About This Product
Sailor Compass 1911 is an outstanding option in the crowded field of sub-$30 fountain pens, offering a distinguished look, durable construction, and the proven performance of Sailor nibs. Available exclusively in Sailor's MF (medium fine) nib size, the Compass 1911 produces a skipless, saturated 0.5 mm line that's perfect for most writing.
In our studio test, we loved the precision and tactile experience of Compass 1911's stainless steel nib. There's more feedback with this nib than others of a similar width—it reminded our testers of the feeling of writing with a pencil. That analogy holds true for the nib's subtlety and control, which are every bit the equal of a sharp pencil point. Even with a feather-light touch, the nib makes consistent, continuous marks.
Compass 1911 fountain pens feature a tapered, translucent body, so you can get a glimpse of the ink cartridges or converter inside. Two black cartridges are included with the pen; refill with Sailor cartridges or add a Sailor Ink Converter, sold separately, to use your favorite brand of bottled ink.
Equipped with a screw cap to keep ink from drying up and a strong metal pocket clip. The cap can be posted to the back of the pen while writing.
Made in Japan.
