Such a cute little pen. This pen is really quite nice, small, rugged and an amazing writer. Hard to believe that it’s 42 years old(the H 1071 indicates that it was produced at the Hiratsuka plant in October of 1971). Since it is a Pocket Pen, it’s quite small but when posting it, it turns out to be a very nice size, perfect for everyday writing. The fine nib on this pen is surprisingly smooth, don’t get me wrong it’s not buttery smooth like a broad nib, but it doesn’t catch on the paper creating an annoying sensation of scratchy-ness that some other pens do. I’m usually not one for using fine nibbed pens, but this pen is a real beauty and I couldn’t pass up on such a great deal.

Fantastic pen, thank you Steve for this classic timeless classic :-)

    I am happy to see you like this Pilot. In my opinion, but you might
    already know this, the Pilot Myu is responsible for the current
    popularity of Japanese fountain pens.

    I would love to get in touch with you.

    Thanks fore keeping your blog active and updated.
