Mr. Nobuyoshi Nagahara was the creator of Sailor’s Special Nibs. Nowadays Yukio Nagahara, his son, is the person in charge of overseeing and directing the design process of Sailor’s unique nibs, and his designs are significantly based on the legacy that his father established. These pens, hand-crafted through a long process, are truly unique in design, character and personality, and are inspired by the Japanese brush art.
There are 7 different models, and, depending on the angle of the pen, they write wider or thinner. In this GIF you can discover all of them and their strokes.
Naginata Togi: if you hold the pen upright, the line will be thinner than if you put it at an angle. This is the one of the two models for which you can choose the nib size (MF, M, B)
Naginata Concord: thin writing lines when used in a normal position and thicker strokes if inverted.
Naginata Fude de Mannen: writes from fine to broad lines depending on the pen and nib angle.
Naginata Emperor: “Emperor” refers to the solid gold rolled tab positioned on the top of the nib. This provides a supplementary ink reservoir when writing very quickly or when using a very absorbent paper. It is the other model for which you can choose the nib size (MF, M, B)
Cross Point: it produces a very broad and smooth line depending on how it is positioned.
Cross Concord: it draws a very narrow line when used in a normal position and a broad stroke with excellent ink flow when inverted.
Cross Music: it writes fine lines when held normally and bold strokes when held at an angle.
