This pen is beyond beautiful, it's not just a fountain pen, it is a work of art that I will cherish forever. The nib on this pen is the smoothest nib I have ever used and that's because of the nib optimization service which they did an amazing job at. This pen will now always be my favorite pen no matter what.

This is a pen for larger hands. The surface area allows for more room for the delicate maki-e depicted by artist Tadashi Nakamura. Not only is it visually stunning, but with its cartridge-converter filling system and 21k solid gold King of Pen nib, the Sakura Nagare is also an excellent writing instrument.

Pieces of abalone, or raden, are embedded in the black resin to emulate a flowing river. Amongst the blue and purple, Nakamura has painted golden cherry blossom leaves and flowers. Light reflecting off of the raden mimics the movement of the water as it carries the cherry blossoms downstream.

Take a closer look at the raden. These pieces add a textured element to the resin surface. 

The rounded cap end conforms to the shape of the King of Pen. A gold clip allows the pen to be easily affixed to a shirt pocket.

Part of Sailor's exclusive Bespoke Collection, the King of Pen Sakura Nagare fountain pen comes standard with a 21k solid gold King of Pen nib. The Sailor 21k nib is renowned for its smooth writing capabilities.

The Sakura Nagare fountain pen arrives in a wooden presentation box lined with plush blue velvet and comes with a kimono and starter cartridge.
