Pilot Custom 74 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

I really enjoyed my less expensive Pilot fountain pens, but I wanted a broader nib. This pen has a great look and feel. Exceptional Japanese styling and quality. Plus it uses the same cartridges as my cheaper Pilots. I am very pleased.

The Pilot 74 is perfect in my opinion! Outstanding right out of the box! I like the medium size nib in the Pilot brand. Nice sized pen that is well made with a very nice 14k nib that adds some softness to the writing experience. There are hundreds and hundreds of excellent fountain pen brands, I must say Pilot is my favorite brand! Moderately priced gold nib pen if your thinking??? I would encourage a yes go for it I don't think you would be disappointed with your purchase! Could not be happier with mine!

Fantastic medium nib! I really like the orange color of this pen. I have many fountain pens and this is really just about the smoothest nib I have ever used. The pen is a good size for me. Just following on the reputation this pen has built over the years so nothing new but I just wanted to add my two cents. Thanks Ron!

I got exactly what I was looking for in my EF nib Custom 74: that is, a pen with a ridiculously fine line, neither wet, nor dry, that never, ever skips. And thanks to Pen Chalet, I got it at a great price.

You can’t go wrong with this or any other Pilot. I have A Retractable and was going to get a Second one until I saw this beauty. You can’t find a Gold nib like this for twice the cost (although Platinum is pretty great, but I digress). P

Ordered the forest green in fine and have been pleasantly surprised. Was reluctant to order mainly based on there was nothing distinctive about the looks, but took a chance on the new color. The green is nice and gives the pen a slightly more professional look and it is very comfortable to write with. It also posts more securely than just about any other pen I own. Fine is fairly smooth but if I had to do it again I would have ordered a medium nib.

I love these pens. I have two of them. I bought this one after using the other for a blue ink - I prefer black ink. Beautiful thin line in the Extra Fine. Works without skipping. Holds a lot of ink, too. I draw with it, great pen.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to love it. I thought it would be perfectly adequate, and fill a void. Perhaps a pen to rotate out at a later date once I found a truly spectacular orange pen.

However, once it arrived and I'd inked it — with Diamine Pansy — I was pleasantly surprised. And with each consecutive use, I like it better. I have it with a Fine nib, and it glides across paper in the most delightful way. It approaches TWSBI 580 nibs in wetness.

I even found myself reluctant to clean it out at the end of the week. I wanted to keep it inked, to keep using it, which almost never happens. I'm usually happy enough to use whatever pens I have for the next week that I don't mind putting away my pens from the previous week. It's a testament to how much I enjoy using the Custom 74.

If you like feedbacky nibs, the Custom 74 is not for you. But if you like buttery smooth nibs, I highly recommend it. And this is coming from someone who prioritizes pen appearance over function. While the Custom 74 isn't the most beautiful pen in the world, its function makes it divine. I'm definitely happy I bought it. I wouldn't even rule out the possibility of another in the future, maybe with an Extra Fine nib.
