The 1911 Large, also known as the 1911 Full-Size in some markets, is Sailor's flagship model, features an elegantly tapered design and the amazingly smooth-writing 21k nibs for which Sailor is renowned. This Sailor 1911L has a clear barrel with gold trim. At 5.5 inches long capped, this is a pen that will be a comfortable fit for most hands.
The Sailor 1911 Large fountain pen in clear with gold trim is a cartridge-converter pen that can be filled with bottled ink using the Sailor converter or proprietary cartridges, both of which are included. It ships in an attractive presentation box. Sailor has a company history stretching back to 1911, and a reputation for quality and value that few other pen manufacturers can ever hope to match.

This Sailor was my second demonstrator and very nicely made

I had the std size version of this very pen, and wanted the LARGE - I was a bit surprised to see it is only a hair longer and a skosh bigger in diameter. So it is larger than the std version of the 1911, but not LARGE but most FP standards. The 'zoom' nib is a size larger than the std 1911, and of course, they both write smooth and wet. I am pleased, just wish it had been LARGE (rather than largER).

A little disappointed...
This is nothing against Anderson Pens. They shipped the product and it got here wicked fast. I have nothing against them. It's the feel of the Sailor nib. Perhaps it's just me (I've been writing with Edison Menlo with a medium steel nib and love the feel of it), but the medium gold Sailor nib feels really scratchy, and it does not lay down even ink on certain strokes (like side-to-side versus up-down). This is how it felt right out of the box. Weird. Perhaps it's the Japanese nib thing, and I'm learning that I'm not a fan of it. It writes okay, but it does not have the silky smooth feel that my Edison Menlo's do.
