  1. Hello people of FPN! It’s been over a year since I’ve last posted here, I’ve been busy with my first year and a half of college. In the last month or so, though, I’ve started lurking around reading the forums again, and I’ve been wanting to write another review. I just needed to find a pen that was the right balance of inexpensive and interesting, and luckily I found just the thing. As I was browsing the shelves of my college’s bookstore, procrastinating studying for my final exams, the blister pack these pens came in caught my eye. Zebra fountain pens. “An easier fountain pen” the box pr
  2. This is really a nice pen! Im impressed! I got this pen as a freebie on my Montegrappa Blazer order from Goldspot. Ive been interested in trying one of these Pilots for a while now but kept forgetting to throw one in the basket on other orders. Now I finally got to write with one and its very nice! It wrote right out of the bag with a nice medium line. Not scratchy at all but a nice quality feedback to the nib. I even like the blue ink in the pen. It looks like it has a cap liner too so I imagine it wont dry out super fast. The most amazing part, reverse writing is just as good as

    Regrinding My Varsity Nib To A Fine!

    Hello and greetings to all of you! I was quite happy with my Pilot Varsity/V-Pen. But the only problem for me was with the nib being a very fat Japanese medium (even fatter than a JoWo medium). It was also very wet with its original ink contributing to fatness. Now 15 year old me was curious about grinding my Parker Urban nib to one size down to probably a fine or at least remove its baby's bottom. But the fear of ruining it forbade me to. Then it dawned upon me. I took my Varsity and sat down for an hour or so and reground that medium to almost a nice fine. How I did it? Here you go: 1)Too
  4. I just ran out of ink in my Pilot Varsity. I recalled that the "surprise me" ink sample from my most-recent Goulet Pens order is Diamine Shimmertastic Blue Lightning, and was getting ready to fill the Varsity with it. I then remembered that the Varsity uses a wick in the feed, and I was wondering if that would make it impossible for the shimmer particles in the Blue Lightning to make it to the nib. Has anybody used one of the shimmering inks (Diamine or the J. Herbin 1670 line) in a Pilot Varsity? What was your experience?
  5. I just send a new to FPN pen user some black ink samples and a pilot varsity in black. I told him how to do the refill, and drew this little instruction set. These instructions work great for your Montblanc fineliner (I've done it), or rollerball (done it too). I can't take credit for the bright idea, to quote Microsoft, I "embraced and enhanced" this little time saver. http://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/2014-Inklings/slides/2014-Ink_270b.jpg

  7. Hello All, I forgot my Lamy 2000 F at home today and at work we only have ball point pens in the cupboard. So after the usual grumbling I remembered the backup but only used once every 3months Pilot varsity that I had filled with Noodlers Black. It's a wonderfully performing pen. The nib is great and the handling isn't bad at all. It looks the all of $3 it costs, but writes and handles way above that price point. I wonder what other pens are unsung heroes that are at lower price points. I think that for me the lower price point would be <$35 and the normal, need to think for a month

    The Newbie.

    Hey guys! Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a 19 year old Pharamacology student (pre-med) and I actually just recently took an interest in fountain pens (about a week ago). I then went out and purchased a pack of Pilot Varsities from my local OfficeMax to see whether FP's are for me. I loved the way the FP's wrote, and now I can't even fathom how nice it would be to use a better FP for my daily writing. My professor even complimented my pen while we were taking a quiz last week. I'm currently awaiting my shipment of FP's and Ink to arrive. I ordered a Lamy Safari (F), a Pilot Metropolit
