Pilot Capless Nibs
Posted 08 November 2006 - 02:30
I hope to purchase a Pilot Vanishing Point very soon, and would like some advice regarding nib choice. I've learned from this forum that the Pilot nibs run quite narrow, with a Medium being equivalent to a European Fine. Now, I am currently using a Parker Sonnet fitted with a Medium nib, which a lot of people say runs broader than most other manufacturers' Medium nibs. I quite like the line that the Sonnet produces, and would like to achieve something similar with the Pilot. So, logic says that I should buy a VP fitted with a Broad nib. Does anyone here actually own examples of both of these pens (Sonnet - Medium / VP - Broad), and how do they compare?
Thanks in advance.

The Capless nibs that I find in the US are fairly broad unlike the ones in Japan.
Stolen: Aurora Optima Demonstrator Red ends Medium nib. Serial number 1216 and Aurora 98 Cartridge/Converter Black bark finish (Archivi Storici) with gold cap. Reward if found. Please contact me if you have seen these pens.

Added: I agree with the later posts about them being wet writers. Both the F and B are on the juicy side.
