A short, informal review of a very solid knock-around pen. I like it a lot! This pen is easily obtained from eBay and comes in different iterations (with what seems to be the same nib and feed) such as the "234", "235", "237", etc. I like this one the best since it has that ink-view window and doesn't have the nib collar of its siblings. The ink window isn't really useful though in practice.

I got one of these a couple of days ago and mine is also inked with Pilot blue-black. How’s that for coincidence?

 
My impressions so far are similar to yours: the cap clutch is a bit stiff and the step down from barrel to section is a bit sharp. Other than that, it’s a perfectly good utility pen. I like it.
 
If you prefer a two-tone nib, check out the listings for NOS 1990s versions of this pen.

Thank you for sharing.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
