To illustrate the sheer beauty of this pen, I opted for less text and more photos, enjoy!
The looks of this pen are quite straightforward, both simple and elegant at the same time. The cigar shape of the pen is nothing new, as it is seen on a variety of classic pens, like the montblanc meisterstuck and 149. But it doesn't want to be refreshing or new, it just wants to look good, and it sure does! This one is the Rhodium trim version, which looks a bit more modern than the original gold trimmed model. I love the way the shiny silver colour contrast with the deep black resin, no doubt it is a gorgeous pen to look at.
Sailor succeeds at making incredibly detailed pens, the fit and finish is top-notch (which should be expected for a pen of this price), the clip has a subtle, but striking design, and the center band is engraved gorgeously, though it doesn't ruin the elegant and simple form factor of the pen.
Normally I'm not a huge fan of writing posted, but with this one, I have to make an exception! It's so perfectly balanced when posted, it just feels right.
Another thing I like about this nib, is the fact that the high concentration of gold (Gold is a soft metal) makes it a tiny bit springy, which is a incredibly pleasant to use. The nib isn't overpolished, which shows in the responsiveness, it never hesitates to write.
|As you can see here, the grip section is made out of metal, making it a bit heavier in the front.|
