Sailor’s new Professional Gear Sigma Slim updates the popular classic Sapporo series with a new, 21st century appearance.

This stylish everyday writer is offered in Black with Gold Trim (above) as well as in Black with Rhodium Trim (below). The filling system is Sailor’s excellent cartridge-converter design – pens can be filled with bottled ink using the provided converter, and can also use Sailor brand ink cartridges. It has been decades since Sailor introduced a new pocket clip. This one conceived with a stylized Sailor anchor front and center.


These pens are provided by Sailor with your choice of specially created 14k two-tone nib units in Fine, Medium or Broad.

The Sailor Pro Gear Sigma Slim fountain pens list at $260, but are currently being sold by for $208.

    The clip looks like a throw back to Pelikan or is that just me?

    • Dan Smith

      Except for the giant anchor at the top, yeah, I can see the similarities.

    I’m kind of “meh” on this one. It’s not different enough from their other offerings to warrant a purchase for me. I really wish they would bring back the Sapporo Mini.

    Ugh. That clip is kiiillliiinggg me!


    Am I the only one who likes the clip? It looks like a cool broadsword with an anchor for a hilt. The domed cap finial looks a little out of place, though.

    This is the same clip from Sailor Shima Kuwa 100 year anniversary LE pen…. I prefer the classic design. This looks to much like some sort of Anime sword or something…

    Wow that clip is bad.
