Sailor 100th Anniversary
The Shima Kuwa Mulberry
Fountain Pen
On May 27th 2011, Sailor Pen celebrates its 100th anniversary. In commemoration of this special occasion, the company is releasing the limited edition Shima Kuwa Mulberry Fountain Pen.
Sailor 100th Anniversary Fountain Pen

The Shima Kuwa is handcrafted from premier grade Mulberry wood from Mikurajima, a small island in the Izu archipelago which is famous for this very rare and precious natural material. Shima Kuwa Mulberry wood is often used in Japan for special gifts . A special design "anchor" clip has been commissioned for this product – a symbol that is very special to Sailor.

 

The beauty of the Mulberry wood grain is achieved using ‘Fuki Urushi’ – a deep burnishing process using Urushi lacquers from the famous Jouhou Temple. The pen is then decorated using gold powder Maki-e in the form of a wave pattern on the cap below the clip. Sailor 100th Anniversary Fountain Pen

The 21K Medium solid gold nib is stamped with the ‘100 Years’ insignia and also shows the Sailor anchor with special draped chains.
