I never expected to buy a fountain pen in Japan simply because I’ve decided to stop buying them indiscriminately. Instead, I chose to focus on examining all the pens that I would never be able to ogle at in North America.
But when I saw this beauty at Maruzen in Osaka - named “Yume tsumugi” - in my favourite #Sailorpen Professional Gear body, I knew I had to buy it. It was a one minute decision as I have explained to my friend who was with me that that’s how I buy them. It’s gotta be a “I have to have that” moment :P Her reaction was, “Uh, sure…” This is the first ProGear I have with the brass/chrome plated section. The weight of the pen is SO different than all the ProGears’ I’ve owned making it seem like a whole different pen! I’ve only tested it at the store but now that I’m back home, I can’t wait to use it daily.
