Customer Reviews

Sailor 1911 Standard Wicked Witch of the West
I am not much into purple pens, but I'm glad I gambled and purchased the pen. The pen looks much nicer in person than it does in the photograph. I ordered mine with a medium fine point nib.
I am a little disappointed with the consistency of Sailor nibs.
Eventually, I am going to venture out of my comfort shell and order a broad to a music nib.

Sailor Pigmented Ink(50ml)
I ended up purchasing this ink from an empty bottle purchase from Pen Chalet. There was just enough ink left in the bottle to see the color. That was all it took. I could tell it was a shade of blue that I wanted in my ink inventory.
If you are looking for a nice deep blue ink with good flow, then I can definitely recommend this ink.

Sailor 1911 Standard Loch Ness Monster
Who doesn't want to find the Loch Ness? I ordered my Loch Ness with a medium fine point nib. The medium-fine nib seems to be a good balance between a fine & medium point nib while being a smoother writing nib than the fine point. I do like the way this nib writes.
Pen Chalet does a great job of getting the orders out in a timely fashion.
Also, I have the Wicked Witch of the West (both pens purchased from Pen Chalet) with a medium fine point nib.
I rated a few of the items a 4 due to the consistency of between the nibs. The Wicked is a smoother writer. I'm too much of a fountain pen newbie to know how to tweak the nibs.
It won't keep me from ordering Sailors from Pen Chalet.

Sailor Shikiori Four Seasons Cartridge(3pk)
Perfect little cartridges for your Sailor pens! I love that they have cartridges for their inks that aren't just standard black and blue. The Shikiori line is wonderful, though of course this isn't the most economical way to buy ink.

Sailor 1911 Standard Loch Ness Monster
This has to be one of the best writing Sailor pens that I have. The description states the trim is "black, ion-plated band, trim rings and clip". To me it's not really black. I would call it a dark grey. I prefer this color and matte finish over the highly polished chrome and gold. The pen has a nice feel to it and has a nice balance in my hand whether or not I post the cap. The pen feels so light, you think it might float out of your hand.
This is the first time I ordered the medium fine nib and I think this will be my go to nib for Sailor pens.
Eventually I would like to learn to use Sailor's Music or Zoom nib.

Sailor 1911 Pirate's Life Large
Great pen as always from Sailor. I always get MF or M nib in the Large 1911. I really like the “Mustard” color of this body. I’ve paired it with Iroshizuku “Ina-Ho” and I love it! Sailors are my favorite daily writers.

Sailor Pigmented Ink(50ml)
I inked my Vintage East German Piston filler ( Made withTrabant plastic) with this ink.

The pen writes faster now. It has a bit more “wetter” feeling yet with lighting rapid dry time. Perfect for every writing, work, personal, letters.
When i run out of this ink i will be sure to get more!

Beautiful Blue with a hink of Blue- black. A Very satisfying ink over all.

Gorgeous!
I inked my Sailor “Wicked Witch” with “Colorado”, a beautiful purple gray- well behaved.

I am certain to get another colour soon.!

As always - pen Chalet is fast and their customer service is extremely fast and very nice.

Pretty black-gray with a lean towards purple. Not using it with a nib that shows a lot of shading, but I see the ink's potential.

Sailor 1911 Standard
Everything that's been said about Sailor pens is true. The body is petite but fits well in my smaller hand. The nib has a pleasant feedback and it's inked with a Sailor Shikiori ChuShu cartridge. This pen is in high rotation now.

Sailor Manyo (50ml)
Sailor Manyo bottles are heavy glass, perfect design either to ink pens or brushes. Nice delicate logo. The ink is exactly as Pen Chalet's photo (appreciate it) with medium flow, easy cleaning, a bit of shade depending on the paper.Some inks don't bring the sample option but Pen Chalet has always had those that I want to try first before getting a full ink bottle. Always screwed tightly so I never receive them with leaks instead perfectly secure, clean, well packed and fast delivery from Pen Chalet!

Sailor 1911 Standard Wicked Witch of the West
It was a gift for my wife she loves pens, ink and paper. A big hit. The quality of the pen and the under stated design are perfect. I bought it for those reasons but also was intriqued by the Sailor story.

Come Sail Away!
This is the very first Sailor made pen I’ve ever written with. It is very satisfying!

I bought a fine. For work i tabulate sections spread sheets by hand ( the computer spread sheets often miss the trends by too much data). Also i must fill in with blue ink only in tiny dates and details ls in legal forms. I take notes from clients calls and interviews. my signsture must be in indelible blue in in often tiny areas- i used this pen day one of recieving it.!)

The speed at which it writes is astounding- utterly reliable.
I chose the sailor blue black carts for ease of use at work.

unboxing this pen in the sunlight at lunch i gasped. The luminous and subtle sparkle combined with a delicious hint of transparency. won my heart.
It quickky settles down to work and appeats to be a professional orderly pen at the office, yet highly unique so if accidentally taken i can say profoundly “ THAT IS MY PEN!”!

Pen Chalet won the race!

last week after i paid all bills, i wanted a treat for my birthday so my largest expense was this pen ( worth every cent) - but i ordered from 3 other oen companies some small items on the same day- same time- for fun to see who shipped to me first! It was Pen Chalet! Fast and always prompt on customer care!

Sailor Professional Gear Pillow Book Slim
I love this pen ... the colour is beautiful; it's a deep blue-green that looks classy but has more character than just a plain black pen. The nib is wonderfully smooth but with just a bit of feedback which I absolutely prefer as a pen that's too smooth moves across the paper too fast for me to write neatly. This is definitely in my top 5 favorite pens.

Sailor Standard 1911 Stormy Sea
This was my very first Sailor fountain pen. After hearing for years about how good they are, this one just struck my eye and I picked it up. The quality is superb and the nib is fantastic—I went Medium Fine for my initial foray. It's one of my favorite writers and regularly in my rotation. :)

Sailor Manyo (50ml)
I'm in love with soft, muted, pastel inks. The Sailor Mayo Nekoyanagi is just so very beautiful especially in use with a broad nib. It shades wonderfully. Starts darker and proceeds to get lighter and then some more shading happens...it's just lovely. If you are into soft, muted, pastel inks, this ink is for you!

Sailor Shikiori
The ink bottle met my expectations. It was in excellent shape. It was empty as I expected, but there was a little dab of ink remaining so that I was able to wet a Q-tip and make a swab on a piece of paper. This gives me "real world" look at the ink to help me decide in the future whether or not I would want to purchase a bottle of the ink.

Love the pastel choices! They are sheer and offer up nice shading attributes - they are a bit costly, but for me they were worth it for the sheer pastels that shade nicely in flex nibs.
