Sailor 1911 Full-Size Realo Black Silver

For many years, customers asked if pens in Sailor's popular Realo piston-filler series could be made available in rhodium trim. With the introduction of the 1911 Black Realo Silver, this wish has been fulfilled - and with all the sophistication and superb writing qualities to be expected from the Sailor brand.

The pen is nice, but pricey for what you get. It is a pretty standard Sailor but uses a plunger filling mechanism, which I prefer to the cartrage converter. It is very handsome, writes well and has decent ink capacity. Beyond that, buying from was just awesome. I adore the fact that they include a handwritten message using the pen you order to show it writes and shows any custom work you have done to it. If you want to buy a pen but are worried in the slightest that you'll get a nib that doesn't function well without additional work, this is the company to order from. They actually provide proof positive they have tuned and smoothed the nib (if you request that and at no additional charge) and verified that you are not getting something that you'll need to send out for additional work. I would give this pen 4/5 stars because of the price to features ratio, but the service and experience of ordering from is 5/5 every single time. I will never buy another fountain pen from anywhere else.

The Sailor 1911 Full-Size Realo Black with Silver Trim fountain pen is provided standard with your choice of solid gold rhodium-plated 21k nib.

A limited number of rhodium-plated Sailor Specialty Nibs, including the Concord and Naginata-Togi series nibs, are also available for this pen for an additional cost.

The 1911 Full-Size Realo in Black with Silver Trim maintains the classic tapered shape of the 1911 Series. Sailor's reliable piston-filler mechanism, developed especially for the Realo series, allows this pen to be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink. The ink window indicates when it it time to refill. Piston-fill systems are favored by many pen aficionados allowing for the use of any fountain pen ink. 

A silver-plated clip allows the 1911 Realo to be easily affixed to a shirt pocket, and the rounded end cap stands out just above the pocket line.


The larger of Sailor 21k tip sizes are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique.


The Sailor 1911 Full-Size Realo Black with Silver Trim fountain pen arrives in a simple but elegant satin-lined Sailor presentation box.

Unless requested otherwise, each pen you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships.
