Sailor pen japan was founded in 1911by kyugoro sakata, an engineer from the historic naval port of hiroshima in japan, who was introduced to a fountain pen brought from england by a sailor friend. He was determined to produce a finely crafted japanese writing instrument with the highest specification and writing experience. The company was named sailor pen with the aspiration of expanding this homegrown name, sailor pen, internationally like the voyages of a sailor.Sailor pen became the first company to produce fountain pens for the domestic japanese market and it is credited to be one of the oldest established pen companies in japan. Sailor pen has continued to maintain its heritage of quality and technical excellence for more than 100 years since then.
