Thank you for the excellent and detailed review. I will want to own a MUSIC nib someday.

 

Cheers, Ben

Music nib is amazing..

You'r reviews are very pleasant to read and view. I also love your unique and attractive handwriting.

 

This is a pen that I have almost bought about 10 times. Seeing the music nib in action is a treat. Thank you!

Very comprehensive and attractively done review. Nice penmanship also.

 

Re the plastic & 78g vs 74; on my 74's the plastic is a tad thicker and polished to a much higher degree than in my 78g's. The plastic seems the closer too or same as that of 742/743/91/falcon-elabo's.

so, is this basically a 78G-quality body with a 14K nib?

It's basically the very highly polished thicker version of material used in 78 g with metal tenon inside and gold nib...

 

Please note I was just mentioning about material... not the trims... and details...

detailing as evident from review is far more than 78 G...

Dear TSherbs,

You said, "so, is this basically a 78G-quality body with a 14K nib?"

 

My observations are:

1. no

2. feel is different, 78 is smoother in feel, 74 feels slightly , hmmmm, word maybe is stickier to fingers? Softer?

3. 78 has gold rings of an applied plastic coated to look gold. 74 has metal, perhaps actual gold plate of significance to wear well?

4. Shapes are different.

5. if you hold each pen in your hand you will notice the difference in the feel.

6. both pens are -to my hand- very ergonomically designed, very comfortable to hold.

Again, these are just my impressions, you may feel differently.

Be Happy, work at it. Namaste

Dear V. Mehandiratta,

Well done review, very impressive. Yes, your skills and hand match up to that nib very nicely. It is difficult to explain how you feel when you use a pen that precise.

I treated myself to the dark green one but with a F nib. As expected, my writing with a Pilot F nib is quite different than your nib.

They are pretty pens, I think in an understated but elegant way.

 

Good luck with yours.

I believe only Music nib can do justice to this Ink....

Wow. That is an exceptional hand written review and what a fantastic nib! I particularly love your demo of the Montblanc Golden Yellow.

 

However I find the pen just a little boring in its looks. What a pity we couldn't get Pilot to enter a joint venture with one of the Indian pen makers and get it in rose ripple ebonite or a superbly swirly acrylic :-)

Too many pens, too little time!

I strongly agree with "worthier than its cost" part. No doubt about Pilot's stable quality control ability.

oh how I wish I could get these spare nib units...

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
