Customer Reviews

Pilot Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
Great performing ink. I got this for my Sailor Pro Gear Black Imperial pen which Sailor recommends using just their ink. The gray and black is a great ink/pen combo.

Pilot Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
I’m not a connoisseur of subtle ink colors. I love the “electric blue” color though. This ink, once it dries, has a bit of that feeling. I’m pleased to use it If you are a connoisseur I think you will be happy as well.

Pilot Custom 823 Collection
Lovely pen, classic style. Good weight and balance (unposted) in the hand. The only gripe I have is forgetting the Japanese pen widths are narrower than elsewhere. I could happily have used a broad.

Pilot Vanishing Point
I bought a second nib for my Pilot Decimo, which I bought with a medium nib. I love the medium, but it doesn't work well on some very low quality paper I need to use up. I use the Fine nib for writing on that, and the Medium for higher quality paper. Both do their jobs extremely well.

Pilot Capless Decimo
I love my Pilot Decimo. This is my first really nice fountain pen, and it's worth the investment. It fits my hand perfectly, is beautiful to look at, and is a joy to write with. I appreciate the help I got from Pen Chalet customer service when I had some questions about which pen to buy. I didn't want to get a pen that was too big for my hand, and Lainey helped me make the perfect choice. I highly recommend this pen and Pen Chalet.

Pilot E95S
This was purchased for my adult son as a birthday present. His nickname is "E" so I thought it would make a nice gift for him. He has never used a FP before and is really happy with it. He is writing letters with it, asking about ink, and he puts it back in the box after every use so it won't get damaged. He's now looking at the Kaweco AL Sports to use as a pocket pen. I have the maroon/ivory version of the E95S and the nibs on these pens are just superb as is Pilot's renowned craftsmanship.

I absolutely love this pen! I purchased mine with the Waverly nib being a left handed writer, and I really think it helps.
I find this pen to be my most comfortable pen to write with.

The look of this pen to me is very classy. I compare the style of this pen to a tuxedo.

Pilot Knight
I purchased this Pilot Knight Ballpoint as a retirement gift for a very dear friend. She's very picky about her pens. I had given her a fountain pen and a couple of rollerballs in the past, but none of them seemed to suit her. And so I decided to see if she might like this ballpoint. Well, she loves it. And I mean, LOVES it. She's told me so several times. She says she can write for hours at a time without her hand ever getting cramped or tired. She been using it for several months now, and she's already ordered refills for it. She tells me it's perfectly balanced for for her hand (she's very small-framed), and the weight is perfect. She also adores the color and the finish. Because she's so crazy about it, I went ahead and ordered a second one to have on hand in case she loses the original. Pen Chalet's discounted price is a terrific value that can't be beat, and of course, their customer service is consistently exemplary.

Pilot Custom 74
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.

Pilot Kakuno
These are such fun pens. I bought the EF demonstrator and the purple/white F. I also have the lime green/gray M. Now I have a complete set of smiley face nibs! The EF demonstrator is really cute, but a the nib is a little sharp - not so much scratchy as prone to digging into your cheap office paper if you don't pay attention. On the up side, it lays down a crisp fine line so I can cram tiny notes in tiny places. Yay! And who doesn't love a demonstrator? The purple/white F writes beautifully without digging into the paper and isn't too broad. The low price point and snap caps make these awesome pens for carrying around in my bag. When I first saw these pens, I was underwhelmed with the aesthetics, but they grew on me with use. Super comfortable, excellent performance and really affordable. Fantastic!

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.

Pilot E95S
I have quite a few pens, but added this in the burgundy. It has a very different look & I was tempted by the 14K nib at a great price. It writes beautifully; my medium seems more like a western medium which I like. It has just the right ink flow (Diamine Syrah). I thought it might be too light or feel insubstantial in some way, but it feels like a quality pen. I usually don't post pens but I do with this. It is a great pen and a joy to write with - I highly recommend it.

Pilot Custom 823 Collection
The Custom 823 is one of those legendary pens that people rave and rave about. After finally getting this one (Amber, with a fine nib) in hand, I can see why.

The vacuum-filling mechanism is fun, and this thing holds a huge amount of ink. (It's going to take me forever to write it dry with this fine nib.) I like that the ink chamber seals off - I've already done a bit of traveling with it, and I've had no problems whatsoever. It feels sturdy and substantial in the hand, with a good amount of heft but not too much. (Unposted, the balance for me is perfect; posted, it's a little back-heavy, and I can take it or leave it.) The brown and gold are very pleasant to my eye and make every session with them a little more enjoyable.

The real star of this show, though, is the big no. 15 gold nib. This thing writes perfectly, every single time, from the very first fill. I just never have to worry about it. I don't have to adjust my writing angle for a "sweet spot" or anything like that. It almost feels, well, custom-made for me. It's a Japanese fine, for sure, very thin, which means there's a bit of feedback, but that's to be expected - this is about as smooth as a nib this fine can be.

In terms of writing performance and aesthetic quality, the 823 is pretty darn close to perfect in my view. If you can swing it, I highly recommend it.
