Princess Koto was a fallen Heike clan princess who washed ashore and was saved by seaside villagers. To thank them, she played a “koto” harp beautifully each day on the beach, before falling ill and passing away. Ever since, the beach sand became musical sand, and the beach was named “Beach of Koto” in her honor.

Sailor's Princess Raden collection takes its inspiration from Japanese fairytale princesses. A true showstopper, each pen is inlaid with intricate, genuine mother-of-pearl detailing on the barrels and caps, and illustrated with motifs from each folktale.

There's a reason why Sailor's Pro Gear Slim fountain pens are known as "the Sapporo" of writing instruments among discerning stationery circles. Made exclusively in Japan, this classic fountain pen lends an air of authority to every signature, while its lightweight feel and smooth inkflow makes writing a pleasure.

Features:

  • Signature medium-fine 14K gold nib with rhodium plating
  • Resin barrel with mother of pearl detailing
  • Includes official Sailor cartridge and piston converter
  • Measures 4.85" (123mm) when capped, 5.6" (142mm) when posted
  • Standard Sailor gift box included

The Sailor Pen Company was founded by the engineer Kyugoro Sakata, after a sailor friend gifted him a fountain pen from England. Fascinated by the instrument, he became determined to produce the first fountain pens in Japan. Mr. Sakata named his company “Sailor” with the hopes that his business would be as far-reaching as the voyages of a sailor. Years later, every Sailor pen is still manufactured in its home port of Hiroshima, and remains one of the oldest manufacturers in the industry.
