Sailor is renowned for the high quality and smooth writing characteristics of their nibs, and the smooth-writing 14k nibs provided with the 1911 Mid-Size series are no exception. 




The 1911 Mid-Size is a cartridge-converter pen which can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, and can also use Sailor brand ink cartridges.






The 1911 Mid-Size is available with your choice of 14k nib, available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium-Fine, Medium, Broad, Music and Zoom. 14k nibs are well-suited to our customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, Left Oblique and Architect's point.

The 1911 Mid-Size in Black with gold trim is also available with 21k Naginata-Togi nibs in Naginata Medium-Fine, Naginata Medium, or Naginata Broad when available.

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

As the Sailor 1911 Mid-Size fountain pen arrives in a satin-lined presentation box, it makes as wonderful gift.
