In honor of Sailor’s foundation year, the 1911 Series was introduced to maintain the high quality craftsmanship and materials used from the beginning. The smooth writing quality of the wide selection of 21K nibs available for this model is a testament to the 100 years experience in writing instruments. Enjoy this traditional style with elegance and quality.
The Sailor 1911 Black Luster fountain pen adds understated modern style to the flagship 1911 Full-Size Series. This writing instrument maintains the classic tapered shape and smooth 21k nibs for which Sailor is so well-known, yet adds unique design elements that complement both form and function.
Notice the specially weighted metallic gripping section, which complements the monochromatic, streamlined look and also adds to the balance for those who prefer a pen with a weightier gripping section. The gripping section is the ideal location to add extra weight to a fountain pen - many find this added heft where the thumb and finger meet leads to greater control and ease of writing.
All the nibs of the 1911 Full-Size (Large) are made of 21 carat gold, which gives them a very smooth feel on paper. The 21 carat gold, but also the polishing of the tip of the nib in iridium which protects the gold, make this nib an exceptional piece in the world of gold nibs.
