I wanted to wait to list these on here until I got mine and confirmed everything was on the up and up.
I've never heard of the juliet. These are all coming out of Thailand. Maybe a regional model? for $25 plus $6 shipping (I bought a couple pencils too, dropping the shipping cost to $2 each) I took a gamble. was curious about the nib in particular, since I've seen steel nib models in green and blue, but no good info on the 14k one. It was stickered 14k, the nib was stamped 14k.
The seller's communication was superb. Confirmed from Pilot that the red models were in fact 14k nibbed, and took one of the pens apart and sent me a picture of the nib, feed, section, converter, cap and barrel all disassembled. I saw the nib didn't have the standard "wings" on the nib like the steel ones did, so presuming I could throw it in some #5 pens (or give them as gifts) I ordered 8 more.
The seller threw in the matching pencil for free, so now I have a set, and I can confirm that these things are a ludicrous steal. All of them are FM nibs, and they're like a smallish #5. They don't swap into everything, but did fit quite a few pens I tried. I currently have one in my traveler's company brass pocket pen. Huge, huge ugprade from the old steel F.
One caveat I have to point out is that I think due to their age, there is some residue in the feeds that prevented every one of the 9 I got from writing out of the box. I had to pull the nibs/feeds and scrub them in soapy water or dilute ammonia with a toothbrush for a few seconds, rinse, and then they all wrote perfectly. They come with the CON-W, similar to the cleaning converter on the parallel, and it's on there TIGHT, but is removable, and replaceable with a con40, 50, or standard pilot cartridges.
The cap is brass, barrel is brass, and section is a thick, tough, well made plastic, I think it's nylon, feels like it. The cap has a nice, satisfying click, and snaps to post quite deeply.
for $25-31, these things are an absolute ludicrous steal. And the seller is awesome. They said they have like 80 (around 70 since I took nine of 'em) Good for 14k swaps in smaller #5 pens, or just use as is. just remember to pull the feed and scrub it before use.
Same seller, etsy and ebay stores.
