Walitys or Airmail are one of the most sought after Indian fountain pen manufacturers. Both brands are manufactured by AIRMAIL PEN COMPANY based out of Mumbai, India. And they have a good lineup of fountain pen and most of them are Eyedroppers and few of them are Piston fillers. My previous review of the two other Wality Pens I have reviewed are as follows:

Wality 52 PD

Wality 69 A

The pen that I am reviewing or we will be discussing about is one of the sleeker version of the Wality/Airmail pens and is named as WALITY 70AM or AIRMAIL 70AM. (A = Acrylic and M = Medium).

DESIGN & BUILT: 5/5

Made out of premium acrylic in brownish orange marbled and swirled finish, this is one of the best designed pen Wality pen. And it comes only in one color and that is orange brown swirls with pearlescent effect and in actual it feels really premium. The cap is made of metal in silver color and has guilloche design pattern in matte finish.

The cap bottom or the lip has an extension which is made of the same acrylic material of which the pen is made of. Actually it seems the metal cap is bonded to the acrylic cap through some process. The cap top is in shiny chrome finish which is in dome shape. and even the clip is in shiny chrome finish.

The pen clip is sturdy and stiff and will fit even shirt pockets and not slide.

 

img_20150505_0924122.jpg?w=768

 

The section of the pen is small and when i try to hold the pen in my hands my fingers touches the threads which actually are smooth and not that sharp and they actually provide the grip to otherwise slippery hands.

 

img_20150504_1837562.jpg?w=768

 

The pen easily opens in 1 and 1/2 turns which actually is not seen in Indian handmade ebonite pens. The pen actually tapers from lower half of the barrel towards the section gradually. Its slender well-built pen.

The built quality of pen is far above acceptable, the only glitch remains is the Nib and the feed placement and alignment which we will be discussing later in “Nib and Ink Filling Mechanism” section later. As you can see in the image below the thickness of the acrylic in the barrel, its evident the quality is okay.

Below are the few images which shows the comparison with few other pens to get the idea for size of pen.

The pen is well built and well designed just one or two quality finishes you might encounter which are not noticeable to human naked eye.

Same experience for me. The same nib on 69T was fine. I replaced the nib of 71JT with Sheaffer school pen steel nib

Have looked at this pen since your  review last year.  Finally took a gamble and purchased it tonite.  Your review, photos and handwriting helped to finally seal the deal!   I will be using a 1.0 stub for mine with the appropriate feed.
