Quick Review - Wality 71JT

Wality 71JT is a gorgeous pen with a solid build, the pen is a bit top heavy but the balance improves once the pen is inked. The only major flaw that I see, is the nib; Don't get me wrong, it's not a particularly unpleasant nib, the nib is rather smooth with little (audible) feedback HOWEVER the nib is extremely rigid and "resists" movement, I would have perhaps liked this nib on a small Camlin pen BUT the 71JT is no small pen, the girthy section and a (relatively) heavy body, together make this nib a major flaw, this is one of the few nibs that make my terrible handwriting look even more horrendous because of the extra effort I need to consciously put while writing; before I denounce the Wality nibs altogether, I need to ink my second 71JT. This might just be a bad nib !!

If you're buying this pen online, particularly from Asapens, I would recommend contacting Mr. Subramaniam Lakshminarayanan for a nib upgrade. I repeat, the nib is not necessarily bad; some might even like it in it's current state, (IMHO) it's just not suited for a large, heavy pen such as the 71JT.

Hope this was helpful

Nice review Ashish..regarding the nib, medium point nibs from Wality are very smooth..or you can replace it with Kanwrite No.8 nibs..they are perfect replacement for Wality..

I'd like to buy more indian ebonite but I like small pens.

Other than the ones made for FPR, India only makes ball bats. :(

Me too, I have stopped buying larger pens; although these pens, especially the nicer handmade pens feel great while writing quotes and stuff; I think these pens are impractical for longer writing sessions, I've bought a bunch of inexpensive pocket pens that I'll be reviewing soon !!

Oh yes, your really terrible handwriting. That's it in the picture?....

 

Not all that terrible. I would be happy if I could consistently manage to write so nicely!

 

A very pretty pen, too. Thanks for the review.

Thank you for the compliment !! :D

I only wish my writing was as neat as yours, Aashish.

I have got a Wality 71 on order, but it has got the acrylic barrel with the ink window.

I have looked at the tips of the Wality nibs and they are round, like a pea wheras

The nearest Jinhao or Bock equivalents are much more elongated, more surface area and smoother in use. I only have one Kanwrite nib on a Ranga & it has the same sort of pea tip.

It is said that the Wality nibs make you more careful with your writing. Goodness knows it is something I really ought to practice at.
