The Sailor Pen Co., LTD. was founded in 1911 by Kyugoro Sakata, an engineer from the historic naval port of Hiroshima, Japan. He had seen a fountain pen which a friend had brought back from England and became determined to establish a company to produce the most elegant and finely crafted writing instruments in the world.

Mr. Sakata decided to call the company Sailor Pen in the hope that the brand would expand internationally like the voyages of a sailor. They were the first Japanese company to produce a fountain pen and are still one of the oldest established companies in the industry with an excellent reputation for their amazing fountain pen nibs.
