Sailor TUZU is a fountain pen designed to be comfortable and easy for anyone who picks it up, with a simple, timeless look and a unique adjustable grip that ensures a smooth writing experience for all. The adjustable grip section allows the nib to be rotated to a desired angle, making the TUZU suitable for people with different writing and pen holding habits. The personalized fit of the TUZU fountain pen in the hand makes your writing experience so natural that it's almost a reflex! 

To adjust the TUZU nib and grip, first open the cap and twist off the barrel and pull the ring down. Now the grip can slide down and rotate around so the nib can be adjusted to your desired angle. To lock in your nib position, simply slide the grip back on and push the ring back up to its original position. Reattach the barrel and the pen is ready to use with the nib facing up.

About Sailor:

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.
