Ahoy! Somethin’ excitin’ comin’ your way! Introducing the newest in Sailor's North American Exclusive line: The Sailor 1911 Pirate’s Life Fountain Pen. What does a Pirate’s Life mean to you? A life full of adventure? Or a life full of risks and rewards? One thing is for certain - pirates always have GOLD! Because what’s a Pirate’s Life without gold... and the perfect pen for a pirate to carry?
Sailor's 1911 Standard size Pirate's Life comes with an opaque mustard yellow-gold barrel, golden trim, and a 14kt gold nib (because every pirate should write with REAL gold). Each pen comes with a piece of treasure to get you started — a special golden coin collector’s pin which is only available with the purchase of a Pirate’s Life pen.
The cap screws to open/close and can push to post onto the back of the barrel when writing. The 1911S comes with a Sailor proprietary converter as well as two proprietary Sailor Black ink cartridges.
