Genuine Japan Pilot Elite 95s with 14k M nib - black
The styling is 70s svelte — retro and beautiful. I bought the black with gold trim. This is a light and short pocket pen that transforms to full size with the cap posted. Some kind of magic happens when posting and unposting the cap. I have never experienced such a silky smooth feeling as it glides ...

Pilot E95S Fountain Pen Overview
It’s no secret, I’m a fan of Pilot. And pens like the new Pilot E95S show you why. Sure, I’m a retailer of theirs and you should always take what I say about products I sell with that in mind, but I try to be pretty honest and objective despite that. I won’t go saying that the E95S is the best pen e...

NPD - Pilot Elite 95s (f) - Burgundy/Ivory (aka “deep red”)
Love this ink. It never fails me. I inked up my Pilot Elite with it and…it was as lovely as expected.

Pilot Elite 95S (Modern)
In 1964 Platinum launched the 200, a ‘long-short’ pocket pen. This was followed four years later by Pilot with the Elite 95 S, and while production of both was stopped before the Millennia, probably in the 1980s, it was the Pilot that was remembered with the result that in 2014 an updated version w...

Real Deal Japanese Elite 95s
This is a great pen. Yes, they are small and must be posted. Yes, they lack heft but the build quality is excellent. They are like writing with a reed in the wind. When you see that beautiful nib for the first time it is impressive and that is what this pen is all about. The medium nib is incredibly...

I have finally found The One.
I have small hands & a permanently-injured dominant hand. This is the ONLY pen thin, light, and smooth enough to enable me to write for hours. Ink doesn’t seem to matter that much. The nib was smooth out of the box. The only thing I don’t like is that Pilot doesn’t offer this amazing pen in more col...

Elegance and practicality
The Pilot Elite/95s in EF is one of my favourite fountain pens of all time - particularly the maroon version, but this black version is also very elegant, if a little less distinctive. Nevertheless, the pen design and the shape of the nib and its extreme fineness is sophisticated and beautiful. This...

It is a sculpture!
I wrote the title with thoughtful consideration. All pens in the classic shape or any modern deviation will have an ugly joint between the section and the barrel, be it either a steep step-down or irritating threads right where I hold the pens. This Elite design takes care of that. Anyone can find a...

A good daily-use or travel pen.
Received what I was expecting. The pen isn't perfect. But very nice. I wanted a Japanese pen with an Extra Fine nib in my collection. One thing if you're considering this pen in E.F. is that Japanese pen brands make their Fine, and Extra Fine nibs finer than European brands do. A Pilot Fine is equiv...
