Iroshizuku 50ml
Hey it's an empty bottle what can I say. As you know the Iroshizuku bottles are perhaps the very best quality glass of all the ink bottles.... Nice.

IC-100(12pk) Cartridge
The Pilot cartridges work better in the Vanishing Point than Pilot's converter does because the cartridges hold more ink.

Vanishing Point Collection
This is the perfect pen to carry in a shirt pocket and use throughout the work day. A fine nib works well on copy paper, and you don't have to keep up with a cap.

MR Metropolitan
This is my first experiment with stub nibs as I'm usually a fine nib guy. I'm glad this nib is a little narrower than a standard 1.1mm stub. I can still write legibly on college ruled paper and the pen is not too wet that I bleed through the cheap paper. I am blown away by how awesome this pen is! My handwriting is still small but it just looks better with that italic calligraphy flair in it. Going to use this pen a lot!

Custom 74
I ordered the Blue Custom 74 with Fine nib. I love the size and weight of the pen, unfortunately the Japanese's nib is smaller from a Standard Fine nib that I use too. I spoke with the Pen Chalet Customer service team member, and was able to get an exchange for a larger nib. Great service, fast processing.

A nice shout out to Jen from Customer Service for a wonderful service and Pen Chalet's excellent experience.

Vanishing Point
Great service and prices. Purchased the Vanishing Point matte black form Amazon. But it came with a broad nib. Nice nib but it throws down a lot of ink on certain paper. In my work environment there is a lot of inconsistency in paper quality. So I purchased the medium nib here. Nice change from marker type calligraphy to normal lines now. Great selections and great service.

Vanishing Point
I purchased this extra fine replacement nib primarily to provide options for my two VPs, which I ordered with fine nibs. I love the fine line, but I needed something finer to accommodate the crummy, porous paper my college has us use when we print off tests and quizzes. I like grading in different colors, and the VPs are perfect for that, but the ink bleeds through and feathers. The extra fine line helps with that issue.

Perfect original part! Love the black ionized look! Also, at your suggestion, I got the 1.0mm Stub tip, and it gives an amazing flowing quality to my writing. My wife said it looked more like "old English writing". Now I want this tip for all my pens! Thank you!

Explorer
Surprisingly light weight pen with a med grip section. Feels great and very easy to write with. As will all Pilot nibs I've ever had, writes flawlessly, even after sitting on my desk unused for a week. Snap cap is a positive "click". The finish looks like anodized aluminum, but it's just a light plastic. By looking inside the cap you'll notice the plastic used is actually white & the finish is sprayed on. After 2 months of repeated posting of the cap, no affects to the finish. Holding up great. Tough little pen. Great alternative to the all metal Pilot Metro. The "F" nib will write for ever & ever & ever.

MR Metropolitan
The Pilot Metropolitan is a great pen for the price. I have two, both with a fine nib and have really enjoyed them. It is also nice that they come with a converter. I do not like that the ink level cannot be seen with this converter, but it works well overall. A great value for a good workhorse fountain pen.

Love my original series, faceted, Pilot Vanishing Point Pen over the newer versions.
It simply feels better in my hand.
Purchased this nib for sketching purposes.
Very comfortable and leaves a very nice line.

Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
Well, my favorite ink used to be Noodler's Navajo Turquoise. I still like the brighter color of Navajo Turquoise, but I don't like the crazy long drying time. Pilot Iroshizuku ink, on the other hand, dries nice and fast. It works very well on the cheapest of paper, which Navajo Turquoise would bleed through and smudge. I bought Pilot Tsuki-yo (Moonlight), a darker and grayer looking blue that I still like and will enjoy using because of its superior behavior on paper.

Custom 823 Collection
Well for the hefty price I paid I'm glad that this pen has blown me away! What an experience! Such a fine nib, yet so smooth! And that ink capacity! It will become a cherished family heirloom I'm sure. Love writing with this pen! Surprisingly wet for a line so fine. Wow.

Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
This specific review is for Kiri-Same (Scotch Mist).

This is a great ink that can emulate the look of a soft graphite pencil, or hard graphite on cheaper absorbant paper. It behaves well with light feathering and moderate to slightly wet flow, very similar to other Iroshizuku inks but perhaps slightly drier.

Iroshizuku Sample(4ml)
Pilot's Iroshizuku inks are quickly becoming my go-to inks. I have black, blue-black, blue (Kon-Peki), horsetail (brown), and dark brown. I love them all! They all flow well in every pen I own, work well on every paper I've used (even the cheap stuff!), and the color selection is varied enough that I would like to try them all at some point. The 3-pack samplers come in 15ml bottles, so even after trying the 4ml samples, it's easy to purchase a larger bottle without going straight to the full 50ml bottle.

CON-40
Lower capacity, but reliable and these work much better in the Pilot Metro pens (compared to the bladder fill converters that come with the pens). Only takes a second to refill so not a big deal for me - even for long writing sessions - they still last for many pages of writing and even when used for work purposes in the office, I may have to refill maybe twice a week
