I purchased this pen after reading several good reviews. I was anxious to try it and loaded it up with the Iroshizuku Ku-jaku. I use kon-peki all the time and love it. I tried to like this pen but could not. I ordered the fine and it felt like ExEx Fine to me. The lovely Iroshizuku Ku-jaku didn't even help out here. Whether 'feedback' or 'scratchiness' doesn't matter, I just did not care for it. I contacted the good folks at Goulet and arranged an exchange for an Edison Nouveau Premier Cappuccino - Med. WOW! I will write of that pen in the Edison Section.

A beautiful smooth pen

The Pilot 74 was a great find. I enjoy the Violet shade of the pen and the fact that it's a demonstrator makes it fun to look at when I use it. The Fine nib is very smooth and works immediately every time I put the pen to paper. The 74 is a joy to use, and I'm having fun filling it with Diamine Imperial Purple ink for a Violet/Purple experience.
