Fountain Pen Japan
NIB & PERFORMANCE
This pen was obviously made for my hand. It has an ideal weight. I can comfortably and very easily write with it posted and/or unposted. In the interest of not leaving micro scratches on the pen body from posting, I wrote with it unposted. This pen is ridiculous. It's so comfortable and warm and delightful. Like I said, so little pressure is required for the pen to write that it just makes it that much more pleasing to write with. Must...get...one...
- Oh, just its ridiculous, simple, perfect beauty.
- Wicked, crisp, precise nib.
- Smooth writer.
- Allows for fast writing.
- Writes with very little pressure.
- Takes a bit of effort to secure one. But it's worth the effort ten times over.
The Pilot Custom Heritage 912 fountain pen is an elegant, beautiful pen. It's obviously simple and clean cut, but there is no doubt it is very appealing, and its performance is second to none. I don't have very many Pilot pens and I can't help but think this will be my next. The body of this pen is lovely but the nib is just too awesome to ignore. Must start looking for one.
Like Brad, I also do not want to send this back to Thomas...
