    Pilot Myu nib and date code

    I just acquired a Pilot Myu 701 that's dated 1171( November 1971). Above the date code is usually where the nib size is printed, but on this one, there is none. Every other Myu I own, which are newer than 1971 has the F marking above the date code. Those pens are from 1973-1976. Comparing the nib to a Pilot Custom Black Stripe from 1972, the line that the Myu makes looks like a F, but again, it's not marked on the pen. Does anyone have any insight as to why this is?

    Wishful Thinking Seller...?

    Don't know if anyone else saw this, but at first I thought that it's crazy that A Silver/White Stripe Myu showed up a few months ago and then this one... and then I clicked and saw... https://www.ebay.com/itm/PILOT-Myu-WHITE-STRIPE-Fine-Print-FOUNTAIN-PEN-Used-Rare-Japan/183004040721?hash=item2a9be40e11:g:OCEAAOSwuShaUahI
  3. Well, I never thought I'd see the day... when another mysterious silver (white) stripe MYU would appear for sale. Adding to the value is that there's a black stripe MYU (500-BS) included with it. It's on Yahoo Japan, ending on 9/28 (originally it was today, but the seller extended the auction). Immediately two bidders jumped on it. One of them has a scrambled name code I recognize (l*2*u), who appears and often snaps up many of the coveted vintage Pilot pens, especially the early uncommon capless models. They're leading the charge on this legendary auction... with the price now above 220,

    Loose Clip Pilot Myu 701 Help

    Hi All- I have a Pilot MYU 701 and the clip is loose. Is there any way that I can tighten this myself? Thanks in advance- octatonic
  5. Hi All- I have recently fallen in love with a Pilot MYU 701. Before this, I was a modern pen guy and then got interested (of of the blue) in a Parker 51 and love the demi for its size and balance. Now I also love my MYU 701! I have a student who is Japanese and is going back for our college Christmas break. I would like to find a new Pilot M 90 with a fine nib, and am wondering two things...1. would the prices be less in Japan than they currently are on EvilBay? *Also there are currently no NOS F only M nibs...on that site) 2. Any suggestions of where I might have her look? Thanks in adv
  6. After getting a Pilot MYU on ebay without a converter or cartridge I ordered 2 new con-20 for this fountain pen. After receiving I put one in place and filled it with Akkerman royal blue. I had the feeling that the converter was not fitting properly because it was a very wobbly affair but the short barrel keeps it in place. The pen with medium nib glides over the paper as a dream and after uncapping it after a night it still looks clean and writes perfect. Only the same evening after writing just a few notes the ink was gone. I think that that is very quick or the converter was not filled righ
