Customer Reviews

Vanishing Point Collection
This is an outstanding pen. I'm enjoying writing with it. Even though I have several other fountain pens, which I made myself, I find myself using this on more often. The only regret I have is that I didn't but it with a fine nib rather than the medium nib. Fortunately Pen Chalet stocks these nibs, so I bought the fine nib and it is simply perfect for my handwriting style. Pen Chalet ships their product immediately, so i did not have to wait no more that a day or two. Great pen and great service.

I got the teal pen, and it's just stunning. It writes well too! I have one other Pilot pen with a gold nib that's a M point. I wanted to see how a F point wrote.

Conclusion: I like it!

I ordered the Hoteison and it is one of my favorite green/black inks. Writes well with great ink flow and just a hint of the dark green even in an EF nib.

Vanishing Point Collection
such a beautiful, functional pen. i got the stub nib, and even after like 6 months of use, it's never been dry, never had a hard start, never been scratchy. the nib is going to be a little softer than you're anticipating (especially for a stub nib, it's my only really soft stub), but you probably shouldn't flex it too much. black/silver is the best color combo, imo, ended up going with "carbonesque" and IT'S SO PRETTY. you can just barely feel the dots as a nice texture, but it's not bumpy, just kinda grippy.

I love the VP pen. The nib is very smooth and even though the converter is awful the pen os great and it is the only pen I always use cartridges for because it is easier and quicker.

CON-70 Piston
This is my first CON-70 converter. It's a little different for me! But it appears to be working as advertised and doing well.

I bought it to use in my Pilot Kakuno pen. It fits well (it's LARGE), and seems to work fine.

Custom 74
Buttery. Smooth. So buttery, it would go great with my toast. I love it!! I just got this Pilot in the mail, have written with it for a few days, and am jumping back onto this website to get another. Oh man. That medium nib moves like Michael Jackson on a waxed dance floor. Glides, man. Glides. I don’t normally go for a medium nib because I have small handwriting, so I am going to try the F next in this pen to see if it is a oily, buttery, slickity smooth as the M.
I am a small Asian woman, so posted it is a bit heavy and long in my hand. I seem to prefer to write with it unposted which usually I avoid because I lose things easily.

Oh my goodness. I bought this pen because I like small, portable pens. I honestly didn't realize when I got it that it had a gold nib. I also got a medium nib, though I usually prefer a F or even EF nib.

This pen is so very smooth in its writing! I'm sure it's a combination of the gold/med nib, but it's just effortless to write with. And it's sleek and elegant looking too.

I filled it with Sailor Yama-dori ink. #hearteyes So lovely, so much fun to write with!

VERY happy with this pen!

Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
... i purchase this ink in Yama-Budo color: it is really original color, closed to color of bits juice on light side (...for "healthy" part of society ), or a color of light Cabernet (for "others"). I tested it on different type of papers w "F" nib of TWSBI 580 and the best results were on laid and linen, it is not for regular bond 20# copy paper - in my opinion - with my pen/nib combination. Pilot's "Ya-Bu" is for "connoisseurs" or - in this particular color - for " true lovers" including lowers of fountain pens - or ...medical professionals for obvious reason (it is reddish, but not so scary like blood red ).

Excellent lady's pen, perfect as a gift for design professional
due to modern look, (especially burgundy my wife got - looks like lipstick)
Golden nib helps to accommodate different writing pressure

Prera Collection
I bought this in the orange demonstrator colour with a medium nib. The medium nib is an excellent writer. Well done Pilot. My pen came with a CON-40 converter, which, as you know, that converter is a little bit of a pain. It's alright though.
What I really like about the cap is the way it feels good in the hand even for its size. I have small hands—small enough to use this pen comfortably unposted. But I still post it for convenience. It's well-balanced and lightweight, good for taking notes.
The snap cap feels heavenly. Every good thing you've heard about that Prera cap is true. It's indescribable. The cap glides on smoothly and clicks into place so satisfyingly... It's so smooth. Yet it's firmly on there. No worries to be had about the cap coming off randomly in your pocket or pen roll.
Overall, I really like the aesthetics. Only a small issue with the inner cap liner being white and not clear. On a clear demonstrator too? Seriously? Oh well. It's a very minor complaint I have.
The pen is an excellent writer. Every ink I've put in it does great. Mine is a bit of a wet writer, which compensates for the dry ink I've put in it.
The US price for these is a bit high compared to Japanese Domestic Market prices. But I would say the Pilot Prera is still an excellent pen for this price. Highly recommend it. Just do your research and make sure it fits your hand. I know I have smaller-than-average hands, your mileage may vary.

Explorer
The Explorer is a perfectly cromulent pen. It does exactly what it's supposed to. But it's the first Pilot product I've bought that feels a little... cheap? That sounds harsh, I think. But it's what I thought when I started writing with it. The plastic of the pen doesn't seem quite as nice as some of the other relatively inexpensive Pilots I own. I own quite a few Kakunos, a Metro, and a Prera. This is the first Pilot where I thought it might could have been a bit better.

But the color was what I wanted, and honestly, it writes fine. So far, at least.
