Customer Reviews

Pilot Prera Collection
Great pen! Would highly recommend as a gift for an individual as the packaging down to the pen is beautiful with everything included except for the ink. And it writes like a dream.

Pilot Custom 845
Coming upon this pen on sale at such a great price at the Chalet (my favorite purveyor of fine pens, hands down) was an instance of what a friend of mine used to tell me often, "timing is everything in this world, Al." And so it was for the Pilot 845 fountain pen, which now sits atop my messy desk; for sure, there's no missing it as its gleaming Urushi can be seen from across the room. As anyone who is seriously interested in this pen is aware of, the reviews of it (video and otherwise) on the internet are, like nearly every fountain pen produced from about 1990 onwards, cancerous and multiplying as I write this. I feel the only meritorious contribution I can add to the tremendous body of knowledge about this pen is my own subjective experience, which is little more than worthless, but an extremely short chatataqua seems the least I can do for Ron and the crew at the Chalet who granted me such a generous discount and made what would have been an otherwise unobtainable pen within my grasp. I was lucky enough to get the coveted Vermillion finish with a medium nib. I had been thinking about this pen for a long while but I was hung up between this model, the Custom Urushi, and the Namiki Yukari Royale. There was so much out there on all three of the pens mentioned that it became a bit overwhelming. A long standing customer of the Chalet, I check what's new and, more importantly, what is not sold out about every weekend (uh-hum); nine times out of ten this pen would either be sold out or simply not available in the color and nib size that I wanted. I didn't put in a special order or request, but it happened a few weeks ago when I was browsing and noticed that at long last the Vermillion in medium was indeed available. The pen arrived swiftly and with no issues, was well packed. everything was in order. When I opened the rather restrained faux leather box, I will admit the pen did not have me doing backflips. Despite its orange/red color and large size, this is a restrained pen aesthetically. The ornamentation is minimal but what ornamentation is there is done correctly - no, perfectly. Under a 10x loupe it's obvious that someone spent a lot of time and put a great deal of care into the production of this pen. From the filled-in letters on the cap band to the threading on the cap and barrel, it all just feels precise and it's obvious when holding this pen that you have in your hands a writing instrument of the highest order. My Pilot hoard is now at eleven fountain pens, ranging from a ruby red Stargazer to my new 845. All the nibs on my pens have been as close to perfect as I could ask for and the #15 two-tone nib on the 845 is no exception. It lays down a wonderfully wet and silky smooth fine/medium line that has performed flawlessly out of the box. Did this drown my desire for a Yukari Royale? Most certainly not. I am, however, glad that I chose this pen over the slightly larger Custom Urushi. I think this pen can stand on its own merits against nearly anything on the market today and while its not a Namiki Yukari Royale, it's certainly a nice primer for one and will occupy an august space in my hoard until I find a way to obtain that pen. Until that happy day arrives, I will be enjoying my Custom 845, unposted, with whatever the Iroshizuku of the week happens to be. Aut Caesar, aut nihil

Lovely smooth nib, a real pleasure to use. It's a bit short without the cap, but still usable. I only use the pen with the cap posted because my hands are large.

Pilot Iroshizuku Sample(4ml)
I tried some Kon-peki to see what all the fuss was about. Beyond being just a beautiful bright blue, the ink itself was a pleasure to write with - I never, ever had to worry about my nib drying out, even in a fairly dry pen. I'll likely sample more of these.

Pilot Vanishing Point
I LOVE my Pilot Vanishing Point pen and was so disheartened when I realized I needed to replace the point tip. After searching on the Internet, I found the Pen Chalet who was offering the product I needed at a price that was even below Amazon! My order and delivery were quick and easy. Thank you so much to the Pen Chalet for great customer service!

Pilot Vanishing Point Collection
Lovely, very smooth nib. The click is very satisfying, but I'm careful not to click the mechanism unnecessarily, because ink comes out of the breather hole if the pen is clicked too aggressively or rapidly.

Pilot Custom 823 Collection
Absolutely the best nib of any pen I own. The fine nib is the standard I use for all Japanese nibs and nobody has come close. Huge ink capacity. Balance and feel are perfect. You may not think it's as beautiful as other pens but you will love writing with it.

I realize that this is supposed to be a pen for children and beginners, but I absolutely love this pen and would recommend it to anyone. It's super smooth and bendy for a steel nib, and the smiley face is adorable.

Pilot Custom 912
The FA nib works well, but not without it's ink flow/Railroading issue. If you are thinking of purchasing a FA nib from Pilot, just know, if you write... fast and FLEX at the same time, you may experience railroading on the paper. Slow writing, and it will keep up... mostly. Not a big issue unless you FLEX a lot and can't write slowly... . I really like the Pilot Custom F. pens, and think they are worth every penny. :-) There are ebonite feeds out there to overcome the slow ink flow issues for the FA nibs, but it might void your warranty if you replace it. That doesn't matter to me, I've ordered one today to replace the stock feed. Love the pen :=)

Pilot Vanishing Point Collection
This Vanishing Point is now my best pen. The overall quality, fit, finish, and the cool factor are everything I expected and read about before I bought it. The gold on red color scheme was the right choice, too. It's gorgeous. Amazing how long this product has been on the market. And of course - the nib and the writing experience are sublime! I love pens, and this is a truly enjoyable experience, just owning it, and most definitely writing with it.
