Pilot IC-50(6pk) Cartridge
So glad I was able to find a cartridge for my pen my daughter bought me while she was in Japan.

Pilot Knight
I LOVE this pen. It feels so well balanced and writes beautifully. Everything about this pen says quality from the spring loaded pocket clip, to the satisfying "click" when the cap is put on. The cap posts nicely and doesn't slip off.

Pilot Falcon
One of the pens that first intrigued me into joining the fountain pen community but I waited a full year before purchasing and it has been another year since and I can easily say this is a must have. I don’t really flex it much but the ink lay down on this is like no other pen. The shading it produces even with a extra fine nib and no pressure is on another level. I regret not getting a few more before the price was hiked to be honest.

The nib is so smooth and has never once skipped no matter how much I’ve test flexed it or how long I left it unused. Every time it touches a paper, it just glides across it. Pilot really outdid themselves with this.

Pilot Capless Decimo
Decimos are my ride or die, my babies, my most loved and most used pens. I have tried the VP but no the Decimo is my true love. Over the last 2 years, I have tried most of the popular fountain pens from but this is hands down the best pen. I own all the current US colors so I’m just waiting for more color releases at this point.

I will say, I am a fan of the extra fine, fine mainly. The medium is too broad for a medium for me. The stub is also lovely.

Also I wish pilot would create better converters. It writes and works without a issue but filling pilot converters is a PAIN.

Pilot Kakuno
It's nice to be able to get a great Pilot nib at the fraction of the price, and another bonus with the Kakuno is that you can use the Pilot CON-70 converter with it, which is the highest ink capacity converter that Pilot provides. So you can't go wrong with a Pilot Kakuno as an everyday writer.

Pilot Custom 912
This is a delight of a pen and has rekindled my interest in flexible nibs. Honestly, I had gravitated towards stubs and cursive italics instead, having given up on finding any decent modern flexes that were NOT on dip pens. I had also tried a Pilot Falcon with a flexy nib and that was not a gratifying experience. But this? This was glorious.

Very happy with this. It writes great. Smooth and rich flow. The blue with gold trim very good looking. I thought I might have a problem writing with the
Clip but no issue at all. Great price on a
Gold nib.

Pilot Custom 912
Early years as a journalist, madly taking notes to capture conversations and scenes, totally ruined my handwriting. I recently undertook to improve my handwriting, and promised myself a fine pen if I stuck with it - nothing haughty, but a fine pen. This has been the reward - the Custom 912, with a "stub" nib that smoothly renders a really crisp, clear and flowing italic style. "Stub" nibs are not widely known and I encourage you to check that category, they provide elegant and clarity without being difficult or overwrought. Pen Chalet was the perfect connection, with great selection, and tracking down the model from the maker at a good price and arranging speedy shipment. Loving this pen. Thank you!

Pilot Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
If I had to choose a favorite ink brand, Pilot Iroshizuku might be among one of of the top five. I’m a sucker for their packaging and the bottle is stunning. Their inks tend to be a little thinner than some brands but I prefer that for some of my fountain pens. Pen Chalet ships their inks so well I’ve never received a broken bottle. They’re always packed with care. And they have an ink club that lets you earn points for free ink! Win, win!

Pilot Capless Decimo
I bought this as an experiment because I wanted a retractable pen and the Pilot capless pens (both Decimo and Vanishing Point) receive such good reviews. I have to admit that I didn’t like the appearance which is what kept me from ordering one for so long. I’m so glad I did! This is a highly versatile pen — easy to use, and featuring interchangeable nib units so that you can have any nib width you want from fine to stub (yes, I now have them all!). Between the Decimo (slimmer version) and the Vanishing Point, there are a wide range of colors and finishes to choose from, including the beautiful make-e/raden finishes on the Vanishing Point. I now have two VPs and one Decimo and have saving my pennies to order the raden version.

Pilot Kakuno
Best fountain pen in this price point. Writes smooth. This is the fountain pen I keep in my purse. I have also gifted one to my 7 year old niece who loves it.

Don't be fooled, it is not just for kids or beginners! I only wish it did not need proprietary cartridges, but you can get around this with a converter.

The smiley fave makes me smile.

The Pilot Custom 823 meets all of my expectations. I purchased the Amber with a fine nib. Initially had some feedback, but has gotten smoother over a short period of time. It has already reached the "must be replaced" status if it is every broken, lost or stolen!

Pilot MR Metropolitan
I wanted an inexpensive pen that I could carry in my handbag and not feel it was to "precious" if something happened to it. I read so many good reviews on the Pilot Metropolitan that I decided to try one. It writes consistently well with the different inks I have used so far and is very comfortable in my average sized hand. I especially like the simple elegance of the plain black color.

Pilot Iroshizuku Bottled Ink(50ml)
Ink is more on the wet side, moderate drying time, negligible seethrough on normal paper.The brown is more hinged on a dark sepia undertone. It is soothing to eye on general, though my personal preference is a bit more light and punchy shade of brown more like KWZ Capuccino or Robert Oster Caffe Crema.
