  1. I was excited about this pen as soon as I read about it on the Pilot website. I was always curious about the original shor lived Justus model but the NOS prices were way beyond what i was prepared to pay. This year I believe is the 95th anniversary of Pilot and they apparently decided to reissue their Justus as the Justus 95 with some changes(snap vs thread cap, clip shape and nib sizes). Engeika statrted auctioning these pens in the last week and I was able to win one at a good price. The pens are available in two variants Straight line guilloche vs barley corn guilloche. I bought the straight lined one. also the pen is being offered in F/FM/M nibs, Ibought the M nib version since Pilots F is really fine and I want something a little fatter for everyday scribbles. Onto the pen... Packing/presentation: Justus 95 got a fancy packaging of its own, it is quite classy. It came wrapped and sealed in factory despatch condition: http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8488_zps7ba845b8.jpg http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8491_zps2932eacb.jpg http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8492_zpsb484f752.jpg Perhaps the packing date seal? http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8494_zpse93fcddb.jpg The complete model number indicating body pattern and nib width: http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8495_zps2787380c.jpg The wrapper removed: http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8498_zps3b93460c.jpg The outer cover slides off: http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8500_zps30a14059.jpg http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8502_zpsd70c6e4a.jpg to reveal the inner box whose lid is simply lifted off: http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8504_zps836d57fc.jpg http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8505_zps7e2c4684.jpg using the helpful notch the inner transparent cover can be lifted... http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8506_zpsc9280834.jpg and after moving the upper sponge layer out of the way, the pen is revealed: http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8507_zps3863a9f4.jpg The cap and pen are held seperately, perhaps to showcase the adjustable nib... http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8508_zps11981007.jpg http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8509_zps892c43d3.jpg Clip hang tag: http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8511_zps26b168f1.jpg The pen has been rescued from the packing and is out of the frame, There is one more level below the pen holding foam that holds the bilingual operating manual and complimentary cartridge. the Con-70 comes pre installed in the pen. I am a cartridge fan, so i popped a Namiki Blue cartridge into the pen for first inking. http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8512_zpscd730386.jpg http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj582/hari-317/PilotJustus95/IMG_8515_zps365a9fd1.jpg
  2. I've researched both. Read reviews. I like both. It's becoming a nightmare deciding between the two. Any significant design issues with either of them? I may not have to strike either of them off my list, but any good reason I should?

    Original Pilot Justus

    I have some questions regarding the original Justus, hopefully someone can shed some light: Start and end of production years or appearance in the Pilot Catalog Nib widths that were offered Thanks! Hari
  5. I picked up a Justus 95 last week. I was not expecting to like it as much as I do but it is one of the few Pilot offerings that I get along with. The section is long enough to be comfortable in my hand and I like that the transition from barrel to section is subtle. Weight and balance are good, even when posted. I find that Pilot's Fines tend to flow dry from the box, and exude a toothy feel on a counterclockwise stroke. This one was wet and smooth, whether it was set to H or S. A full flex pen this is not, but I like their expression of a soft nib. If you've been thinking of the Justus, I'd say it's worth a test drive. I also wouldn't be surprised if one ended up following you home.
