The fountain pen was demonstrated one of the British sailors who was visiting Japan at the time.
Mr.Sakata was so impressed by the design and function that he made the decision to produce such fine products in Japan himself.
And there it was…. he was determined to make the most elegant and sophisticated writing instruments with the highest level of specification and writing performance available anywhere else in the world then and today.
