Customer Reviews

Pilot Capless Decimo
What a beauty. In looks and in function. The clip is indeed not in the way and in fact helps (as do Lamy Safaris) with the proper alignment of the pen to the paper. I got the extra fine nib. I writes for me very similar to a 0.3 mm Penstix a little wider than a 003 Micron....if that helps at all. This is my first good Pilot (gold nib). Have a Platinum 3776 which I also like, but having to unscrew the cap has me not using it as often. Am loving the click it. So easy for that quick note.

Pilot Kakuno
I absolutely love these. I have over 200 pens, but gotta have a couple of these. I much prefer over a Preppy. Great performance and a great starter pen. Nibs run smaller than typical and use proprietary cartridges. Make sure you have a converter or 2. To me the are more of a staple than “a Fun” pen, but still a must have.

Pilot Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
I use several of these inks for writing letters. When I write my daughters I like soft colors. Outstanding price to value for a truly premium ink.

Pilot Iroshizuku Sample(4ml)
Purchased several samples of this ink, and all of them are appealing (Grain of Rice, Bamboo Forest, and Rigor of Winter) These seem to be wetter inks, which I like, although they can spread depending on the grain and texture of your paper. Nice even colors with subtle shade. Pretty consistent behavior, very enjoyable to use.

Pilot IC-50(6pk) Cartridge
These are the cartridges I use when traveling for my Pilot Metro style pens. The ink is first quality, although since the size is not standard, the functionality is limited to the proprietary design. More colors would be nice. All of the colors are nice, although the purple is too lilac for me. All these inks perform very well, and for the price these are an excellent value.

Pilot MR Metropolitan
I have most of the pens in the Metro line, including those sold under the 'cocoon' name in Japan. I'd say they are ideal beginner fountain pens, but they are perfectly respectable intermediate pens as well. They are sturdy, easy to clean, perform very consistently, and if you have a smaller hand like I do, the slimmer profile is a big plus. Overall a great pen with unbeatable value; this is my go to for everyday and for travel.

Pilot Vanishing Point
I’ve had my VP for years with the fine nib that just didn’t work for me. Getting the stub was one of the best choices for my handwriting I’ve ever made. Pen Chalet has the absolute best price and the customer service to match. I transformed a mediocre writing experience to a pen I cannot put down!

Pilot Custom 823 Collection
This was a grail pen for me and I have not been disappointed with any aspect of the pen. It has been in continuous use for the past 9 months and I have not put it away since I received it. I ordered the amber in the fine nib which is relatively smooth, has good flow with some slight feedback which I enjoy. The vac filler is convenient to use and it holds a large volume of ink over 2 ml. I am now considering the smoke with a medium nib to add to my collection. Great pen and no regrets with my purchase.

Pilot is a pen giant with first rate products. Their pens are elegant, beautifully made, and functional works of art. They really are tastefully designed to perfection. Never a skip or hard start. I have three Custom 912’s and they never disappoint. My go to pens.

Pilot Kakuno
I bought this so I can use the Pilot Colored Inks. This pen works well with no scratching. I like that you can see the inks being used so I can keep track of not putting another color of the same into another pen. The barrel is a pinch to large for me, but the comfort is still there. This is why I rated the Style a 4.

Pilot Custom 823 Collection
This pen is awesome. I wish I would have bought this sooner. It writes like a dream. It is one of the smoothest writing pens I own - very smooth. And I've only tried it with the ink that came with it. This will definitely be in the daily rotation. I may be buying another one I like this so much.

Pilot Vanishing Point Collection
This is my first Pilot Vanishing Point pen. I got the Medium NIB. The vanishing point is very smooth writing pen. I was concerned about the clip being in the way of my grip - I'm a lefty -- however that was not a problem at all. The pen felt great in my hand and fast became my favorite pen. I use this pen every day at work. Was a little spendie but I'm glad I purchased the pen. Pen Chalet has great customer service and the pen was shipped very fast - 3 days.

Pilot Vanishing Point Collection
This pen is my second gold nib. I was not sure which nib size that going to work for me between the F nib and M nib. I researched it and found out that the Japanese nib is finer than the western nib. Since my Lamy 2000 is an F nib, I expected that the M nib in VF would be similar in thickness to Lamy 2000. So, I decided to go to the M nib. However, the VP's M nib is way broader than my other FPs' M nibs. It did not satisfy my expectation since I decided to purchase it as my EDC pen. But I see a lot of variation of sheen using this pen. Also, I was skeptical about the clip, but it does not bother me at all. I am thinking about getting the F nib in another color.
