  1. From the album: Japanese pens

    The nib collar on (now) my Pilot Custom 742 is sitting flush again after screwing in back in. Not a problem.

  2. From the album: Japanese pens

    Surprise! I hadn't realised until now that pens in the Pilot Custom line have threaded collars screwed into their gripping sections.

    Pilot Fa Nib Vs. Pilot Falcon

    Anyone able to compare the CH 912 FA nib and the regular Pilot Falcon nib? I recently purchased the Falcon and now I'm having buyer's regret hearing that the FA nib on the Custom Heritage 912 and the Custom 742 are even better.
  5. I was thinking about getting a Pilot with a WA (Waverly) nib and was wondering if any of you have used it and compared it with the writing experience of a Sheaffer Triumph nib, which has that slight upturned nib as well. I think that is called a "Waverly" type of nib though I don't think Sheaffer called it as such. I've seen the excellent thread where there's a visual comparison of the Triumph nib with the Pilot WA nib but I was wondering about comparing the feel of writing of one versus the other. (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/223586-pilot-custom-742-waverly-nib/) I have a couple pens with Triumph nibs (Imperial II Deluxe and Sentinel Snorkel) and I love both of those nibs; was wondering if this should be next on the list?
  6. Both are listed with an FA nib, but the 743 is significantly more expensive from the same retailer (maybe $50-60 more). They look identical online, is there any actual difference in the pens?
