The Pilot Justus 95 features an innovative adjustable 14k gold nib that allows the user to make the writing point softer ("S", or soft/semi-flex) or more stiff ("H", or hard) simply by turning the tension adjuster at the top of the gripping section. The soft setting will allow for greater line-width variation, versus the hard which will write like a traditional stiff nib. The Justus 95 fountain pen is available in a black ribbed resin pattern with gold accents. The pen comes with an included Pilot CON-70 converter which holds an ample ink supply while uniquely combining the characteristics of a vacuum-filling and push-button converter. It also accepts Pilot/Namiki ink cartridges (one is included). Each Justus 95 pen is packaged in an elegant gift box.

There has been a slight change to the Con-70 converter design, so the one you receive may vary from what is pictured here.

Love this unique pen

I love this unique pen that has a dial that brings down or up a mechanism that makes the nib a harder writer and can also soften the nib. Great idea and nice daily writer! Rick B.Maine

Pilot Justus 95 (Purchase in 2022)

The Pilot Justus 95 is a fantastic instrument for all forms of paper. The ability to adjust the stiffness of the tines on the nib allow the writer to effectively avoid bleeding on lower quality American paper. The softer setting is perfect for getting that extra variation you would want for a signature or just to doodle while in a business meeting or lecture.

brilliant beautiful pen

This pen is fantastically smooth while still responsive enough to the texture of your paper the flex of the nib is really nice for subtle line weight and when the pen is set to hard the flex is reduced enough to be used as normal hard nib over all the quality is extremely good and the included con 70 is really nice to have included over all this is a really nice pen to wright with and really captures what i wanted in a pen really happy with my purchase 110% would recommend

Pilot Justus 95

When I ordered this pen I was concerned that maybe I should get with the medium nib. But the fine nib works great for me. If I want a slightly wetter experience I adjust the nib to its soft setting. But it is fun to play with this pen using various settings you can get. Do I like this pen Very much! And I find it a good value.

A pen worthy of Grail status

The Goulet Pen Co. did an amazing job with my order. They got everything together and shipped it with care. The pen itself is spectacular. The line variation from the hard to soft settings is subtle, but noticeable. The difference in softness is very evident. Note that this isn't a flex nib, but gives you some unique expression in your writing. Ink flow is absolutely perfect and the fine line is a true Japanese fine. The nib adjuster almost works as an overfeed and keeps the nib saturated with ink, so I have never experienced railroading. When you set the nib to soft, the flow is slightly more generous, but does not affect the line width too much when writing without pressure. Softness and line variation is comparable to the Platinum #3776 Century soft fine nib, albeit slightly more stiff. Also very similar to what you would get with the new Jowo omniflex nibs, though the Justus 95 nib gives an overall more pleasant writing experience compared to the Omniflex and the Platinum (smoother, better flow, etc.). I've found that this pen works well on low quality paper (lab notebooks with recycled paper), making it an absolute joy to use on high quality paper (Leuchtturm 1917 bullet journal and Clairefontaine paper). The pen is surprisingly light, however this makes it perfect for both posted and unposted writing sessions. I don't feel the weight of the pen takes away from the quality factor. The ribbed body finish is quite nice and gives it an understated elegance and catches the light nicely.Overall, the Justus 95 is quite pricey for what you get, however if you are buying this solely for the nib, it is definitely worth it. I would say that it is a workhorse pen that still allows you to add a little bit of flair to your writing!

FAQs about Fountain Pens

How do I fill a fountain pen with ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the pen's filling mechanism, which you can find in the Technical Specs section above. 

Here's a quick definition of the most common filling mechanisms:

  • Cartridge - A small, disposable, sealed plastic reservoir that holds fountain pen ink. These come pre-filled with ink, and typically you just push to insert them into place and you'll be ready to write! Check out our quick guide here.
  • Converter - A detachable and refillable ink reservoir that allows you to use bottled ink in a cartridge-accepting pen. Typically you will install the converter into the grip section, dip the nib/feed into the ink, and twist or pull the converter knob to draw ink into the converter. Here's a video for how to fill a cartridge/converter pen using a LAMY pen as an example.
  • Eyedropper - A pen that utilizes the entire barrel as a reservoir for ink. Ink is directly filled into the barrel, allowing for a high ink capacity. Here's a video on how to do it!
  • Piston - A type of filling system that uses a retracting plunger inside a sealed tube to draw ink into a pen. They are typically either twist or push-operated. These pens cannot accept cartridges or a converter, and only fill from bottled ink.
  • Vacuum - A push-style piston that uses pressure to fill the large pen body with ink. They seal the ink chamber when closed, making it ideal for flying without risk of leaking. Check out our video on how to use a vac filler here.

Check out more info on these filling mechanisms including a video on how to fill each one on our blog.

How do I clean a fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the filling mechanism, but it mostly comes down to flushing it out with water, and sometimes a little bit of Pen Flush if the ink is really stuck. 

It's a bit easier to show than to tell, so we've put together a few quick videos showing you the process:

How often do I need to clean my fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

We recommend a good cleaning every 2 weeks, and any time you change ink colors. 

Water will usually do the trick, but we recommend you use our Goulet Pen Flush if the ink has been left in the pen for a while and could have dried up, or when you’re switching ink colors.

My pen won’t write! What do I do? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

First things first... make sure you have ink in the pen! Be sure that the ink cartridge or converter is seated properly in the pen, and that you aren't out of ink.

We always recommend you give your pen a good cleaning first, using our Goulet Pen Flush, or a drop of dish soap in some water. New pens often have some machining oil residue left in the feed, so a good cleaning often does the trick first.

If that still doesn't work, try priming the feed. This consists of either dipping your pen nib and feed in ink, or forcing ink from the converter down into the feed. 

If it’s still not working after that, please reach out to us so we can help! 

What's your return policy? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

To initiate a return, please submit a request at the Return Portal. Our Customer Care team might reach out to you for more information.

Please note we are unable to accept a return of any Namiki or Sailor Bespoke fountain pen for any reason once it has been used with ink. Please thoroughly inspect and dry test the pen before use.
