Sailor 1911 Classic Black Luster Fountain Pen
The Sailor 1911 Classic Black Luster Fountain Pen is Sailor’s very successful response to the demand for entirely black pens – but the story doesn’t end with its appearance.
The looks are, of course, stunning. The play betwen the black resin and the black appointments – that’s all the metal bits – together with the section and the nib is perfect – and the black nib looks amazing.
Looks aren’t everything, though, and the metal section (the bit that you hold) adds just a couple of grams to the pens weight, but it’s at just the right place to give even better balance and an entirely stress free writing experience. Placing the additional weight in the section makes a noticeable difference to the heft of the pen.
The only slight downside is that it comes only with the EF, F and M nib (in 21 carat gold): due to the ruthenium coating, it can’t be swapped with other Sailor nibs to offer larger sizes. but, overall, this is a pen that performs as, and looks the part of, a classic.
