Sailor

In 1911, Mr. Kyugoro Sakata, a respected engineer from Hiroshima, Japan, was introduced for the very first time to a fountain pen. The fountain pen was demonstrated by a British sailor who was visiting Japan at the time. Mr. Sakata was so impressed by the design and function that he made the decision there and then to produce equally fine products in Japan. To this day, the company he founded (and named Sailor as a nod to the person who first introduced him to fountain pens), still produces some of the finest quality fountain pens available anywhere in the world.
