  1. A week ago I was stuck on choosing the right pen to go for. I want to try the Pilot Soft nib but too bad only available on those in black. I had few black pens already....uum As soft nib is a must, so 743 or 912 or 74? Turn up I go for the 74, as the price of 743 and 912 is triple and double to the 74 and the size of the 74 is similar. (I'm not talking about the nib size, yes, i love bigger nibs also for sure, but the #5 nib is totally fine for me as in the CH92.) The price in Rakuten is wonderful, also the international shipping fee is waived in the campaign. So, I got two, one black (SFM) and one green (Broad). And I turn them into the dual tone custom-custom 74. Boring black problem - SOLVED.LOL, looks like a Pelikan. I totally in love with this arrangement.I received them today, and for that, I can't wait dashing to get a J Herbin's Lierre Sauvage (wild ivy - a nice green ink.) (My apologies for the misleading title.) A little review for 74 SFM.Finishing, as usual, no complaint can be made. The nib, I didn't ink the B nib yet, and for the SFM, I simply love it. A little bit on wet side, no skipping nor hard start problem. I love the degree of variation provided, and I'm really glad that I didn't go for the SM as the un-press line from SFM is wonderful to me, and so I may find the SM could be too wet. Oh one more thing, this 14K gold nib is really smooth, not better than but already really close to my 21k Pro Gear. I use con-70 converters for the the pens. The pump type is really interesting, as I check the video for the con-70 before, I know the pump action should be fast to get it loaded. And a kind reminder is that the nib may hit the bottom of the ink bottle if the actions are too vigorous. So personally I prefer simple piston converter, a comparative gentle way... Thanks for watching...
