Pilot 78G Fountain Pen
We give you, my Pilot Bamboo in Dark Blue Marine colour with Rose Gold trim. Fitted with a rhodium plated Size 10 18k gold moderate nib. We purchasd it from ebay for a beneficial price from a seller based in Hong-Kong.
The pen is typical top quality Pilot production. My you're from the Japan domestic market, in which they always include Rose Gold trim and you will get Black, Red, or Blue.
I have realized that there are lots of pencils on the market where alignment is frequently a concern, and several FPN'ers are frustrated by. Instances are the Waterman Carene in which the end angle does not align aided by the nib, in addition to Visconti Opera where the nib cannot line-up because of the facets, and the cap will not line-up using the barrel. Well. Pilot have actually fixed this dilemma making use of their precise production, the nib lines up completely with the position on barrel end, therefore the cap lines up completely also, each time.
The barrel material is a nice shiny blue synthetic, feels solid and contains a great body weight, however heavy. The blue color is fairly refined and tough to capture on camera, it usually arrives searching black. Nevertheless when held personally, it is possible to surely see it is a deep deep blue.
The pen is sensible whenever I compose unposted, although the stability is pulled straight back slightly using the cap posted (yet still not so bad). There is a significant help diameter at the threads, but this doesn't bother myself.
The nib is key feature with this pen, it is smooth and has the most perfect ink flow. Someone stated in another thread that Bock nibs manufactured overly damp to full cover up their particular flaws (sorry we forget which), and I now agree with this declaration totally (although I nonetheless love my Bock nibs). The Pilot nib writes effortlessly with a hint of surface, and it has a perfectly tuned circulation that isn't excessively damp.
The nib is a Pilot Size 10 nib, therefore it's about exactly the same size due to the fact standard Bexley 18k nib (maybe only a fraction smaller, but very very close). It's rhodium plated, with a matte/shiny comparison impact (sort of like a two-tone nib, but all rhodium with matte areas and shiny places).
So yeah, this might be outstanding pen, made by a business that gets it perfect each and every time. If perhaps this is made with rhodium trim (i am aware the black is, not blue or purple), this could be the right pen. No wait, we lie, there will be something might ensure it is better. maybe it's fitted with Pilot's Size 15 nib
