Sailor x BungBox Pro Gear Slim Mini Zodiac MF nib

The Zodiac series was a shop exclusive made for Bungbox by Sailor, before Sailor re-released its Pro Gear Slim Mini around 2019/20. This model is Libra - a lovely blue/dark teal colour (looks greener in photos) with a very subtle sparkle to it and a clear finial (similar to the North American Sailor Pro Gear Lighthouse model). The finial has a Libra symbol rather than the Sailor Anchor and the cap band features other signs of the Zodiac.

The Pro Gear Slim Mini is a pocket pen version of the Sailor Pro Gear Slim pen, the same width and style but shorter - it's only 10.5 cms long capped and 9.5 cms long uncapped - so it has to be posted to write with comfortably and it takes a Sailor cartridge or special mini-converter (included).

The nib is, I think, unique to Sailor, being a Medium-Fine. This writes closer to a Western Fine and is lovely, smooth and quite wet and again features a Libra symbol rather than the usual Sailor design.

Cap: screw fit.

Weight 16g, 105mm long closed, 95mm open, 135mm posted. 12 mm max. barrel diameter.

Excellent. Posting is fine - cap screws onto end of barrel - line up nib with clip to begin with to align.

Currently inked with Sailor Shikiori Yamadori cartridge but if you'd prefer something else I have a wide range of inks and these are all listed on my profile, please choose which you'd like to try. If you'd rather receive the pen empty, that's fine too - just let me know.
