The 1911 Series was introduced over 30 years ago and continues to be a very popular choice among discerning writers world-wide. Offered here in the 'large' format with the famous Naginata-togi 21K gold nib in medium-fine, medium and broad widths, to give the ultimate smooth and consistent writing experience. The Naginata-Togi nib, being longer than other nibs, allows a wider range of writing angles to comfortably accommodate many writing styles.

Also available in smooth black and gold trim with the Cross Emperor nib.
Most excellent pen

My Sailor 1911 holds pride of place in my pen collection! my collection is not large but does include a Platignum, a Lamy, a couple of older Parker pens, a wonderful Levenger, from France and of course my 1911. I brought this pen of an English chap who moved here to New Zealand a good number of years ago and was one of his personal pens and he had put on it a "Music" nib. The music nib is a broad nib suitable for doing a small bit of calligraphy and all in all is one heck of a fine (good) nib !!!
So it is safe to say if I was starting afresh buying fountain pens this would near or at the top of my list of pens to buy & own !!!
A different experience
The pen itself is virtually identical to my Platinum President pen, which I love. The nib is like nothing else I have written with. Fantastically smooth and wet. I am not used to writing at different angles for different widths, but this nib will deliver if you can. I love the fine writing it gives when used upside down. I guess the nib falls between two camps - it is not quite normal but it is not a real italic type nib. I love it, but find it rather challenging to write nicely with. The pen was out of stock when I ordered, and the shop contacted me very quickly to discuss whether I wanted to wait or cancel the order. It came within their suggested timetable, was well packaged, and I am very pleased with this seller. I have used them several times and have always been impressed.
I love this pen.

Having decided to get back to writing with a "proper" pen and knowing my Montblanc Meisterstuck leaks like a tap and hasn't been used for over 10 years, after reading many reports decided on the Sailor 1911 for my birthday, it is a joy to write with and doesn't leak!!!!!!
The Naginata-Togi renowned nib is lovely...the ink flows seamlessly across the page.
I'm just annoyed I wasted the last 10-15 years without a real pen due to a leaky Montblanc!
