Pilot Custom 74 Fountain Pen - Blue, Fine is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pen I use other fountain pens for specific purposes and dedicated inks and leave them at home or at work. I take the Pilot 74 with me almost everywhere I go. It's classy looking and works flawlessly. Goulet Pen's Nib Nook and pen reviews were very useful in helping to make my purchase decision. What was even more unique was the email chain with Brian Goulet making pen and nib distinctions to assist me in my choice. How does he have time to do that? It was a big purchase for me, but just one individual sale for the Goulet Pen Company. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engineered I agree with Brian about this pen, it's very cool. And a very fine nib, for sure; get a Medium or Broad if you don't like a good bit of tooth on cheap paper. Makes a nice sound since my handwriting involves fast swoops. . The pen has a kind of bulletproof demeanor, feels tough, looks sleek and is very nicely machined. The Con-70 pump converter is a vast improvement over the twist-em type converters and works very well. Good tip someone had to pump slowly, it works great if you do. Gouletpens and Inknouveau are the best---where else do we get such a well-rounded site with education, news, unparalleled helpful aids , customer service par excellance and.........humor! Looking to buoy your spirits? Fire up Inknouveau to make you smile.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Scratchy 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bucket List Item - Check! After watching Brian's review and seeing his personal affection for the Custom 74 I decided this would be the first gold nib pen for me. It has not disappointed. the fit and finish on this pen are stellar and it writes really well. The fine nib writes like and extra-fine. It has good flow for such a fine writing nib. The filling mechanism works well. This is a daily writer for me. I am glad I went with the Custom 74.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm not sure what the fuss is all about, but... ...the nib is a bit scratchy, and the ink flow is not what it should be; so once I get the nib tuned I think it may be a good writer. It certainly feels like a solid pen, and it has a nice classic look. I don't like the push-button converter, it's hard to get a good fill; and once the ink goes in, it's hard to even see how much how much is in it. I'm probably gonna try to get a standard converter for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp, precise writing I love this pen. It lays down a precise and very fine line (slightly finer than my Lamy EF) and does it with style. The blue demonstrator body is professional, but still fun. Comfortable for long-haul writing or short notes, it is well designed, well built, and simply a joy to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a fan... I really tried to like this guy, I expected to love him. The scratchiness and skipping is beyond any fine pen I've had before including an IDENTICAL F Custom 74. He's beautiful to look at though.
