I have reviewed a Heritage 912 before, with a #10 PO nib. My impressions of its appearance has not changed; it is a simple, gorgeous pen. The size is comfortable for most, I think. The black resin body is shiny, complemented by rhodium-plated trim. The ends are flat and blunt. The finial is smooth, black resin. The clip is attached externally and is nice and simple. There are no markings on it. The center band is a raised, rounded ring with a thinner band right above it. The larger band is marked with CUSTOM 912, PILOT, Made in Japan, along with some stars. The back end has a thin ring near the back.
NIB & PERFORMANCE
The music nib is very interesting, of course. The nib has two slits and three tines. There are a few scrolls along the sides, along with PILOT, 14K 585, 10, and
Sailor's and Platinum's. It is a little soft and does yield a little while writing.
The resin body of this pen is comfortable and fairly lightweight, as such, I find it very comfortable to use. The section is not outstandingly comfortable but it does the job without issue. In other words, I'm not blown away by the section, but I don't have any complaints either. The threads at the back of the section are quite smooth.
I very much enjoy this pen. I've been interested in the Heritage 912 ever since I reviewed the PO nib, but there are quite a few nibs to choose from so now I want them ALL. The pen model is very nice, it's attractive, and the range of nib options is great. The music nib is a really enjoyable, very fun stub that offers some expression and variation. It's a great package overall - highly recommended!
