Customer Reviews

Large 1911 Stormy Sea
L-O-V-E this fountain pen. It was literally love after first ink. Writes smoothly with the subtlest of feedback which is satisfying instead of distracting. Ink flow is excellent. Neither too wet nor too dry.

The Stormy Sea has a metallic sheen to it which makes it extremely attractive.

Pen is quite light and whatever weight it does have, it feels extremely balanced and writes with you instead of against you.

Maybe it's just me but this pen is rhodium plated and I felt that the nib is slightly stiffer than the same 24k Gold on the Sailor 1911L Black and Gold. The stiffness is only very slight and still produces the same lines as the standard.

I would definitely recommend this pen to anyone interested in a gold nib fountain pen looking for not so thick lines.

On the smaller side but writes beautifully out of the box. Not a skip and/or issue on a daily use.

1911 Large Royal Tangerine
Picked this up with a music nib. This is my first Sailor and I must say I am impressed. The pen feels good in the hand and the nib is excellently tuned right out of the box. I tried a Monteverde ink and was very disappointed with the ink flow. I flushed it and tried Noodler's dark matter. Now it writes like a soaking wet sharpie. Absolutely love this pen. The orange is very vibrant and true to the pictures.

Shikiori Four Seasons (20ml)
Red-brown that leans heavily toward the red with gold sheen. Unique color, I’ve seen a lot of inks and I can’t think of any that match this. Reds are of rare-use for me, so I appreciated the smaller volume. Behaves well, moderate flow, reasonably fast drying for fountain pen ink, ~10-15 sec on Rhodia. Really like this one, the gold sheen makes it special!

1911 Standard Royal Tangerine
This is my first Sailor pen, and I am very impressed. My medium nib (I’d say it’s ~ same as a western steel fine) has a smooth and pleasant graphite-like feel to it, which I’ve never experienced before, although other reviewers have commented on this being a Sailor hallmark. I originally paired the pen with a dry ink that had hard start issues and didn’t pair nicely with the nib’s feedback. Switched in one of my pilot iroshizuku inks, which are known for being moderately wet, and now it’s just perfect. I can keep it uncapped during the entirety of an hour-long meeting with intermittent writing and it doesn’t hard start at all. This plus the smooth feel of the nib and the unique, pleasant feedback justifies the price to me. Virtually no flex in the nib, but I think the slight give it does have reminds me it’s not steel.
I have medium-sized hands (by latex glove sizing) and I find this pen comfortable with or without posting. Those with large hands may find it to be a bit too small. It’s light and well balanced without feeling cheap, though I would have liked a little more heft in the material, particularly in the section. The orange color slightly changes depending on the lighting environment (fluorescent vs. incandescent, which I think is why so many people online say pictures don’t do it justice) but I don’t think it ever ventures into a super-obnoxious neon orange. In my book, this is just textbook orange, my favorite color :) Hope that info helps!

Professional Gear Slim Purple Cosmos
The Pro Gear Slim Purple Cosmos is more beautiful in person than in photos. I like that it has sparkles, yet its appearance is subtle.

When posted, it's a comfortable size in the hand and feels balanced. I chose the music nib, which gives me some line variation and shows off inks. The nib was perfect right out of the box. I've kept it inked since I got it. Wonderful pen.

1911 Large Royal Tangerine
21K HM nib.
Orange is one of my favorite colors, and I really enjoy Sailor pens, so I splurged and bought this for my birthday.
The pen is typical for Sailor -- an excellent nib for writing. The nib has a nice amount of flex on the downstroke, so it helps create a nice script.
I love the size of the pen.
The only "ding" is that I got some ink on the barrel thread for the cap. It cleaned right up, but I don't have this issue with pens with darker barrels.

This is a superior pen. I bought the Fresca color and I love this color. The pen has been amazing. But what is better than the pen is The Pen Chalet. Their customer service is the best I have experienced from an online seller.

Had some issues with the nib at first, but Pen Chalet was very responsive and made things right ASAP. Now one of my best writers (along with my Platinum 3776). My only complaint is it feels a little small in my hand, but that is an issue of design not performance.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
This line of ink is the best, bar none. Never had a flow issue in any of my pens, and even performs well (and safely) in my vintage Esterbrooks. The range of colors are phenominal (I have 11 different colors), and my absolute favorite is Yama-dori. Many sheen and shade well, but the properties do vary a little from ink to ink. To bad about the just announced new bottles and price increase. I'm stocking up now!!!
