The Sailor 1911 Realo fountain pen features a piston filling mechanism and an ink window that is visible even with the cap on, so that you can see how much ink is available before you take the cap off to use the pen. Based on the Sailor 1911 Large model, this pen holds a generous amount of ink. The smooth writing quality of the wide selection of 21k nibs available for this model is a testament to the 95 years experience in writing instruments. The pen is made of black resin with gold-plated trim and comes with your choice of all seven 21k gold nib options, which are Extra-Fine, Fine, Medium, Medium-Fine, Broad, Zoom and Music. Some nibs like Medium Fine, and Zoom may be special order and will ship in 60-90 days. We try to always keep all nibs in stock at all times, but inventory changes daily.
As an Authorized Sailor Dealer we have the ability to order just about any of the seven standard 21kt nibs (Extra Fine, Fine, Medium Fine, Medium, Broad, Zoom, Music) on any 1911 Realo fountain pen. Some models do not carry all seven nibs and some are special order from Japan. Our stock changes constantly so if you have any questions, please Contact Us for more info!

Wonderful pen and wonderful service
"The nib, ef, feels smooth and sharp, which I love since I mostly write formulas. The pen may seem a bit large for people with small hands, but I have to admit that it cuddles perfectly in my hand. I would have liked the pen a bit heavier, but this is just personal taste.
Finally the service has been impeccable: the item was shipped after one day via usps and the feedback was prompt and useful."

It never ceases to amaze me how great Sailor pens are. I decided to splurge on a Realo and the classic torpedo shape of the 1911 was my first choice. Classic lines and the pen writes smooth and perfect out of the box. I first saw this pen at least years Dallas Pen Show but didn't buy it, getting a 1911 Standard instead. I couldn't get it out of my head and now that tax season is done, I couldn't wait until the pen show this year. Thanks Andersons!

Sailor 1911 Realo
The pen is smaller than anticipated in the hand, but has excellent build quality, and an exceptional nib with just a bit of feedback, with an increased ink capacity over a C/C pen. The design of the ink window is a vast improvement over most of the market, as the ink level is always visible, and Sailor actually found a way to make an ink window look attractive. Very well done smaller pen.
