|WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW|
|Notes||Resin section improves look and feel over injection molded plastic.|
I don’t know what’s going on over at Sheaffer lately, but I like what I’m seeing. Starting with the Taranis, that we talked about a few weeks ago, they’re latest offering is the Sagaris, a lighter, slimmer fountain pen with a more traditional design. Oh, and whoever is naming these things deserves an award. Taranis comes from Celtic mythology and is the god of thunder. Sagaris is a long-shafted weapon with a metal head, with either a sharp(ax-like) or blunt (hammer-like) edge on one side and a sharp (straight or curving) ‘ice-pick’-like point on the other. I can’t wait to hear the name of their next pen!
The light weight and comfortable profile of the new Sheaffer Sagaris ensures an enjoyable writing experience. It features the Sheaffer name engraved on the front and back of the cap band with a new nib imprint and a two tone finish on pens with gold trim. The one thing that makes the most difference to me is the resin grip section. Resin is a huge improvement over injection molded plastic both in terms of feel and appearance.
When it’s released in October it’ll be available in seven versions at three price levels: $60, $75, and $90. The Sheaffer Sagaris fountain pen will come with a steel nib in Fine or Medium width and uses Sheaffer Classic Skrip cartridges.
