Sailor's mission is to proudly maintain the long heritage they have built over 100 years of quality and technical excellence and perfection. Made exclusively in their own factory in Hiroshima, Japan, using the best quality materials available, Sailor's pens and inks are much loved and sought-after throughout the world.
The Sailor 1911 Realo is a large, piston fill fountain pen made from resin. Its cap is screw-fit, while the pen is adorned 24c gold-plated trim. It comes fitted with a fabulous quality, smooth 21c gold nib available in a choice of widths, from extra fine (which is very fine- much more so than the European standard), up to broad, including the unique zoom and music nibs.
The 1911 Realo is a piston-filled fountain pen only, so must be filled with bottled ink. It has a small ink-view window, measures 18mm in diameter and 141mm in length. The pen comes boxed with original sleeve and papers, a near mint example.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings. The pen has previously been inked but is in near perfect condition. Only the lightest signs of handling. The gold outer sleeve (not the hardcase itself) shows signs of wear to its edges
The nib is a lovely smooth Fine nib, which is on the finer side of fine. Sailor nibs do offer a little feedback, just enough to feel the page is there, but smooth enough to bring lasting satisfaction
