Sailor Pro Gear - Iris Nebula. A new addition to the Sailor Galaxy Series, this pen is named after the Iris Nebula in the Cepheus constellation. Iris Nebula is a cold interstellar cloud of dust and gas that reflects light from nearby stars and looks like a flower blooming in space. The Sailor Pro Gear Iris Nebular takes inspiration from the beautiful clouds of dust and gas that gravitationally converge to form a nebula during the birth of a star. The pen features a semi-translucent blue barrel with a semi-translucent smoky black cap, with silver glitter throughout the body that is reminiscent of the celestial dust within the Iris Nebula. 

This pen is a 2024 Overseas exclusive limited edition with 1500 available outside of Japan.

Sailor was founded in 1911. The founder Kyugoro Sakata was given a fountain pen by a friend returning from the UK after studying at the Royal Navy. He was inspired and determined to start making fountain pens in Japan. Sailor became the first fountain pen company in Japan, and earned many more firsts in Japan -- first ballpoint pen in 1948, first ink cartridge in 1954 and first brush pen in 1972, etc.

In the 1970's, Sailor made a popular beginner fountain pen, "Candy," that sold more than 15 million within a few years. However, the number of the fountain pen users were declining as ballpoint pens became more mainstream.

In 1981, Sailor decided to go in the opposite direction from their "Candy" pen and began focusing on producing a higher standard series, which is the 1911 series we see today. Their focus on making a higher standard provides a great foundation for their later series of pens. Today, Sailor makes one of the most diverse lines of nibs, some of which are designed for specific writing purposes such as writing musical notes to one that is best for character writing.
