Pen Boutique has always been proud to offer Sailor pens to our customers, and we wanted to make sure that our collaboration with Sailor was something truly special that would look at home in any collection. After months of refinement and prototyping, we’re proud to introduce the Pen Boutique exclusive Sailor 1911 Kagero Green.
The name “Kagero” (kah-geh-ro) comes from the Japanese name for mayflies, a semi-aquatic insect that inspired the pen’s rich green color. Mayflies are notable for their unique life cycle, in which they may live as long as several years before molting to their adult form for one of nature’s most brief mating periods. For a single day in the spring or summer, they form huge swarms to mate all at once before laying eggs and dying. Besides being a fascinating natural spectacle, mayflies are an important part of the ecosystems where they live. They represent a significant part of the diets of many species in river habitats, and the presence of mayfly nymphs is used as an indicator of an ecosystem’s health, as they’re among the first affected by pollution and changes in acidity.
We chose this naturally inspired color because we appreciate the outdoors. We value efforts to protect the environment and educate the next generation about the importance of conservation.
The pen itself has a translucent body and cap in a rich dark green, which besides giving the pen a refined yet contemporary aesthetic, allows you to see the ink remaining in a converter or cartridge without removing the barrel. The trim and nib have a gold finish, which complements the green of the cap and body nicely. Sailor nibs are renowned for their quality and unique feel, and the 21K and 14K nibs on the Large and Standard respectively are no exception
Sailor has made a new design for their nibs. The pens which are produced from January 2022 onwards will have the new-design nib. The difference between the old nib and the new nib:
- New nib does not have '1911' engraved on it
- New design of the anchor
- New design of the "SAILOR" engraving below the anchor
- The 'H' letter (abbreviation of 'Hard') is removed from the nib size indicator on the left side of the new nib
Depending on the availability of our stock, you may receive the old Sailor nib design or the new Sailor nib.
