Sailor Fountain Pen

Today, I was in the San Francisco Shopping Centre, looking for a GRE review book and a dictionary, and, of course, I stopped into the Maido stationery store to test-drive some fountain pens. I was especially curious about the Pilot Vanishing Point pens, since whenever I research fountain pens online, I always come across people who love that pen. I tried one that had a medium nib, and wasn't especially impressed. I was, however, impressed with the Sailor Sapporo. It's a little smaller than pens I use, and the nib looks smaller than other nibs I have used, but the ink flow was smooth and pleasant. I may have to save up for one.
