A very pretty pen, and a nice review. Brown is so often paired with gold, but I prefer it with the silver.

An admitted piston filler snob, I've come to appreciate the Con-70 push button converter that came with my CH 912, and echo your evaluation of it.

Is the nib a #10 or #5?

The lines of this pen are very similar to the 912, but I wonder if they're the same size: the 912 is nearly the same size as a Pelikan M800, which surprised and pleased me. Would you be able to do any comparison shots with other pens for size reference?

Thanks!

Ryan.

ETA: just saw your CH 91 review - how do they compare in size? Thx!

Thank you for your nice review. The pen is very beautiful. By the way, I have heard that the body is made of propionate resin.
Is it a kind of celluloid?

The Custom Legance (no 'r') is a great Pilot pen. I love mine. The material is propionate resin; it has a great feel and shimmer. The feed on mine is not as precise as I'd like, but it's good enough that I haven't sent it out for adjustment.

Hi Ryan
thanks for the compliments
The Custom Heritage 91 and the Legrance custom are identical in design except of cource the Legrance
has different material. They used the same nib type as well.
So the nib is identical, a good fine flexy nib.

The converter in the CH91 however is not the CON 70, but the general smaller version.

Both are well made pens for daily use, and i love piolt nibs because so far i found that they made very good italic cursives

Cheers
