  • Additional

The Sailor 1911 Large fountain pen is indeed a classic from this much-esteemed Japanese manufacturer of luxury writing instruments - and at a reasonable price.

The '1911' name of this extended family of pens first appeared in 2011, in celebration of the centenary of Sailor's founding, so the Sailor 1911 Classic fountain pen is following a well-established tradition of excellence and quality. The pen has accompaniments in a choice of gold or silver, comprising the beautifully-restrained clip and double cap bands, the larger of which is engraved "Sailor Japan Founded 1911", and slim bands at the section and the base finial of the pen barrel. In a nice touch, the converter that is supplied with the Sailor 1911 Classic is also plated to match the exterior trim.

Sailor's nibs are renowned for their quality, and the 21 carat gold nib on the Sailor 1911 Classic fountain pen is no exception. Like the pens, the nibs are made in Japan. Note that the range of nib sizes available for these pens differs according to the colour and marque of the 1911 Classic you choose.
