Sailor King Eagle II
Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Specially inscribed nibs are often made available for limited edition fountain pens, but in this case, it is a very special nib which has served as inspiration for the pen. Available in just 28 numbered pieces worldwide, Sailor's King Eagle II Limited Edition fountain pen pays homage to the majestic King Eagle itself, and also to the unique King Eagle nibs originated by recently-retired nib master Nobuyori Nagahara.

The bold artwork is by Maki-e master Koushu Nishihara, also responsible for Sailor's noted Creatures of the Deep series, while the King Eagle nib is handcrafted by nib master Yukio Nagahara, Nobuyori's son and successor. Nishihara utilizes a variety of precious materials, including gold dust and abalone raden, to bring this representation of the King Eagle to life.

At nearly six inches long when capped and weighing 39 grams, this is generously full-sized pen that will still be a very comfortable fit for most users. As always with Sailor, this unique Maki-e pen is also a superbly responsive and practical writing instrument. The nib size utilized is the same as that in the Sailor Pro Gear and 1911 Full-Size pens.

Note the fierce stare of the King Eagle as he perches on a steady branch. His abalone-inlaid eyes tell us he has found his prey and is ready to attack.

The ample use of gold and silver dust adds to the value and collectability of this pen while still utilizing color gradients found in nature. Notice the concentration of gold in the full moon.

The cap detail, near right, depicts the eagle soaring above the land. With a wingspan of almost two meters and a weight up to 5 kg, it's not difficult to see why this bird is both feared and respected.

To the far right can be seen a close-up of the artist's signature in kanji, along with the limited edition number.

The King Eagle nib is capable of a flourish that leaves behind a mark on paper like no other nib. The triple layers hold a huge supply of ink right next to the paper, ready to pounce on the letter or symbol. Marks left behind by the tip are a record of the speed and precision of this aptly named nib, ranging from dark wet and heavy to light and tapering. Functional art in their own right, Nagahara nibs such as the King Eagle and King Cobra resemble nothing else being produced today.

The King Eagle II Limited Edition fountain pen is provided by Sailor with a 21k King Eagle nib. Made from three nibs crafted together, this nib resembles the head and beak of the King Eagle.

Sailor nibs are renowned for their smooth writing qualities. The special "double cross" tip of the King Eagle nib allows for a wide variety of line widths on the page. This is a very juicy nib.
