  1. Hi, I am looking to buy a pilot custom 74 in a fine nib(soft is preferred). My only criteria is that it writes smooth and isn't too weared out. If you have a custom 74 you'd like to sell or trade, hit me up and we can talk about the pricing!

  3. Hi All! Here comes a new "ruthless review". My ruthless reviews have a few peculiar features: Concise;Very strict. If a pen costs hundred of euros, no faults are allowed. A good pen gets a 60/100, a great pen an 80/100, an almost perfect one a 90/100. Only a divine pen can have above 90. Add a few peculiar criteria: "Nib appearance", "Usability in shirt pockets", and "Out-of-the-boxness", meaning to what extent a nib was perfect right after leaving the seller. Also, don't care about the box.NOTE: I've introduced a change in this review. Previously I used to rank each of the ten factors on a 0-
  4. Hi, I am planning on buying the pilot custom 74 and I am confused as to what nib I should get. I'm tied between the Fine and the Soft fine nibs. I like line variation on my pens, but I don't want something like the conventional "flex" pen and I want the nib to be fairly smooth. I will mostly use it for sketching and writing notes. Which nib should I go for?
  5. A week ago I was stuck on choosing the right pen to go for. I want to try the Pilot Soft nib but too bad only available on those in black. I had few black pens already....uum As soft nib is a must, so 743 or 912 or 74? Turn up I go for the 74, as the price of 743 and 912 is triple and double to the 74 and the size of the 74 is similar. (I'm not talking about the nib size, yes, i love bigger nibs also for sure, but the #5 nib is totally fine for me as in the CH92.) The price in Rakuten is wonderful, also the international shipping fee is waived in the campaign. So, I got two, one black (SFM) a

    Pilot Custom 74 Being Very Dry

    Hi, I received my Pilot Custom 74 (Fine) today. I found that it is very dry without applying pressure, in other words the pen doesn't write on it's own weight. In order to write with it, I need to apply more pressure than I usually do (in comparison with Metropolitan & Sailor 1911, I generally write without applying much pressure on the paper). Since the ink flows well when the two tines are apart under pressure, I suppose the feed works well. I wonder if it is my bad luck or all Pilot #5 fine nibs are like that? Thank you in advance.
  7. While pursuing the internet, I stumbled across other writing instruments in the Custom 74 line. Apparently Pilot makes ballpoints and mechanical pencils in the same 74 style. I tried to do some research and absolutely nothing pops up about the ballpoint or pencil. I am looking to purchase a 74 FP sometime soon, and it would be neat to have a matching pencil. Does anyone have experience with the Custom 74 pencil?
  8. PILOT CUSTOM 74 - MUSIC NIB Pilot Custom 74 – Music Nib This happens to be my latest addition or you may call addiction to Pilot Pens. After buying and using PILOT CAPLESS I realised that I need more Pilot Pens and lot of fellow fountain pen users and friends recommended me to buy Custom 74 and here I must thank Dhruv for connecting me with Bunkidou Shop. Dealing with Bunkidou was an amazing experience and his service was excellent. I actually bought two PILOT pens from him, CUSTOM 74 and CUSTOM HERITAGE 92. And the EMS service was so amazing that the pens reached to India from Japan
  9. I have a Pilot Custom 74 with a CON-70 converter. Getting the converter filled is no problem, but ink flow is. The problem does not seem to be air bubbles. Rather, the black rubber piece that falls down to create the seal when filling the converter falls down while I am writing and thereby cuts off the ink supply. Is there a way of preventing this? Many thanks.
  10. I know there have been many similar topics like this one, but I had to ask myself. I'm planning on buying myself my first gold nib as a Christmas gift to myself. I'm looking at the following pens: Pilot Custom 74 (M) Pilot Custom Heritage 91 (M) Pilot Custom Heritage 92 (M) Platinum 3776 Century (M) As I understand it, Custom 74, CH91 and CH92 all have the same feed and nib. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Are the medium #5 nibs the same width as Metropolitan medium? Is the 3776 medium nib broader or finer than the Pilot medium? Those of you who have tried both the 3776 and any of th
  11. Hi all, Having recently begun to use a Pilot Custom Heritage 91 as one of my daily writers, I started to wonder how to go about completely disassembling the pen for cleaning. I have found several disassembly videos for the Custom 74, such as the one by SBREBrown (here), but no comparable videos for the Custom Heritage 91. Since the differences between the Custom 74 and Custom Heritage 91 seem mainly to be cosmetic (flat top and differently-shaped clip, but same nib, feed, and similar-looking section), I was wondering if the Custom Heritage 91 would disassemble in the exact same way that th

    Skipping Pilot Custom 74

    I bought a Custom 74 with a medium nib about a month ago. I thought it was just a temporary issue, but it's not getting better. When I draw a line downwards the nib feels smooth and the line is wet and nice. The same with lines from left to right. However lines from down to up and right to left are very faint and dry and the nib feels scratchy. The pen in this Youtube review show the same issue. https://youtu.be/f_Egx_bAwAs?t=15m41s It there an easy way to fix this issue by myself, or do I have to contact the seller in Japan to sort it out?
  14. After acquiring a lot of gift cards for my birthday, I decided I would like to finally get a gold nib pen. All I can afford is an eBay/Amazon seller of the Pilot Custom 74, but I am dedicated to this pen after many reviews., so I would not like to change that. This seems to be the best pen for my hand size, school and other things I may use it for, like generic writing. One thing I cannot seem to find much of are pictures or suggestions of nib comparisons. I would definitely like a nib with a bit of line variation (and yes I know flex and soft are not the same thing). I know the soft nibs a
  15. Hi, I have some questions about the smoothness and fineness of nibs between Pilot Vanishing Point and Pilot Custom Heritage 92/Custom 74. I have Pilot Decimo with a fine nib and I like the smoothness and fineness of this nib, but it is little heavy for long writing. While I was searching for a smooth, lightweight, and fine fountain pen for long writing, someone has recommended me Pilot Custom Heritage 92. I see it has pretty good reputation in this forum. Thus, I would like to know more about the nibs of this pen. As I said, I like the fineness and smoothness of my Decimo fine nib. How i
  16. I am trying to decide between getting a pilot custom 74 with a medium nib and a platinum 3776 century with a medium nib. To me, their designs are similar but I am not sure how their nibs compare and what the big differences between the two are. If anybody is able to help I would greatly appreciate it.

    Custom 74 Nib Feedback

    Just bought a new Custom 74. The softer nib is taking some getting used to, it is not bad though. What I am wondering is: Does yours have any feedback on the nib? I have read several reviews that talk about the nib being smooth, but mine seems a little scratchy. Not digging into the paper scratchy just not as buttery smooth as I thought with this pen. Feels kinda like I am writing with a pencil at times. Thoughts?

    Pilot Custom 74 Nib Issues

    So I recently bought a Pilot Custom 74 from an online retailer, and I love the pen but the nib is a huge disappointment. When I first inked up the pen it was incredibly scratchy, and there were some ink flow problems. However, since using it the scratchiness has evened out a bit, but the flow still remains problematic--sometimes it dries out completely and won't write a single line. I've contacted the seller, and they've said that I can mail the pen back to them and they can "re-tune" the nib for me, but I'm not sure I should. 1. I'll have to pay for return shipping to them, and 2. they we

    Pendleton Regrind On A Soft Nib?

    Hello! I recently found a Pilot Custom 74 for sale for a nice price, and it's equipped with a Soft Fine nib. For anyone who has ever had their pens reground by Mr. Pendleton, do you know if it is possible to get a BLS grind from that Soft Fine nib? And if you have such a nib, does it write just as springy and "flexy" (term loosely used) as it originally did, along with its new stub properties?
  20. Why does an orange or blue clear custom 74 cost nearly twice as much as a plain clear one?
