The 1911 Series was originally produced over 25 years ago to commemorate the year of The Sailor Pen Company's inception.
The Sailor 1911 fountain pen has become a popular mainstay of the Sailor range. Drawing on 95 years of experience in the manufacture of fountain pens, the 1911 is traditional and elegant in its design.
The 1911 'Large' collection comes equipped with 21-carat gold nibs in a wide selection of widths and styles.
very nice Pen (and very nice shop!)
I had to wait a bit for the pen, because it was not promptly available with this nib (zoom nib), but that was fine.
Regarding this order I had a nice and helpful conversation with the people from TPC.
The start with the pen itself was a bit annoying (may be due to my very high expectations), but anyway, meanwhile, with a wetter ink, it turned out to be a good performer in terms of ink flow and smoothness.
The zoom nib is a very special nib. I guess, I will not use the full capacity of the nib quite often, since I not want to write in the upright position (which is required to obtain a fine line). Neither in the reverse position where the lines are even finer, but the ink flow also veeery weak...
Apart from that I like the design very much. This one doesn't need to hide behind the Montblanc 146 - not at the quite different price tags they have (the nib is very good, but you can not compare it to MB nibs, since they don't have zoom nibs).
