Customer Reviews

Custom 74
This is not a cheap pen, but it is more than worth the price you pay. The pen writes beautifully, laying down a delightfully wet line. The nib glides smoothly across the paper. The converter takes some getting used to, but it works well and holds a large amount of ink! I eagerly recommend this pen to anyone who's looking for a nice gold nib!

Custom 74
Great pen! Mine is orange with a fine (F) nib. The fit and finish is outstanding. I realize that aesthetics are a personal matter but in my opinion, the smoke and chrome accents really make this pen pop! I've written with it posted and unposted and it's a little top/back heavy when posted, but not to the point of interfering with my writing. I'm a huge fan of Japanese nibs, and this one doesn't disappoint! Very smooth writer. All in all, a very cool pen. Highly recommend!

Falcon Collection
Bought this pen specifically for drawing. Was worried that extra fine would be too scratchy. Perfect for sketching but a bit too fine for writing for me. Good line variation with little pressure. I have been using it every day for just under a week now and it’s already less scratchy. Can’t imagine getting these line variations with any other fountain or disposable pen.

Kakuno
I bought the clear Kaliningrad with an extra fine nib to test ink samples. I really like the thinness of the line. I inked it with Lamy Obsidian and like the dense black. The nib has a bit of feedback but not bad. For the price I really like this pen

I like this pen alot. The medium nib is very smooth with a pleasant feel. Light plastic pen that works great. The cap closes with a soft snug click. Nice size pen comfortable in hand. I will buy another with a medium nib. Great pen for the money!!

MR Metropolitan
This is my first fountain pen, purchased after I discovered the Pen Addict podcast. There is something very pleasing about writing with a quality pen. I fell in love early on with the Pilot Precise V7, so I was drawn to the Pilot brand. Writing (mostly journaling) with the Metropolitan feels more precise. The ink practically gushes out of the V7, in comparison.

100th Anniversary LE
I really like the “Hotei-Son” I purchased. The color is a green-black - not so unique a color but the saturation, flow and drying time are great as with all Iroshizuku inks.

Vanishing Point Collection
The Vanishing Point is one of my favorite pens so it seemed obvious to get it with a stub nib when I was beginning to experiment with those. I am glad I did. It is a great pen with a quality nib.

Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
Beautiful ink, but I really want to talk about the customer service. When it arrived, my first bottle had a cracked top and had leaked a good bit. I emailed customer service, they sent a new bottle no problem. It's my second interaction with them and both times they have been amazingly helpful. It's one of the reasons that I love ordering from Pen Chalet, and why they will continue to receive most of my fountain pen business. Thank you so much for all your help.

Custom 823 Collection
My favorite, favorite pen. The M nib is smooth and the overall writing experience is fantastic. Only could be tedious to clean if you are used to cartridge/converters. I don't mind. It's just more time with my favorite pen. :)

Custom 823 Collection
I'm in love with my Pilot Custom 823 with Fine nib. I'm a Pilot fan and that started last year when I started into my fountain pen rabbit hole. I went from Pilot Metropolitans, Capless/Vanishing Point, Elite 95s, Custom 74, Custom Heritage 912 and now the 823. I have other pen manufacturer experiences as I love my Leonardos, Montegrappa, and Franklin-Christoph pens to name a few. It's my 823 that stands out among the others. It's my fave, my EDC, the one pen that I carry in my Galen portfolio and journal with everyday. This pen is well balanced in my hand when posted. Consistent writer. Lovely fine lines when I write. Smooth writer. Feels great when I write with it page after page. Love the Vac Fill. Have no issues with cleaning my pen. This is also my travel pen. A work horse pen. Glad I made this purchase.

MR Metropolitan
I really enjoy writing with my Pilot Metropolitan stub nib. I like how my handwriting looks and I enjoy the feel of the pen in my hand. I bought my sister a Pilot Metropolitan medium nib and she is not a fountain pen user but she used hers for most of Inktober last year!

Vanishing Point Collection
I purchased a red and gold vanishing point with a broad nib. It is my first capless pen. I find myself using it so often because it writes smoothly on all my different fountain pen friendly papers. Any stationary or journals or sketchbook I happen to grab, this pen always performs great. I sketch with the pen, too and it’s possible to get light shading by barely touching the nib to paper, and also produces consistently nice outlines. It has never skipped on me. The small ink capacity is not really a problem for me since I don’t change Ink color very often and it’s so easy to fill. Practical, affordable, beautiful, a great value.

MR Metropolitan
I'm an industrial designer and don't typically use fountain pens for designing or note taking but after using this Pilot MR Metropolitan pen It changed my perception of fountain pens as a tool. WOW, what a great pen at a great price! I loved my experience with this pen so much that I've punched other pens with different nibs to experience all that fountain pens have to offer. This pen is a great introduction to quality fountain pens. As a result of my experience with this pen I've stepped up and have purchased a high end gold nib pen. Again, A great pen for the price.

Capless Decimo
This is my "Go-To Fountain Pen" and take it with me on most all of my travels. It is considerably lighter than the regular size Vanishing Point Fountain Pen but also, uses the exact same Nib Units. The Nibs are very smooth writing and a joy to write with. I even bought one for my wife, who is not a "fountain pen person", and she enjoys writing letters with it. I highly recommend the Decimo and am happy to see they are offering them in more color options and look forward to even more, as well as Special Editions.

Kakuno
This pen is so great! I had the medium and fine nibs and really wanted to try the extra fine. It was only available in the demonstrator body, and was the same price as the other colors(unlike some stores, which charge more for the clear and/or extra fine variety). My initial reaction was that it was very very fine, and somewhat scratchy. However, I quickly realized that it was probably because I was trying to write very large and very fast. I decreased the size of my writing, and immediately fell in love. YOU CAN WRITE SO TINY!! I did a comparison to my other nibs, and this one obviously came out on top. I gave it to my husband yo try, and he claimed it for himself. No worry, I gladly accept any excuse to buy more.. Overall, the kakuno is my favorite pen, and I love it so much I have no interest in buying anything fancier or more expensive. I use it for my studies, and I have no desire to show-off or catch anyones attention. I would appreciate more color options in the fine-nib, perhaps even some of the limited edition colors, if possible. Also, my experience with Pen Chalet has been superb. Thank you!

Custom 823 Collection
The best fountain pen on the planet. Writes so smooth. I prefer the Fine nib over the Medium nib (Own both). I do a lot of writing daily on nice Marumon notepads. This Pilot Cutom 823 (F) with Noodlers Heart of Darkness Black ink is simply an amazing experience. Thank You Pen Chalet for your awesome pricing, fast shipping and GREAT Customer .Service...(I used to be a huge Lamy 2000 (F) fan....No longer...Pilot has won me over. I have had to send my (2) Lamy 2000s out for nib tuning. (2) within 2 months...Come on Lamy get your Quality control..in line with your awesome brand name/history....
