For your consideration, we are offering this modern Sailor Progear Classic Imperial Black Fountain Pen fitted with a 21K "Zoom" nib for sale. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, put back together, and is now in superb writing condition.

NOTE: This Sailor fountain pen comes fitted with the 21K "ZOOM" nib. The ZOOM nib is exclusive to Sailor and writes with a wet, broad line. The design of the grind is such that the width of the line is linked to the angle at which you write. A higher angle results in a thinner line while a lower angle produces a thicker line.

This provides versatility similar to that of a broad nib with plenty of ink, shading, and coverage. The writing experience is exceptionally smooth, and the angle at which you write is crucial. It is an extremely smooth writer.

The cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no cracks, nicks, scratches, or repairs. The pen is made of resin with a screw-on cap to the barrel. The trim is black and the nib is a 21k gold that is "ion-plated" in black The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or wear. The cap banding is stamped with, "SAILOR JAPAN FOUNDED 1911".

The Sailor nib is made of 21K gold and is designated as a ZOOM nib point by the "N" stamp on the edge of the nib. The nib iridium measures 1.48mm when using digital calipers. When creating the writing sample in the images, the line/stroke ranges from a medium. 88mm to a double broad (1.22mm) variation when measuring with digital calipers.

I used Parker Blue ink to create the writing sample. The nib on this fountain pen writes amazingly with a super soft and smooth stroke.

This Sailor comes with the original ink converter seen in the images. I have tested it with water and works as it was designed.

No box or documentation comes with the pen - just the pen. The fountain pen measures 5" inches in length capped and 5 7/8" inches posted. The pen weighs 24.9 grams with the ink converter included. I grade this Sailor Fountain Pen in Near Mint Condition.

The nib is spectacular on this pen and you will love to write with it if you like wet, broad juicy line. It is ready to write with or you can just add it to your writing instrument stable. Please review all my images as they are part of the description. If you have any questions, please ask.

I strive to find unique and difficult to find pieces that I believe will capture the attention of collectors. I spend a great deal of time traveling, talking with people, sitting at auctions and waiting in line at estate sales to find these pieces. Some of the items are "farm fresh" and some I have had in my possession for years and time to let others enjoy. If I can find out, I will.

These are antiques so expect them not to be "perfect". If you want faster service, please contact me to receive a quote. I do pack carefully, I do not want them to arrive broken. Please make sure they do, if not please request it, if you would like it added.
