Using Sailor's original technique, this series weaves acrylic resin with marble textures
Sailor Pro Gear Slim Mini Rencontre Bleu Ciel Fountain Pen
Meaning encounter in French, the Rencontre series explores the interplay between elegant marble patterns and the no-nonsense material they are made from. Crafting this marble effect from acrylic resin has long been considered too difficult, but Sailor has developed their own techniques, creating beautiful swirled designs with a rugged and uncompromising substance. Each pattern is slightly different owing to how the materials mix during the injection-moulding process, allowing you to encounter your own one-of-a-kind marble patterned pen. The Rencontre is offered in a miniaturised version of the iconic Pro Gear Slim range and features the same distinctive cut away cap and inlaid anchor logo to the finial. Bleu Ciel matches a blue toned marble effect barrel with gleaming gold trim and ivory white cap, grip and barrel end.
