Pilot 912 Fa Nib Transformed



Recommended Posts

GoofyGame

I support negative overseas evaluations.  I did all the writing in Japanese and English, to slow writing, no pressure, like soft nibs.  As a result, this nib skipped every scene.  I've bought this nib three times in the past and all have problems.  There is likely a problem with the nib and feed combination. I think the problem is not baby bottom. As soon as I changed to the FNF feed, all the issues were fixed.  

 

In addition, Pilot companies describe this nib as Ultraflex, but it's really just a soft nib. Thay need to advertise it to be used in the same way as a F nib, but they don't.

Where?

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.

This is their formal answer.  If in doubt, please contact the official page.  There is evidence in my email, but I can't display it on here.

I switched my 912 FA to an FNF feed and the pen is a lot more reliable.  The hard starting has not completely gone although virtually so in comparison to previously.  The flow is tad too generous for my taste though... the lesser evil, I'm thinking.

You can easily get an answer by contacting Pilot.  And if something goes wrong after posting a screenshot of what I have inquired about, I may be sued for defamation in Japan.  It doesn't matter if it's true or not, it's an  Information ethics issue.  I don't think I need to take that risk.  For the same reason, I do not post screenshots of evidence of correspondence with companies on the topic of lacquer.

 

I hope you will understand.Thank you.

      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.

      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
