Shined and Fixed: Sailor 1911 Sterling Silver

This weekend’s mini-project was to fix and polish my Sailor 1911 Sterling Silver pen. It hasn’t been used in about a year, ever since the crown on the top of the cap popped off. I didn’t lose it, and it was an easy fix, but I never got around to fixing it. That is until Saturday.

That is when I got out the polishing cloth and shined it up. Then it was a little superglue to attach the end-caps at each end of the pen.

As I writing test I filled it up with J. Herbin Rouge Hematite 1670 Anniversary ink. The 21kt medium nib writes as well as I remember. It’s a medium nib, but a thin medium so I like it for everyday writing.
