Sailor 1911 Medium Maroon/Gold, 14K H-F, inked with J.Herbin Vert Empire

Maroon is the traditional jersey colour of sporting teams in Queensland, Australia so I was very keen to buy this 1911 Medium model back during my grand Sailor obsession of 2011 (five 1911 Mediums and four Sapporos bought in a four month period). 

I could only get a pen with a H-F nib - Japanese fine - way too fine for my normal use. This nib is so fine that I don't think I have ever ran out of ink during a rotation. 

I once considered J.Herbin Vert Empire (Empire Green) a contender to rival the fabled Montblanc Racing Green. It is a good ink but it doesn't get much of a chance to shine from this very fine nib.
