Sailor Professional Gear Mini Rencontre Fountain Pen
Rencontre is French for “encounter”. This series embodies the encounter between acrylic resin which offers transparentness and durability, with the elegant texture of marble patterns, born of Sailorʼ s original technique. The marble patterned barrel is the iconic characteristic of this series and
is manufactured with the injection molding method we normally employ for resin parts. Only under limited conditions can two colors form a
beautiful marble pattern without blending too much into each other. Marble forming techniques have existed, but it was always considered
difficult to create marble patterns with acrylic resin. At Sailor Pen, we have developed an original technique for realizing marble patterns with polished shine and depth, using acrylic resin. Easy to carry around with a body so compact that it fits comfortably within the palm of your hand. Becomes just the right size when writing, for an authentic writing performance.
This mini design has major style. Meet the new Professional Gear Slim Mini - Rencontre by Sailor, an elegantly marbled pocket-sized delight. Rencontre is French for “encounter,” and the color names follow suit: Gres Fir translates to “Iron Gray,” Bordeaux Fonce is French for “Dark Burgundy,” and Bleu Ciel means “Sky Blue.” The marbling is especially interesting in this design as this is notoriously difficult to achieve with an injection molding process. Due to the nature of marbling, each pen barrel will feature slight variations that only serve to add value to each individual pen.
The Professional Gear Slim Mini comes in at only .52" smaller than the Professional Gear Slim when capped, but is only .43" shorter when posted, so the writing experience is comfortable and authentic. Each Rencontre features a 14K gold, medium-fine nib to compliment the gold-plated accents and ensure a smooth writing experience with a luxurious feel. The size of these pens makes them particularly convenient to have on hand in a jacket pocket or classy clutch so collectors can bring this pen along wherever they wish and enjoy the touch of Rencontre by Sailor.
