Pilot Knight

This pen writes nicely, but I thought it was on the heavy side, which led me to give it up.

I don't use my Pilot Knight often. I used to think it was the weight. I weighed my pens on a postage scale. The Waterman Kultur is .6 ounce, Waterman Phileas .8 ounce, Rotring Core 1.0 ounce, and the Pilot Knight is 1.3 ounces. I think it also has something to do with the balance. If I loosen my grip, it tends to slide out of my hand. My other pens don't do that. It write so smoothly, but it is my most uncomfortable pen.

After reading some comments in this forum and Stylophiles review, I decided to pick one up at our local Office Depot. I bought the matte silver finish. The medium nib is definitely a fine when compared to most US and European nib sizes. As a matter of fact, I think it's right in between my VP's fine and medium nibs. Great weight and balance, as well as size. After investing many $$$ in my collection (a little over 130 pens), I'm finding it hard to believe that this one was only $40. It will undoubtedly end up accompanying me often! :D

Then you are going to be in for a real shock if you go over to isellpens and put down ten bucks for a Baoer 3013, Wality 69L, or a Hero 616.

 

sorry, couldn't resist, the current popular use of the word "invest" just triggers so many conflicting emotions.... :bonk:

YMMV
