Sailor 1911 Standard Fountain Pen - Black with Gold Trim

The Sailor 1911 Standard fountain pen in Black with gold-plated trim is a terrific everyday writer from Sailor, a company which is renowned for the high quality and smooth writing characteristics of their nibs. The 1911 Standard fountain pen, also known as the 1911 Mid-Size in some markets, is the perfect choice for those looking for a stylish and smooth-writing pen with a 14k nib that is also highly affordable. The slightly bigger sibling is the 1911 Large fountain pen, that may work better for larger hands.

The Sailor 1911 Standard fountain pen in Black with gold-plated trim is a cartridge-converter pen that can be filled with bottled ink using the Sailor converter or proprietary cartridges, both of which are included. It ships in an attractive presentation box. Sailor has a company history stretching back to 1911, and a reputation for quality and value that few other pen manufacturers can ever hope to match.

As an Authorized Sailor Dealer we have the ability to order just about any of the seven standard 14kt nibs (Extra Fine, Fine, Medium Fine, Medium, Broad, Zoom, Music) on any 1911 Standard fountain pen.

Fun with line variation September 21, 2015
Reviewer: Steph Y from Philadelphia, PA  
This is a neat pen.  It's professional on the outside, and pure fun on the inside.  The fit and finish of Sailor pens are predictably wonderful.  The cartridge/converter filler is convenient and accessible.  The pen is light, and its weight is balanced either posted or unposted.

The brilliance of this pen is all in the fun Zoom nib.  It is ground so that the line width widens as you write in an increasing angle.  The narrowest line is achieved when the pen is at a 90 degree angle to the paper, and the broadest line is achieved when the pen is at ~20 degree angle.  So the pen is really a fine-medium-broad all in one. With practice, one can even mimic the line variation of flex writing.

In sum, this is a fun and versatile pen to have tucked in one's pocket.
