Sailor’s new Professional Gear Sigma fountain pens update the popular Professional Gear line with a slightly larger size and with a raised logo on top, which gives more of a domed effect. It has been decades since Sailor introduced a new pocket clip. This one is conceived with a stylized Sailor anchor front and center.
The Sailor Pro Gear Sigma is offered in Black with Gold Trim as well as in Black with Rhodium Trim. 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.
The Pro Gear Sigma is also available in a sleek Matte Black finish with Rhodium Trim, pictured above. This smooth, non-glossy finish adds a unique element to the classic style. The Pro Gear Sigma also comes as a Realo in Black with Gold Trim, pictured below. The Realo model brings the added ink capacity of a piston-filler to this series, and can only be filled using bottled ink.
Though the Professional Gear has received a new look with the Sigma line, it maintains the same quality 21k Sailor nibs that makes these pens among the finest in the world.
The Pro Gear Sigma series is available with the full range of Sailor 21k nibs in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium-Fine, Medium, Broad, Music, and Zoom.
The Pro Gear Sigma Black with Gold Trim and Pro Gear Sigma Black with Rhodium Trim will retail for $410, but is currently available from Nibs.com for $328.
The Pro Gear Sigma Matte Black and Pro Gear Sigma Realo Black will both retail for $510 with a stree price of $408.
