1911 Large
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!

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
Never thought I'd say something like this, but I love this ink. The flow and feel of it in my fine-point Sailor 1911 Large is just great--smooth and consistent. And the color is not a common black, or ordinary blue, but an interesting combo of blue and black with maybe a hint of dark green. It's like a deep ocean color--just the thing for a Sailor. (You gotta admit that's clever.)

1911 Large
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.

Professional Gear Slim Purple Cosmos
my first sailor pen and i'm very pleased with it. i have been trying various pens and this pen is a nice addition to my shirt pocket. the purple sparkle is really nice and the nib, while it needs a slight tuning, feels much better than a steel nib. my only down points are the uncapped length is a bit short for me and i would prefer a physically larger nib. these are just personal preferences and detract in no way from the pen. i would certainly keep sailor on my buy list.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
Lovely ink with interesting teal colour. Needs to be well-lit to really shine as tends to look a little like dark green in dim light.
Fantastic fast international delivery from Pen Chalet to UK, would definitely use again.

Like all my Sailor's the nib is wonderful (I got a Fine-Medium). The color is unique as well. Very happy with the pen, but then like McDonald's there is a consistency that assures if you have 1 of these and like it, you will like this as well. (I say this in a GOOD way!). As to Pen Chalet itself, this was my first order from you. I was VERY pleased. Everyone else was out of stock on this. You not only had it in stock, PC was swift in answering questions and sending the order out. I am exceptionally pleased with PC and will be ordering in the future!

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
I purchased two colors from Pen Chalet, Kin Moukusi and Chu Shu, and absolutely love them.

Kin Moukusi shades even in fine nibs. It's an unabashedly orange orange. There really isn't any other way to describe it-- it's just very orange. it's my new favorite Ink.

Chu Shu was a smidgen of a let down. In pictures it comes across as a dusty purple. My bottle is a dupe for diamine Earl Grey. Sure, it's a great grey-- maybe my favorite kind of grey-- but I thought I was buying a dusty purple.

Pen Chalet's service was great. My bottles arrived in perfect condition.

This was my first Pen Chalet order and I would absolutely order from them again.

Jentle Bottled Ink(50ml)
The Sailor Jentle Yama-Dori ink is slow-drying, but worth it. It is a genuine teal with beautiful shading, pretty enough for joy and still dark enough for the office. I've read it gets a reddish sheen under the right conditions, but I haven't seen that yet.

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.

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!
