While Pilot does not exactly offer the specialty nib-frenzy that you can get from Sailor (check out some of my Sailor reviews right here), they certainly also do have a very wide and interesting nib range with quite a few goodies in there.
Besides the EF to B standard nib-sizes, there is stuff like the PO (posting), WA (waverly), MS (music), FA (Falcon – not to be confused with the Falcon pen), SU (stub), or C (coarse). The PO and the WA are two nibs that I would be super-keen on trying out at some point. Unfortunately most of these nibs are rather hard to get in Europe (if you don’t import from overseas).
On the positive side, there are two Pilot pens that are readily available in Europe, and that also resonate very much with the many flex-friends in the fountain pen-community. Namely the Pilot Falcon (reviewed here) and the Pilot Justus 95.
Both are semi-flex scribes, and while the former has a nib-as-is, the latter does have a very interesting adjustable nib, where you can decide whether you would like to have more or less bounce/flex. Let’s dive into the rest of it in the video-review below.
The video is, as always, preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
