Sailor 1911 Large Anchor Grey Fountain Pen Review

I’ve been a big fan of Sailor pens for a while now. I don’t know how I’ve managed to avoid reviewing a 1911 Large for so long. This large pen (okay, it’s not that large) is presented in an exclusive color called Anchor Gray that’s only available in North America. The “large” models feature a larger 21kt gold nib, a bit more heft, and a slight increase in both length and diameter. The 1911L is a pretty pricey pen, with a street price of $288. Can this Sailor weather the storm? Read on to find out.

Review Redux – The Sailor Imperial Black Fountain Pen

I can’t believe I bought this pen four years ago. It feels like just yesterday when I was waiting for the mail to come, rushing downstairs, and opening up the package directly from Japan. I purchased the pen in January of 2013 for around $280. This one has a fine nib, which is quite fine. It features all black everything. The pen is still in my collection, but how much does it get used, how is it holding up over the years, and would I buy it again? Read on to find out!
