Excellent shopping experience! This my 2nd Sailor Pen and I am loving it! The extra-fine nib was just what I was looking for, perfect for small notes and the 1911 Large size is very comfortable in my hand to use. Can be absolutely recommended!

This is a really nice pen and the first somewhat expensive fountain pen I've ever bought. Beautiful looks. Solid, quality construction feels good in the hand. Fine-point nib gives a nicely variable line with just-right feedback on paper. I do wish it were a little heavier for the price, however. Service from Pen Chalet was awesome. Overall, I'm very happy with this product and business.

I own other expensive pens. The 1911 fountain broad nib is exquisite. It has become my go to pen. It writes smoothly, every time and first time.

I was impressed by various reviews and videos of the Sailor 1911L. I wanted this style because I have huge hands and most pens are hard for me to use. I always considered buying a Meisterstuck Mont Blanc but the prices have been out of reach. I've used a friend's once and the size was perfect but I thought that perhaps the famous brand name is why it is overpriced. Since the Sailor is a much lower cost, roughly the same size with a 25K gold nib, and apparently as good as or better than Mont Blanc pens, I decided to buy the 1911L with the medium music nib. That pen is great but I am still having problems getting just the right angle to make the script how I would like. I tried to replace the music nib with a fine nib but that seems to be impossible. During the Pen Day Sale, I decided to break down and get another Sailor 1911L with a fine nib. I have been using it regularly and it is an absolute joy to handle. I am using a ink converter and love the Sailor ink. I am impressed with how gracefully the nib moves across the page with hardly any effort. I am writing a memoir, almost every day. I prefer writing this way more than with a computer. I love the flow of handwriting, the texture of fine paper, the look of the text, despite my poor handwriting. Using a computer takes away the sensual act of writing and must affect the style of writing. I will use the music nib for sketching, where its great character creates more flexibility. I hope some of you will consider taking advantage of the Black Friday deals and buy this excellent pen.

This is a beautiful pen, great size, classic looks; I have 2, the Fresca and the Gray Anchor. Both in M-F nib, which is a nice compromise, my Sailor Pro Gear medium is extremely wet and I can't use it on bulk legal pads at work. As with all Sailor nibs, there is a little feedback, but I like it. Right now, I would say the Fresca is my #1 fave pen in my collection (for some reason the Fresca nib is slightly better than the Anchor, not sure why).

Excellent pen. The smoothest nib that I own and a great pleasure to write with. Medium Fine nib. The anchor gray color is muted and appropriate for work, school, or at home. The shape of the pen is classic and conservative, with the rhodium accents rather than gold. The size is great. I was worried about getting a "large" but if anything I would actually want it a bit longer. Compares favorably to Pilot Custom Heritage 92 and Platinum Century 3776, which I also own. 100% recommend this pen and I look forward to any future US specific special limited edition colors.

I ordered the Anchor Grey limited edition and am quite pleased with both the appearance and, most importantly the performance, of the pen. Highly recommended pen for every day use.

This pen is just phenomenal. The Anchor Gray color is stunning and I have nothing like it. I chose the F nib and it's lovely, smooth with some feedback. As always, Pen Chalet's customer service is outstanding.

I can imagine what the pen strokes look like with the various nibs, except the "zoom" nib. What is that?
Asked on Dec 31 2015 by Ken
A:
The zoom nib will vary in thickness based on the angle you write. The steeper angle will produce a finer line.

Good day. What is the difference between the Sailor 1911 Large and the Sailor 1911 Realo.

A:
The Saior 1911 Realo comes with a built in piston fill mechanism. On the Sailor 1911 Standard or Large fountain pen it uses an ink cartridge or converter. The Sailor 1911 Large is also bigger in size than a Sailor 1911 Realo pen.

Sailor 1911 Large Video



Video Script

This is the Sailor 1911 Large Fountain Pen. It comes in a blue, faux leather box. It has the Sailor logo embossed in gold on top. The box has a hinge top to it. It has a satin underside on the lid with the Sailor logo, once again in gold, and a soft velvet bed for the pen.

This is the black and rhodium version of the Sailor 1911 Large Fountain Pen. It has a black, glossy resin cap and barrel with chrome accents. On the top of the cap of the pen is a small chrome band that attaches to a chrome-colored clip. And then there are two bands that run around the center of the pen, or the bottom of the cap. We have a small band, and then on the larger band we have engraved into that larger band, "Sailor Japan Founded 1911." And then we have a small chrome band at the tip of the barrel, with a rounded end to the barrel. It also has a rounded end on the cap as well, kind of a bullet-shape to the pen.

The cap on the pen unscrews from the pen. It has a small chrome band between the grip section and the rest of the barrel, and then it has a chrome-colored nib. It's a 21 karat gold nib. It has the Sailor logo on the nib with 1911 and some other etchings. It's a nice looking nib. Sailor makes some fantastic nibs.

The nib section, or grip section, unscrews from the barrel to replace the ink. So you can insert either a cartridge or a converter into this section of the pen. Both a cartridge and a converter are included with the pen. Those will be found under the false bottom of the box. We have two ink cartridges included with the pen, as well as a Sailor ink converter and the writing instructions for the pen.

The cap also can be posted on the pen. This is a little bit larger than the 1911 standard, but it basically has the same look, with just a little bit thicker barrel. It's about the same length. This is a great writing instrument.
