Pilot Steel Italic Nibs Of Different Widths

Recommended Posts

Now that it is possible to buy Pilot Plumix pens — which are fitted with broad-edged nibs — with different (F, M and B) nib widths, I bought a new set (as opposed to the old three-pack all fitted with M nibs; I still have another one of those sitting in a drawer unopened, although Amazon Australia don't seem to sell them any more), with the expectation that I might use them as nib donors for three new Prera pens, which have remained unopened for over a year because in themselves they aren't such interesting pens.

This is how they write, compared to the standard round-tipped F and M nibs on the Pilot MR (or Prera, 78G, etc.):

I now have a second set of those pens on order, after seeing the results!

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Used to have everything from EF to BB in the old Plumix nibs. Still have one or two knocking around and planning to put them in a couple of Penbbs 494s.

the BB plumix nib is in a wing sung 698 that I have not had without ink in it for over two years. I did crisp it up into a bit more of a formal italic, but really not much.

 

The thing is just god-tier for lettering and headers in a bullet journal.

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)
