Midnight Sky. Its rich dark blue hue with rhodium trim is reminiscent of a cloudless summer night with the full moon in clear view and fireflies dancing around. With the intriguing mood and details.
