Sailor originally released the Creatures of the Deep Limited Edition series in 2007. Just 88 numbered pens in each of the ten motifs were produced worldwide.

Sailor is renowned for the variety and smooth writing qualities of their nibs, which perform even better when optimized for your personal writing characteristics via our complimentary nib tuning services. Sailor 21k solid gold nibs also provide excellent starting points for many our unique nib customizations, which add personality and flair to your writing on the page by allowing for greater line-width variation. 

The motif on each Creatures of the Deep pen was designed by noted Maki-e artist Koushu Nishihara, who was born into a family of artists and trained in traditional lacquer ware technique at the Wajima Urushi Lacquer Institute of Art in Ishikawa. Each Creatures of the Deep pen includes a special dark wood presentation box with all original papers and documentation, as well as a polishing cloth, converter, and a now-vintage bottle of Sailor Jentle Ink in the classic non-reservoir style bottle - while we don't recommend use of the ink after ten years, the unopened bottle adds to the collectibility and value of the pen.
