I was never aware that FPs are also reviewed with the same zeal as DSLRs etc.
Revived interest in FPs when I casually checked for LAMY nibs for my LAMY Studio I purchased in May 2014.
Now to the topic. I searched 'far and wide' to identify my pen I purchased a decade (or more) ago in Abu Dhabi(and was using it when I got bored with BPs). I got the model number somewhere in the eBay. So cannot say it is the one. Could not find any reference in FPN.
The pics describe the pen with a short note below.
It is a pretty light pen and very comfortable to hold though is glossy black finish. The material of barrel and section is similar to the plastic of Hero the closest I can think of. The bottom of the barrel has a gold trim to end with. The cap seems aluminium gold coloured with PILOT written at the bottom and is push fit. No model number on the pen anywhere. Fit and finish is top class as for any Japanese product.
It came with a squeeze converter. Still working after years of use and lack of use!!
The nib seemed to be fitted permanent. Could not budge it when I wanted to take it off and clean up the pen. The pen seemed to have a sticker M on it indicating nib is medium. The writing is very smooth - earlier with Parker Blue and now with Parker Blue-black. The colour has faded a bit - is the ink to be blamed or not using for long with ink filled in?
I like this pen very much and now to search for some more Pilots - not available at any shop I know in Abu Dhabi.
Sorry for poor pics - not used to taking photos with cell phone. Taking them with my camera and then downloading, down sizing -
