Given my infatuation with Sailor ink and Gentian's incessant praise on their pens, I decided to check it out for myself. I was attracted by Sailor Lecoule's design with the colored translucent cap in contrast to the pearly white body. The bottom tip of the pen matches with the cap in color. Besides green, it is available in navy blue, red, black, and purple.

|The cap. It is almost a half demonstrator.|
|Isn't she a beauty?|

|Plain nib design, only has Sailor's anchor insignia|
When looked closely, the tines on Lecoule's nib hug very closely to the feed, unlike some other nibs where the tines extended out a bit further, which resemble a sting ray.

In my opinion, it is a nice entry level pen, especially for those people who are interested in Japanese fine nib. Its feather weight ensure portability, and the simple design is aesthetically appealing.
