Sailor Fountain Pen Nibs
From left to right, these are the Sailor Extra Fine, Fine, Medium-Fine, Medium, Broad, Zoom, and Music points, seen here in the 21K 1911 series version. These point sizes are available in any of Sailor's pens.
Available in EF, F, MF, M, B, Zoom, and Music. Sailor 21K and 14K nibs explore a subtle range not seen in other manufacturer's tips. The Fine nib is finer than those seen in most contemporary pens, and the Extra-Fine is similar to those found in pens of the 1920's. The Medium-Fine, meanwhile, offers a handy alternative--it is similar in size to the standard Fine of other Asian pens, and is just slightly finer than the Fine rating of most European pen makers, so it is a great choice for those who want a fine point that is not scratchy.
See our tipping comparison page for a more complete breakdown.

Sailor Music Nib writing sample
Although traditionally Western music nibs are double slit, Sailor has produced one that does much the same thing with just one slit. It creates a wet-flowing, stubby line, capable of whole-notes and half-notes as well as bold cursive writing.

Sailor Zoom Nib writing sample

Japan is a country that honors its calligraphers by elevating them to the status of national treasures. The Sailor fountain pen with a zoom nib takes the place of a brush. Holding the pen at a higher angle produces a much finer line than when the pen is held at a lower angle. When held at a "normal" angle, this point delivers a "juicy medium/broad line."
