Sailor Pro Gear King of Pen Fountain Pen - Sunlight from the Ocean Floor.

The Pro Gear King of Pen "Sunlight from the Ocean Floor" is the fourth pen in Sailor’s beloved "Ocean" series, which began with "Sunset Over the Ocean" in 2021. This stunning pen captures the jewel-like sparkle of sunlight as seen from the depths of the sea, offering a fantastical glimpse into an underwater world. The light from the sun is a crucial source of energy for marine life and holds a beauty that transcends mere aesthetics. This pen is a 2024 limited edition.

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.
