Pen Review: Pilot Custom 912 Waverly Nib
Indeed they do. I have been writing consistently with the 912 since before Christmas (Merry Christmas to me!) and the pen performs flawlessly. My previous experience with a Pilot Custom 74 F was not as successful partially because of the softness of the nib and the angle of my writing

Thinking about getting a dedicated pen for shimmer ink. Recommendations?
I own one myself and enjoy it very much. They are completely worry free when it comes to cleaning. Thickness is a bout a western B nib. If you prefer a fountain pen, I also recommend FPR flex nibs and the pilot 912 fa nib.

The INK Matters
This Pilot CH 912 with FA ("Falcon") Nib flexes with almost no effort, and is exactly what I was hoping for. However -- the flex nib is very thirsty, and the ink feed really needs a wetter-flowing or lubricated ink to function. With my first few tries (with regular ink), the pen skipped, railroaded,...

Pen Review: Pilot Custom Heritage 912 with PO Nib — The Gentleman Stationer
Dare I say that the Pilot Custom Heritage 912 with a PO nib might be the “ultimate note-taking pen” for those of us that like to cram as much writing as possible onto a page? This workhorse might not be flashy, but it showcases the best of what Pilot has to offer nib-wise.
Amazing Pen
Like the majority of Pilot pens I own, the Custom Heritage 912 Waverley nib has a great design, is comfortable in the hand, well balanced and a nib that is tuned to perfection. It is a great addition to any fountain pen collection and I absolutely love mine.

Pen Review: Pilot Custom Heritage 912 with FA Nib
Despite the problems with the ink flow on this pen, I have to say that this 912 with the FA nib is easily my favorite Pilot pen experience thus far. It’s probably not the pen I would turn to for a daily carry pen, or for taking notes at work (although I have used it for that). Instead, this is the pen I reach for when I want to take the time to write a nice letter to a friend or loved one

The “flex nib” I’ve been looking for!
I’ve been doing some research… snipe hunting. I did try a few options, then watched your YouTube piece on flex nib - the FA caught my eye and I went for it. Ignoring the CON-70 (which I have replaced with a CON-40 - with your guidance), I LOVE THIS.
I have some “fancy” pens and this setup is ste...

Nothing New Day! Modern Flex, Birmingham Ink & White Lightning ink additive (details in comments)
In general, I really enjoy it. The body is lightweight but feels solid and nicely finished. It’s a full size pen, but not oversized. Feels really good in my hand and is very comfortable to write with.
