MR Metropolitan
Great starter pen, comes with a converter and cartridge. Very smooth nib and consistent pen. It is very different from something like a Lamy which provides more feedback. The barrel is metal, and pen has a nice weight, balance and grip. Overall, will make an excellent daily writer, or gift set.

Capless Decimo
My second Pilot retractable fountain pen. The Decimo fits the hand just a bit better than the slightly larger cousin. Nicely convenient for the shirt pocket and a simple pen for casual use. Nice feel in the hand, filling is easy and quick, convertor system is interchangeable, nib does a great job. Always seems to get a stare in meetings when I pull this out. In other words, with this pen you can help spread FPV to others. And that is truly our mission is it not? ;) Be an ambassador and use a Decimo!

Capless Decimo
I prefer the Decimo over the standard VP because of its smaller size. The F nib writes smoother than I expected and now I'm tempted to try the Decimo in an EF. I like the springiness of this nib. It lets you know you're writing with a fountain pen.

This is a very elegant looking pen. I bought the ivory/burgundy color combo, which is very striking. I like the way the F nib writes and am tempted to try the EF in the black version.

Vanishing Point Collection
I bought a Black Carbonesque VP (F) because I wanted to try a gold nib pen for a change, and it was an affordable option; and the retractable nib mechanism fascinated me enough (no caps to bother with!) that I was willing to risk of the clip being uncomfortable. Well, guess what? It's not uncomfortable! The way I hold my pen, my thumb barely touches one edge of the clip; but even if one is the sort to position one's finger and thumb together, the top of the clip is quite flat and shouldn't get in the way too much. And it writes beautifully - so smooth you can barely feel the nib. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

I should perhaps mention that the pen is somewhat chubbier and heavier than I'd expected from the stock photo, but not so much that it detracts from the writing experience.

Metallic Vanishing Point
This is my second vanishing point. My first one was a fine, while this one is a medium. The fine would always give me a little too much feedback for the weight of the pen and slow my personal handwriting style. However, this medium is much better. I wish they had an FM nib available in the U.S. market, which would likely be the best for me, but I am much happier with the M. I would definitely recommend a vanishing point to anyone who wants to move up to a higher value of pen. They are very practical and great writers. I do wish it was possible to better gauge the ink you have left when using a converter, as the con-40 and con-50 converters are buried inside the nib assembly to point that you cannot see how much ink is there. If you use a cartridge, it’s much easier.

Explorer
Just received my Explorer (medium nib; blue) and I’m quite impressed. I’ve only tested it with a black cartridge, but it wrote smooth, straight out of the box. I like the design better than the Metropolitan. It obviously doesn’t write as smoothly as a Vanishing Point medium, but I’m impressed. The only issue for some people is that the pen is very light. Going from the typical 17 g of a Lamy Safari to the 11 or 12 g of this pen may be too light for some. However, it’s definitely a good writing experience for the price.

Metallic Vanishing Point
Fantastic pen. It’s my first pen over $50, and the difference is immediately obvious. The good nib is soft and springy, and the writing experience is glass-smooth on most papers, with some pleasant feedback. The medium is wet and thick - more so than I would have expected, given the nib sizes in my Metros, but I like it. The click mechanism and trap door are great - both a great sound and great protection against the nib drying out. Quite simply, it’s my favorite pen I own.

My first nib was defective, and Pen Chalet customer support took amazing care of me. Let me swap out the nib unit, no questions-asked. They are fantastic!

I was never going to own a black fountain pen. This one writes so beautifully I made an exception. It writes with a little bounce and flex to give your handwriting something special.

Custom 74
I really enjoy writing with this pen. It is smooth and well tuned, but of course pilot typically does Ann excellent job with their nibs. It has a large ink capacity that is easier than others to clean! I have the medium nib which because this is a gold nib there is a bit of flex and so the line is a lot wider than most of pilots medium steel nibs. So be weary of that.

Thanks to Pen Chalet's awesome prices, I've moved up into the big leagues of fountain pens: my first gold nib. Chose the Desert Orange but the actual colour reminds me more of harvest gold appliances. :-)

At first I didn't see a reason for this style pen but, after walking around the mall with a purchase in my hand and wanting to write down a note, i realized there is a role to be played with this type of fountain pen. The vanishing point fills that role nicely. It turns officer workers heads when you use it giving an opportunity to show fountain pens are still relevant and provide personality in writing. And it is convenient for those times when you just need a quick signature on a receipt.

Custom Urushi
This is a high end pen with a high end price. No doubt about it. As such, certainly not for everyone, as fine-writing pens can be had for a much lower cost. But this is a GREAT pen. The urushi feels lovely in the hand; the pen is girthy but not heavy; the nib is bouncy and beautiful. If you can afford it and want a classy, business-worthy pen and are not a Montblanc fan, this is highly recommended.

Handy work-horse. Most everything about it is fantastic. Only nit-pick, is that ink sweats inside of the pen and can be a bit messy to clean. Not enough to keep me from using however.

Custom 823 Collection
This pen is by far the best writing experience I have had. Everyone raved about this pen and I resisted buying because I like a more flashy pen. When the smoke gray came out I thought now is the time. I am so happy with my purchase. I got a medium nib which is a little broader than a western fine. The pen glides across the page and the amount of ink it holds makes it perfect for taking notes at a conference.
