  1. Hey everyone, I am planning to buy a Pilot MR in Greece. One seller told me that european MRs (Metropolitan) have only M nib and the international cartridge system. Another one told me that I can order MR in F nib as they are not available at this point in his store. I am seeking the truth! I'm afraid that I will buy a F MR but the cartridges will be the Pilot's propietary ones. What's the truth about european MRs and nib sizes?
  2. So I've been playing around with a few different inks in my Pilot Metropolitan with a F nib. I really love the nib for being able to write in tight spaces, but I am travelling to a monsoon region during monsoon season. This means I must have a waterproof ink, as I'll be writing pages and pages and I want to be sure I don't lose them in a downpour. So far I have loved the way the my Pilot behaves with Diamine and J. Herbin inks - nice fine line and amazing flow (I'd say the J.Herbin is the winner in that comparison) BUT when I use a waterproof ink, the line is suddenly double the thickness and the ink creeps all over the place. I've tried Noodler's Heart of Darkness and La Reine Mauve, as well as Rohrer and Klingner's Dokumentus in Hellblau Before I invest in another bottle or a riot of samples, I thought I'd see what everyone over here has to say on the matter. Have you had any success with specific inks that are waterproof while still keeping a fine line? I'd love to get rid of the nib creep too, but the line thickness is more important, as I'll be marking up texts and making notes on my own notes in the margins pretty regularly.
