Sailor King of Pen Bordeaux Urushi

Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke Collection, the King of Pen Bordeaux Urushi fountain pen comes standard with a 21k solid gold rhodium-plated King of Pen nib.

The King of Pen is well-known as Sailor's more than full-sized fountain pen, comparable in size to the Montblanc 149. With its deep burgundy finish and rhodium trim, the Bordeaux Urushi is as rich as a full-bodied wine.

This is a pen with a large presence. Its rounded cap ends and streamlined shape provide excellent balance in the hand, and the Sailor 21k nib is renowned for its smooth writing capabilities. The King of Pen is handcrafted from ebonite and then finished with up to twelve coats of rich Urushi lacquer. Urushi lacquer has been used as a decorative material since Japan's Jomon period (2000 years ago).

 Rhodium touches on the clip and section lend a sleek, modern appearance.

The King of Pen 21k solid gold nib excels as one of the smoothest in the world. For those who prefer more line width variation and an innovative nib inspired by Japanese brush painting, the Naginata-Togi nib is also available for an additional cost. Rhodium plating matches the fountain pen's trim.

Sailor's King of Pen Bordeaux Urushi fountain pen comes packaged in a wooden presentation box and includes a complimentary bottle of ink. The pen accepts either a standard Sailor converter or Sailor's cartridges.

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships.
