Morning! This week’s pen is Sailor Young Profit 1911. Young Profit is one of Sailor’s medium range pens. It is just abouve the pens like Lecoule, High Ace and Clear Candy. I decided to get this pen while I was looking for a daily use music nib.
Size of the pen is quite decent. It has a body which can be considered as slender and it is a bit taller than Pilot 78G. Body is made of black quality plastic with gold accents. The cap is a “click” type, confident closing one. I liked it. The filling system is “Sailor cartridge only” but of course I prefer using it with a Sailor converter.
Sailor music nib is a bit different from other music nibs we know. Don’t worry a comparative post is coming soon 🙂 Normally there are two slits in other music nibs while Sailor has one slit as in regular fountain pen nibs.
Music nibs generally provides a character close to italic nibs. As you can see from the writing sample, it produces both thick and thin lines. And although it has been used for musical notation, I love using it for daily writing sessions.
It is a good pen performing right out of the box, with a wet character and great impact on my handwriting. I find it quite practical for daily use. It was around 60 something USD and I believe it has a good price/performance ratio.
