The Sailor 1911 Large fountain pen, also known as the 1911 Full-Size in some markets, is Sailor's flagship model, which features an elegantly tapered design and the amazingly smooth-writing 21k nibs for which Sailor is renowned. Deer occupy a significant place in Japanese culture, and they freely roam the grounds of the Buddhist temple at Nara. The deer on this Sailor Maki-e fountain pen is shown under a flowering dogwood tree, as the embodiment of tranquility. Sailor has emulated this in the 1911 Large Maki-e Deer fountain pen, with a 21k gold nib.
This deer shown prone at rest among foliage, is spotted with white spots, made of silver metal. A variety of materials are used in the branches, leaves, and flowers of this tree. Gold and silver dust, and tiny bits of raden,or abalone make up the tree limb, which twines under the clip and around the cap. The Sailor Maki-e fountain pen is the same size and has the same converter/cartridge filling mechanism as the 1911L. It comes in a small softwood box with a proprietary Sailor piston
converter for use with bottled ink, two extra cartridges and all
