The Sailor Specialty Nibs consist of 7 uniquely ground nibs: the Naginata-Togi, Naginata Fude de Mannen, Naginata Concord, Naginata Emperor, Cross Point, Cross Music and Cross Concord. Each has the ability to produce extraordinary variation and different line widths at different writing angles.

It may have surprised many of you when we announced Stationery Fest and the truth is we surprised ourselves a little! Two months have gone by now and although it may seem that August is still far off, at this rate, it will be here in no time at all. This past month, we celebrated a major milestone for Stationery Fest by reaching...
