Sailor Naginata Togi Nibs Are Back!


We're happy to announce that after years of being unavailable, Sailor Naginata Togi nibs are now once again being provided for purchase on two very special pens. The 1911 Full-Size Naginata Togi Black Gold and 1911 Full-Size Naginata Togi Black Silver each feature a special engraved metallic cap ring in-filled with resin using precise cloisonné technique.

Naginata Togi nibs are handcrafted by skilled nib specialists at the Sailor factory in Hiroshima. Similar to our own Architects Point customization, these nibs provide broad strokes on the horizontal and finer strokes on the vertical, providing a line on the page particularly well-suited to Japanese kanji, Arabic and Hebrew calligraphy, or the type of distinctive print script used by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Please note that the cross-strokes on these nibs provide line-widths much broader than would normally be expected from Japanese nibs - the Medium-Fine is rated by us as .6mm, the Medium as .65mm, and the Broad as .8mm. Expect a juicy ink flow, as these specialty nibs have been designed to emulate the style of Japanese brush painting.

These nibs are only available on the two 1911 Full-Size Naginata Togi pens mentioned above, and cannot be sold or swapped into any other Sailor pen. Quantities are expected to remain very limited, and we strongly recommend ordering promptly to receive the pen and nib combination of your choice.
