Sailor Sapporo/Pro Gear Slim
and Sapporo Mini Fountain Pens

The Sapporo (also known in some markets as the Pro Gear Slim) is one of Sailor's most popular and affordable models, offering attractive fountain pens that function as terrific everyday writers. From the sleek simplicity of the gold and rhodium-trimmed black pens, to the variety of solid, pastel, semi-transparent, and lamé Colors seen below, the Sapporo series has a pen to fit your taste and sensibility.

Sporting the famous Sailor anchor logo in metal on the top of the cap and showing bands around the end of the barrel as well as both ends of the cap, the regular size Sailor Sapporo is a modern classic. The simple sophistication of the clip and the well proportioned shape of the overall pen add to its functionality and sophistication. Measuring just over 5 1/2" with the cap posted, this is a mid-size fountain pen with an almost full-size feel. For the small size Sapporo, the Mini, see the bottom of this page.

Sapporo, Japan's fifth largest city, is the name chosen by Sailor for this expanding series of pens. Prior to the city's establishment, the area, known as the Ishikari Plain, was home to a number of indigenous Ainu settlements. In 1866, at the end of the Edo Period, construction began on a canal through the area, encouraging a number of early settlers to establish Sapporo village. The name, taken from the Ainu language, translates as "large river running through a plain." Sapporo is the most recently-founded of Japan's major cities, and a fitting namesake for this growing line of pens.
