Sailor ProColour - open, originally uploaded by redspotted.


(click through for the full set)

So I picked up a Sailor ProColour from the Post Office this morning. (I had ordered it, I wasn't just randomly picking things up.)

The main reason I got it was this thread on FountainPenNetwork, a terrible addiction-enabling site. Much as I like my Lamy Safaris, I was looking for a small step up. Specifically I had heard that Sailor pens had very fine nibs. This turned out to be very much the case. It has an extremely sharp line, but the ink flow is still excellent; it writes very smoothly indeed.

I am currently using it in my Moleskine as my daily pen, and if anything goes wrong with it, I shall be sure to say. The only thing so far that I find a little odd is that the plastic *does* look pretty cheap. I know that the price has been kept down by using this sort of construction, so that almost all of the cost is nib and mechanism, but I'm sure it could have looked a *bit* better. Not embarrassing though I suppose, and less likely to be stolen.

Lovely! I'm now very tempted to get a violet one. I have a few fountain pens that I don't use often but it does get addicting.

Who, these days, would nick a fountain pen? Most people under 50 don't even know what they are for!

I don't even notice that sort of thing, because it seems half the pens I own are promotional devices from some business or another.

I wouldn't nick a fountain pen, that's for sure. They run out of ink far too quickly. (I like mine anyway.)

you have no idea how much I want to photoshop a sailor mercury skirt and wand, with accompanying ponytails, onto this pen picture.

You're really lucky it's the middle of the night and I can barely type, let alone do creative things to pen pictures.

like, REALLY lucky..
