The pen has a nice nib. I bought the medium, so that's my experience. It's very smooth. The nib has a touch of springiness. The pen has good flow, and it starts up well after sitting idle. The ink capacity is favorable compared to some of my other pens. I use Pilot ink in it with good results, but I haven't used any other inks, so be advised. I've used the pen to draft a book, so the Custom 74 has proven itself as a daily writer. It's light and comfortable for me to hold. There's a piece of sliding black plastic that helps pool the ink toward the nib. I like that because it means I don't have to adjust the converter to get flow. I'm pretty happy with my choice.

I love this pen. It writes smoothly and easily and does not dry out when the cap is left off during a meeting.

Excellent pen! Its an ideal size for my hand and feels comfortable to use. The pen is currently filled with Pilot Iroshizuku tsuki-yo ink and the pen seems to glide across the paper of my Rhodia journal.

This Custom 74 is one of my favorite pens. I find Pilot nibs to always be smooth, even in the Fine that I prefer. This pen is light, in a good way. I could write with it all day long, it's very comfortable to hold and use. Finally, the orange I chose is a pleasure in being distinctive yet not garish.

This is by far the best pen I own or have every used. The Medium nib is smooth as silk and the gold acts as a shock absorber as you write. I can't recommend this pen enough!

A very fine looking pen, got mine in Blue. This is my first $100+ fountain pen and I whilst I have not Inked it up yet, like the balance in my hand when empty and the nib seems smooth when run dry across my Rhodia dot pad. As always fast service from Pen Chalet, just need to get local customs to speed up a little :)

Pilot Custom 74 Video



Video Script

This is the Pilot Custom 74 Fountain Pen. It comes in a black cardboard box with a clear transparent window to view the pen, and the Pilot logo printed in silver on the top of the box. Inside, of course, we have the Pilot Custom 74 Fountain Pen. This is the blue version of the fountain pen. To demonstrate our pen, it comes with a transparent cap and barrel, so you can see the inside of the pen.

On the pen, it also has a smoke-colored cap on the bottom and top of the pen with a small chrome band that transitions between that smoke cap and the rest of the barrel or the cap of the pen. And then on the cap, that chrome ring, it transitions into the clip of the pen with the Pilot logo printed, or just Pilot printed on the top of the clip with a small ball at the end of the clip to get it in and out of your pocket. Then at the bottom of the cap, there's a large chrome band with the Custom 74 Pilot Made in Japan printed on that band. The cap on the pen unscrews. It, once again, has that smoke-colored grip section and a small chrome band transitioned between the grip section and the rest of the barrel, and then it's a chrome-colored nib with the Pilot logo on there, and the size of the nib and other engravings on the nib. It's a nice looking nib. The cap on the pen can be posted if you would like to, or you can write with that or post it, whichever way you would like to use this pen.

Now this is a cartridge-converter style pen, so included with the pen is an additional ink cartridge and a converter. Converter's already attached to the nib section. It is a piston style, so you simply push the top portion of that converter down once you put it into the ink, and then release that, and that will draw ink into that chamber. Or you can pull this converter out and use the ink cartridge that's included or another ink cartridge if you'd like to use a different color. But this is a great looking fountain pen. I really like the look of this. Pilot makes some great nibs. They're a Japanese company. Get your Pilot Custom 74 Fountain Pen at www.PenChalet.com!

This is the Pilot Custom 74 fountain pen with the box in which it comes in. It's a nice leather box, it's a nice soft leather. This particular pen is the clear demonstrator color. It comes in other colors such as blue, orange, smoke and violet.

This particular pen is from our own private collection so you can see inside the pen that it is already filled with ink. This pen has chrome accents. On the ring is etched "Custom 74" and "made in Japan" and on the clip is etched Pilot.

The cap unscrews from the pen. This particular pen is a cartridge converter pen. To change the cartridge or converter you simply unscrew the nib section from the barrel. This converter is unique because it is a piston style converter. To fill the ink you press this piston in to pull the ink into the converter. You can also pull this converter out and replace it with a cartridge.

On the nib itself is etched Pilot and some other decorative things on it. It is a nice nib. It is actually a gold nib and it is great for the price. This is a great pen for the value. Get yours today at PenChalet.com
