  I've bought several of..., May 12, 2014
I've bought several of these Pilot Plumix pens in order to transfer their nibs into Pilot Preras. I prefer to write with a medium italic nib and the combination of the Prera and this nib is a joy to write with. For some reason, I have kept this black Plumix as is. I put in a CON-50 converter into the pen and filled it with Iroshizuku Take-Sumi black and the pen and ink married into a comfortable writing instrument. It always starts, writes smoothly and never skips. Sometimes the nibs on the Plumix do need a little tuning, but this one was perfect out of the box.

Surprising, the Plumix is not a bad little pen to write with. It is light-weight, has a large ink window, and I like the smoky transparency of its squid-like body. It does not have a clip, so you'll want to use this as a desk pen only, however the cap does prevent the pen from rolling on your tabletop.

If you are looking for a starter pen to experience what an italic nib is all about, this is a good first choice.
