Terrific Pen April 24, 2016
Reviewer: Jonathan from Omaha, Nebraska  
This is a very understated pen.  There are certainly pens out there that are flashier, but this one just works.  Balance is great posted, and the body length is good when I just need to jot down a few quick notes.  The 21kt nib is smooth, even as a Japanese Fine nib.  Great service from the Andersons in helping pick out just the right pen.  Thanks!

Nibs are Superb September 21, 2015
Reviewer: Martin Leverton from Kettering, Northamptonshire  
NOTE: I have entered an identical reviews for the Sailor Large Medium nib and Zoom nib, as this review mentions the Naginata Togi nib which is the Zoom's handmade relative.  I own two Sailor pens. Both are the 1911 Large. The nibs are superb. One is a medium nib, and though producing a finer line than a western medium, is extremely smooth. Consequently, it requires very little effort to write with.  My second pen has a Naginata Togi nib. This is similar to the factory standard Zoom nib, but it is finished by hand. My nib is the finest variety (an M-F). The width of the line depends on the angle that you hold the nib, and also whether you write with the nib in the usual position, or with the nib upside down. The nib has been designed for writing either way so it will cause no damage.  As you begin to write with the Togi, you almost instantly find you preferred angle and width, and the nib doesn't ""drift"". It's just like writing with any nib, except that you can produce a wide range of line widths. I reckon that with my nib, I can easily achieve 5 or 6 different width, from extra fine, all the way near a paintbrush!  In my two pens I use the black, and the blue pigment inks. The ink comes in both a bottle and cartridges form (as do some of the Jentle range). Normally, if you buy cartridges for a pen, the cost/ml can be three or more times the cost of the same ink from a bottle. Sailor cartridges are almost (not quite) as cheap to run as the identical bottled ink. Volume for volume, the cartridge ink costs about 1.3 times the bottled ink. This gives me a lot of flexibility, and I really value it.  Sailor's big selling point is their nibs, and they are brilliant. But I also found the body of the pen, and overall construction, to be nicely robust, well designed, and classy. This does not feel like a cheap pen that has an expensive nib attached. The whole the pen is quality.
