Since the establishment in 1911, the Sailor Pen Co. has been proudly maintaining its belief in the importance of precision writing instruments. Still today, they offer the discerning customer technical perfection and writing quality.
This model - The Professional Gear has a selection of 21K or 14K gold nibs and a unique design with a cut-away cap and inlaid Sailor anchor logo on the top.
The same philosophy would later be used to re-design the concept with a new fresh looking "ProGear II" as seen below.
