My First Review Of A Fp - Pilot Fp Am 82G



Recommended Posts

I was never aware that FPs are also reviewed with the same zeal as DSLRs etc.

 

Revived interest in FPs when I casually checked for LAMY nibs for my LAMY Studio I purchased in May 2014.

 

Now to the topic. I searched 'far and wide' to identify my pen I purchased a decade (or more) ago in Abu Dhabi(and was using it when I got bored with BPs). I got the model number somewhere in the eBay. So cannot say it is the one. Could not find any reference in FPN.

 

The pics describe the pen with a short note below.

 

It is a pretty light pen and very comfortable to hold though is glossy black finish. The material of barrel and section is similar to the plastic of Hero the closest I can think of. The bottom of the barrel has a gold trim to end with. The cap seems aluminium gold coloured with PILOT written at the bottom and is push fit. No model number on the pen anywhere. Fit and finish is top class as for any Japanese product.

 

It came with a squeeze converter. Still working after years of use and lack of use!!

 

The nib seemed to be fitted permanent. Could not budge it when I wanted to take it off and clean up the pen. The pen seemed to have a sticker M on it indicating nib is medium. The writing is very smooth - earlier with Parker Blue and now with Parker Blue-black. The colour has faded a bit - is the ink to be blamed or not using for long with ink filled in?

I like this pen very much and now to search for some more Pilots - not available at any shop I know in Abu Dhabi.

 

Sorry for poor pics - not used to taking photos with cell phone. Taking them with my camera and then downloading, down sizing - :huh:

Thank you for reviewing this pen. This used to be called the Pilot superior and was very commonly available in India at a cheaper price point than the Pilot NSF pen, but a Brazilian seller uses the designation for this that you have also used. It used to be available in Black, Green, Blue and Red.

 

The nib cannot be removed from the front. You have to unscrew the nipple assembly from the rear of the section and then push the nib assembly from the front and it will drop out from the back side. The plastic is very thin on this pen so don't attempt this without a valid reason.

Thanks for the heads-up Hari. I would not break this pen trying to remove the nib. May be I saw that Brazilian seller's eBay listing from where I got the model number.

May I just ask about the shops in abu dhabi? I reside hear and pen shops are as rare as hospitals in a remote area. I just have been able to find WHSmith in Al Wahda mall just by chance. Do you know any other shops? I am wspecially looking for japanese pens with gold nibs. Thanks. Great review.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
