Sailor's Precious Woods Collection introduces a line of beautiful yet understated pens made of rare wood and gold-plated trimming. This is the Kokutan Ebony model, a gorgeous dark pen which showcases the contrasting gold trim. Ebony is a dense, black wood which is strong enough to sink in water. Don't let its tough nature fool you, however--ebony is also known for its fine texture and smooth surface after it is polished, which is evident in this unique pen.
This pen measures at just over 5" when capped. It will be a comfortable fit for most users, and utilizes Sailor's reliable cartridge-converter system, which allows it to be filled with either bottled fountain pen ink or with Sailor brand cartridges. A very solid "click" can be heard when putting the cap on. This makes an almost airtight seal between the cap and barrel, which prevents early dry-out of the nib.
Note the intricate engraving on the ring band, shown here in a close-up view. These details add a special element to this already unique pen. You can also see the natural grain of the ebony wood in the barrel detail shown above, providing a slight element of texture.
The Precious Woods Kokutan Ebony is available with your choice of 14k nib, available inExtra Fine, Fine, Medium-Fine, Medium, Broad, Music and Zoom.
14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex - see our nib customizations page for more information.
