The Sailor Professional Gear Slim Shikiori Japanese Fairy Tale Series Fountain Pen in Vega (Navy Blue) is available in-store and online at Dromgoole's.
The Cowherd and the Weaving Girl are two lovers of Chinese and Japanese folklore, separated because of their natures: she is a fairy or a goddess, depending on the version of the tale, and he is but a mortal. These lovers are the stars Vega and Altair, which draw near every year in the summertime. The Empress Goddess separates them across a great river in heaven--the Milky Way--and only allows them to reunite on the 7th day of the 7th moon of each year. On that day, the magpies create a bridge across the river and allow them to embrace again.
Japanese fairy tales always fill young Japanese reader’s mind with awe inspiring folklores of mythical beings, folk heroes, heavenly bodies, or simply common characters accomplishing uncommon feats. This inspired The Sailor Pen Company to introduce a new series of Shikiori Special Edition pens –The Shikiori Japanese Fairy Tale Series. Chosen for its diverse characters and color palettes, this new Professional Gear Slim Special Edition Series is a beautiful successor to the Shikiori Four Seasons Special Edition Pens released a few years ago.
The Vega is a deep blue with gold shimmer, inspired by the story of the Cowherd and the Weaving Girl. These two lovers are prevented from seeing each other except for one day a year. It is said that these lovers are the stars Vega and Altair, and the river separating them is the Milky Way.
The Shikiori Japanese Fairy Tale Series is available in four shimmering colors with gold plated accents and a 14k gold medium-fine (MF) nib.
