Sailor 1911 Standard Fountain Pen 14K
Great pen with a fantastic nib
Love this pen already. I have a few pilot pens so I know how well Japanese nibs are made. Sailor makes some of the best nibs in the world and their fine is really fine. I got the red one with the black trim. Elegant. And the best part is I grabbed this baby on sale for a ridiculously low price. Thank you Levenger.

Good Japanese pen
I love the feel of this pen and the blue color. The web site picture does not do justice to the blue color of this pen. With the pen capped, I really like the size; if I didn't post my cap I think I might find the pen a bit small. The fine nib is definitely finer than a MontBlanc fine. I'm finding it a little stiffer than expected, but it may just need some breaking in. Wish that Levenger had had the pen available in the medium-fine nib.

Like the pen a lot
The pen feels a bit on the light side in weight. It does not feel as solid as others such as Waterford fountain pens. The overall feeling of it, nevertheless, is quite satisfying. One notable thing is that the refill cartriges are pricy compared to other brands. But I do enjoy writing with this pen a lot. I'd have to say it's money well spent.
