Named after the company's founding year, the 1911 range was made to maintain the standards of quality and craftsmanship that had made Sailor so well respected from their beginnings. The rounded ends give the 1911 a more classic 'cigar' shape than the Pro Gear range, for those who prefer a more traditional look.
Sailor's 1911 Ringless fountain pen in black, with rhodium-plated trim. A slight twist on the standard Large model of 1911 - same pen, same size, but without the decorative ring on the cap, for a more minimalist look. Screw-on cap. 21k gold nib is Sailor's 'Zoom' Nib.
Zoom nibs are akin to double broad nibs when held at 45 degrees, as you tilt the angle of the pen towards 90 degrees, the line narrows to a fine line. They are great fun to write with and offer the possibility of writing with line variation or just simply a smooth double broad.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings. The pen has previously been inked but is in near perfect condition
The nib is a lovely smooth 21k gold Zoom nib, definitely worthy of trying out if you have never written with a Zoom nib!
