The 1911 series was designed to honour year founder Sakata Kyūgorō and his brother established the Sailor brand. It began with the construction of the Sakata-Manufactory to producing solid gold nibs, manufactured specifically for fountain pens to create a smooth and enjoyable writing experience.
The 1911 fountain pen uses the same high-quality materials and craftspersonship. The pen has a classic Sailor design, with rounded curves, an anchor emblem on the 14K gold nib, and a black resin body with a gold plated trim. The fountain pen accommodates both the Sailor cartridge and a converter filling mechanism for ink.

As a significant cause of malfunction in fountain pens is lack of use, during which ink can solidify, the maker recommends using the pen daily.
Clean the pen every 2-3 months.
