  1. This is a long-term review meaning that it is based on roughly 18 months experience with the particular pen. Pilot 78g Broad (stub): After enjoying playing with my 1.1mm Lamy Joy, I thought it would be nice to add some other italic pens to my collection. The Lamy 1.1mm nib is smooth and pleasant to write with, but lacks sharp line variation and is, perhaps, a touch too broad for extensive notetaking. Based on my experience with Japanese nibs running thinner than western, I gambled that the Pilot 78g might serve this purpose better. So I bought a green one from Speerbob (great eBay seller,
  2. Would a Pilot 78G BB or B be suitable for these hands? If not, could you recommend an alternative in the same price range? I know I've seen it chiefly recommended for Italic hands, but Pickering mentions a Rotring Art pen with a sharpened nib in his exemplar and those seem to be primarily used for Italic penmanship as well. Since the hands don't have massive variations in lineweight, I don't think I'll need it either, though it's possible they're subtle and I just don't yet have the eye to pick up on them. http://www.jp29.org/00cal03.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a

    Pilot 78G Lovers

    Hello Friends, After using Pilot 78gs as a EDC and owning all 4 colours and all nib types, I am keen to know what all of you here opine on it. Good bad fair or whatever just express it and drop in your personal 78g images if you can. I have been using them and liking them since quite some time. Here are 2 of mines in the pic...

    Pilot 78 G - Nib F And Nib M - Handwriting - Italian Video

    Interested in Pilot 78G nib M or nib F but you do not speak english well? If you can understand italian, by any chance, Watch my youtube video in italian, in my youtube fountain pens rewiews italian channel "Vecchia Guardia Stilografica".
  5. I recently got a Pilot Metropolitan for the first time - and I can see what so many people mean when they've said it is a bargain for the price. It's beautiful, a nice thickness, substantial feel... But for my small hands, a little too substantial - it feels too heavy for me, especially when posted, to be comfortable for long writing sessions. I fell in love with the nib, which is working fantastically, so I unscrewed the section and screwed it into my 78G (formerly having a B stub nib I just couldn't get on with). The 78G is light and comfortable to write with, but it does definitely feel li
  6. I recently received a Pilot 78g from Goodpens here on the forums. I was thinking about converting it to an ED because it is my favorite for all my long writing sessions (Essays and minor research on wearable technology). The squeeze converter doesn't hold enough ink and refilling so often is kind of a pain. I have seen older posts here on FPN and Badger and Blade about it and it seems all you need is a pen body with no holes,an o-ring and silicone grease. I have the first two but have looked at my local hardware stores and I can only find the silicone-based caulk which i know is advis

    Pilot 78G Question

    Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere. If it has, I won't be offended by a cursory link in that direction. My Pilot 78g has spent the last few months confined to a drawer after becoming scratchy and rubbish. I'd been using a Con 50 and had tried a variety of inks. Despite it being my cheapest pen by a good £10 I missed it dearly so I popped one of the proprietary black cartridges in last night and, lo and behold, it's smooth and beautiful again. I promptly ordered a pack of red Pilot cartridges and am looking forward to bringing it into my marking rotation*. So my question is thi
