Comparing Sailor 14c M nibs with Pilot's E95s Medium....


Recommended Posts

I would much appreciate feedback from someone who owns a Pilot E95s with a Medium nib & who also owns a Sailor with the smaller 14c H-M nib. 

It would help me make a decision on my next (perhaps final) fountain pen.  A burgundy Pilot E95s sporting an M nib is available at my favourite Toronto store.  I was about to make a special order there, for a black/gold Pro-Gear Slim with a 14c Medium nib (which would be similar to a European F grade), but then,  the E95s caught my eye. 

I prefer small pens such as the 1911S & the Pro-Gear Slim/Sapporo (& I always carry an SS Kaweco Lilliput with a reduced, stubbed 14c B nib),...so a E95s may be an ideal choice.       But,  would a Pilot M be similar to other Japanese nibs,that are said to be somewhat smaller than their European equivalents?


Most of the comments about the E95s pens seemed to be about models with narrow nib grades such as F or EF, not an M.

My Pro-Gear Slim Spec Ed. Fire came with a wonderful B nib, which I kept as my only "factory" nib.  If the Pilot (E95s) M nib would work out for me, I'd also want to keep it "unmodified".


Thanks in advance for any info.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
