Sailor Shiki-sai series is a nice pen for fountain pen starters. The classic torpedo-shaped body with the classic sailor nib directly shows you that sailor pays attention to every detail of every pen they produce.
Sailor hold a patent on the metal they use to produce the nib for their fountain pen. Although the main part of the nib is made from stainless steel to improve the resistance to corrosion, the tip is still made of the same metal as the other golden nib pens. It guarantee the smoothness during writing.
However, the stainless steel shows less flexibility and feedback, but it is still a nice choice for starter at such a low price.
Sailor Shiki-sai series describe the colour of four seasons. The inspiration of sakura is from the sakura rain in the spring. The flying sakura gives the pink colour to everything next to the tree.
