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 have to rate this pen as a "perfect." Pilot make such great pens, and the Custom 74 is no exception. I purchased the violet, and filled it with J. Herbin Violet, and it's a great match. The fine gold nib delivers the line width I like best (Japanese fine, not too wet), and it's a smooth ride with very little feedback (at least in a Leuchtturm 1917 journal). I don't seat the cap when I write, so it's a good weight in my hand — not heavy, easy to control, and the length comfortably fits my slightly larger than average woman's hand. The ink doesn't seem to dry out when capped. I liked my Custom 74 medium, but this fine is everything I could ask for in a fountain pen.

Beautiful purple body, great converter, but the broad nib is still not suiting me after a few months of use. It doesn't seem to write evenly or consistently and I've had to try a few gentle things but I'm not a big meister! After some gentle pressure on downstrokes and some figure eights on brown paper it seems a little better but has not become a favorite writer. In its defense it does write very well on regular paper, but seems to do less well in very smooth paper (Tomoe River paper for example).

First, the price was excellent. The pen comes with a CON-70 converter that holds plenty of ink. I have the medium nib and it glides on paper, no hard starts. The style is great and it is a wonderful first gold nib pen.

I love Pilot pens, and this one did not disappoint. The nib is so very smooth - one of my very smoothest-writing nibs. I chose the violet color and it is a lovely dusty violet. This is my first Pilot pen with this style of converter and I like it very much. Overall, one of my favorite pens.

This is my second Custom 74 with just a different nib size and colour. I love this pen over all the other favourites like the 92 and 823. Has a wonderful gold nib and is really value for money. The blue is gorgeous and I am really happy with the smooth writing and the Con 70 converter. I have a lot of pens and this is one of the best of them all.

I love this pen. Writes smoothly, flawlessly, and looks great right out of the box. Pilot has yet to disappoint me, no matter the price range. The included CON-70 is an interesting converter, and I was able to get a nice, full fill with it using the Pineider Pen Filler inkwell.

I ordered the Blue Custom 74 with Fine nib. I love the size and weight of the pen, unfortunately the Japanese's nib is smaller from a Standard Fine nib that I use too. I spoke with the Pen Chalet Customer service team member, and was able to get an exchange for a larger nib. Great service, fast processing.

A nice shout out to Jen from Customer Service for a wonderful service and Pen Chalet's excellent experience.
