Pilot Fountain Pen (re-mix)

So in the early days of this blog (snort) I did a review of this exact pen. It was new to the collection and I knew I liked it, but I wasn't sure how much and how much reaction I would get from it. You can read about it here but the emails and comments I got made me want to post it again.   It's a cartridge filled Pilot that I have not seen in stores again.
I said it was a "desk" pen because of not having a clip, but it travels with me and it's rare that I clip a pen on my shirt anyway. Sorry for you shirt clippers, I don't like to showcase the goods.) Oh, and yes there is some nib creep (ink on the nib) there. I don't try to fight it. I embrace nib creep as a normal part of my life. The nib says and it is very fine. I did pull it apart and clean it up once because the flow was a slow, but that did the trick and it now it writes like a dream again.

Again, I bought this in NYC for $8.95 and I probably use this pen every day. Right now it's topped of with Private Reserve Midnight Blues. I know I probably should have a black ink in here, but I am back in a blue stage lately. I will try to track more of these down, I hate liking this pen so much and only having one of them. Have a good weekend.

This is a great looking pen. Please keep us updated on your search for more of these. I would love to get my hands on one.

In fact, I have a family friend going to Japan in a few months and I hope to send her with some cash to make acquisitions for me. Any thoughts on what I should have her look for?
