  1. From the album: Nib comparisons

    OK, this isn't exactly a fair or methodical comparison of these Pilot pens and nibs, but I just got myself a Pilot 14K gold #10 FA nib again — this time on a used Custom 743, on which a replacement ebonite feed from Flexible Nib Factory is already fitted — and I really wanted to see if this highly sought after nib, which I hated the first time around, actually has anything special to offer now that I have the benefit of two more years' “study” of fountain pens and practice in handling them to appreciate what I may have overlooked back then.

  2. I am on a RAMPAGE (yes, I am shouting) of buying Pilot 912s. I bought the PO, which is a dream in the hand. I already have oh-so-many Pilots which, for various reasons, cover all but 6 of the 15 (!) choices. I am ABSOLUTELY buying an MU, a SU, and a FA, leaving the SFM, the SM, and the C. So: 1] I'd be grateful to know about any personal experiences regarding the difference between the SFM and the SM, ideally on pens larger than the 74/91 size (which is a very different writing experience, at least for me.) Yes, I have seen the Pilot chart, and the samples chart at Cronicas Estilograficas, but impressions from people who've actually used pens with both nibs would be an enormous help. 2] What am I missing about the C? Part of it is, I have a BB on my 845, which makes a fat, wet, but supremely elegant line. (I also have a C on a Platinum President, but that's a different experience.) I know the C is wider than the BB, and if less elegant, well, I love a brash pen, but it appears more like a Sharpie than a fountain pen. As I've said, I've plenty of Pilots which cover everything else, plus plenty more by other manufacturers, so please don't go to the unnecessary trouble of suggesting different alternatives. I'd really just like to know what you've found when you've written with these. And I hope I don't have to add that I'm aware it's subjective, I won't feel led astray if I end up buying something and not agreeing, and blah blah blah. Thanks to all!
