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.

This pen is lovely in the Fresca. The nib is smooth as butter and Pen Chalet customer service is fabulous. I like this pen so much I got it in both sizes -- the gold nibs are responsive and top quality, as is typical of Sailor fountain pens.

Sailor fountain pens are one of my favorite Brands. The built quality, the finish, the nibs and writing quality are hard to match at their price range. Their nibs run true to Asian nibs, about one size narrower than western nibs. A Sailor medium nib would be like a Lamy fine, the broad nib however has less of a difference from the western nibs.
I have large hands and this 1911 large feels perfect for me as does the Sailor Professional Gear. I find the proprietary converter to be small in ink capacity, the cartridges hold more ink and can be reused with your favorite ink. I can say watch Ron's review and put this pen on your short list.

This pen is amazing. I tried the Platinum 3776 Century with Ultra Extra Fine nib but found too many issues with ink not flowing. I bought the 1911L with an Extra Fine nib and it worked great right out of the box. The pen did have a minor delay in having ink come out after not using it for a while. However, I switched ink to the Pilot Iroshizuku and used the Sailor converter and this was no longer an issue. The nib is very smooth.

The only disadvantage is that this pen is so amazing you would be hard pressed to justify getting another fountain pen! The service from Pen Chalet was very fast.

A very beautiful and enjoyable pen ! I love the aspect and design if it. The weight feels great. The nib is wonderful, i have the EF, it writes very smoothly just a pure pleasure. It writes a little wet for an EF so on low quality paper you may experience large line and ink on the other side. I would highly recommend this pen!

This is my second Sailor 1911 Large pen. One with a broad nib and the other with a zoom nib. Both pens write with such excellence that I have never seriously been tempted to purchase a very high end fountain pen, like a Mont Blanc. The 21k nibs on these Sailor pens are superb.
I purchased my first pen through Amazon and it was a satisfactory purchase. I purchased my second Sailor pen through Pen Chalet and was even more satisfied with their service and the speed of their packaging and mailing (received my order in three days). They were very responsive to my email and phone inquiries.

Very elegant pen. Nib is fantastic and wet. No writing issues at all. The converter is a bit small in terms of capacity. But a finely crafted pen. Amazing.

I am very impressed about my experience with Pen Chalet, and would recommend this retailer to anyone. The customer service is excellent and friendly. I had an issue with this fountain pen right out of the box- the tines were out of alignment and appeared bent, and the pen wouldn't write. I contacted Pen Chalet and they sent me a replacement which is functioning perfectly. I think that this is one of the smoothest writing extra fine nibs that I have used and everything that I had expected from the pen. However, I am concerned about quality issues with this manufacturer given my experience. It may be a one-off manufacturing defect, but it raises some concern over the manufacturer's quality control process (the pen came in a sealed pouch and was clearly new). Before I contacted Pen Chalet, I contacted the manufacturer's US representative Itoya. Itoya never replied to my messages. If Pen Chalet hadn't stepped up to the plate, I have the impression that I would have been SOL - not a good feeling.
