The post man dropped off my Jet Pens order today. I tried to grab a bunch of pens that were < $10 each. I ended up with the following list:
1 Pilot Vpen (very similar to the Varsity)
1 Pilot Plumix (The medium nib is identical to the Pilot 78G Bold)
1 Pilot Petit1
4 Platinum Preppy pens in varying colors/nib sizes
1 Sailor Ink Bar
I’d like to write about these but I’m not sure how I’ll go about it. I could do a cheap pen shoot out and cover them all quickly in one article, or I could do a full review on each pen. I guess I’ll have to see what feels right when the time comes.
A little sneak peek: I’ve tried all of them and oddly enough, I’m a fan of the Fine Pilot nibs. I would not have guessed that as I’m normally a Medium nib guy.
