Pillow Book – a collection of widely read Japanese essays written during the early 1000s – is the theme of this new series from the Sailor Pen Company. Various subjects were touched in this collection of poems and anecdotes, however one that was frequently mentioned are the four seasons. This inspired Sailor to introduce the first in their annual release of the Pillow Book series – the Professional Gear Midnight Sky. Its rich dark blue hue with rhodium trim is reminiscent of a cloudless summer night with the full moon in clear view and fireflies dancing around. 

This oversized Sailor Pro Gear King of Pens fountain pen features a solid navy blue resin barrel and cap, complemented by rhodium-plated accents. The flat top cap features the Sailor anchor logo inset into the top finial. It comes equipped with Sailor's legendary 21kt rhodium-plated gold nib in medium or broad. The cap screws to open/close and can push to post onto the back of the barrel when writing. The Professional Gear fountain pen comes with a Sailor proprietary converter as well as two proprietary Sailor Black ink cartridges.
