Not all Sailors go to sea!

When I was 14 years old, I had a friend who went to Sea. The United States Navy called him a sailor.

These fountain pens are nothing like that young man, and I am not the same person I was back then.

One of the two Sailor fountain pens in my collection resembles another fountain pen I own. In fact, if the light is dim I might even confuse this Sailor with my Lamy Ratio. It's described on Pendemonium's site as a SAI-104148 Sailor Profit Super Script Fountain Pen, Dark Blue. It has a pedigree.

The other Sailor I own was bought at the Fountain Pen Hospital in New York City. Here is an excellent review of the first Sailor, and some smashing photographs.
