I got this last week. It had a hard time starting, so I changed the ink out. Still no luck. Got the flow better writing with the nib almost sideways. I was so frustrated I bent the tip slightly downward and widened the channel. I filed the tip a bit with a nail file and voila. It is finally working. It is still a bit scratchy, but that is to be expected with a tip this small. All in all, I am disappointed. The Platinum Preppy I got with my ink writes great with no modifications or tinkering. Maybe I just got a lemon.

The Pilot Penmanship offers an inexpensive, yet quality option for a Japanese EF nib - quite extra-fine by western standards!

The extra fine nib is really appealing and it actually is extra fine. My first fountain pen was a pilot metropolitan so it was a great change of seeing the thinness of this nib. I do experience some skipping, but I think its probably because I need to clean it again. I'm not really a fan of the screw on cap, but I've definitely gotten used to it. This pen is great for note taking. I think this pen is a great addition for any beginning fountain pen enthusiast.

This is a great extra fine point pen. I've converted it to an eyedropper and it seems to never run out of ink. I use this for a lot of detail notes in margins of books and articles when researching.

I love extra fine, and this is very fine. Because the lines are so fine, its great for writing on small notepad, or if you would like fine lines in general. This pen needs some use time before you can properly use it. In the beginning is will cut through paper and get some debris on the slit, which will force you to flex the nib to clean the debris out. Over time it will get smoother and no longer issue with cut paper getting in the slit, but it is still a very scratchy pen. Because it uses such a low amount of ink each refill last for a while. Oh and the price is great. I carry this and Plumix with me at all times.

I had to reorder this as I dropped my first one and bent the nib. I have a Lamy Safari with the extra fine nib (which in reality is not very fine, maybe equivalent to a 0.5mm pen), and this Pilot is closer to 0.28mm which is how I like my lines. The only change I would consider making to this is trading out the screw on cap for a slide on, otherwise this fantastic, especially considering the price.

This was to replace the one I bought in Japan - exact same model. I love this pen for its flow on ink and the size too. Not too long, fit in my pen bag. It creates beautiful lines while doing everyday writing. A must IMO for people who like daily everyday beautiful lines.

This is my first fountain pen so I can't really compare to any others. I wanted a pen that had a fine nib, that is good for writing and drawing. So this one was recommended to me. i have had this pen for two weeks now and haven't experienced any problems.

I. LOVE. THIS. PEN. It writes shockingly well and smoothly for such an inexpensive fountain pen. I have the Pilot Blue Black in this pen right now, and it's lovely! Very smooth, even colour with no blotting or feathering, even on a simple yellow legal pad from Office Depot. The ergo grip is very comfortable, as well. I just ordered this pen in the demonstrator version, too!

LOVE my Pilot Penmanship. I do small drawings/watercolors so the fine line is perfect. OK, so the long length, no clip, and inability to attach the cap when using is a bit of a pain, I love using the pen.
