Pilot 78G

His Nibs email



New! Pilot CON-50 piston converter    $6.50    Sold out

Let me first try to clear up the confusion about the nib sizes available. The Japanese 'F' designation is actually like a western xx-fine nib. The 'M' is like a typical western fine nib. The 'B' nibs are actually cut as stub/italic nibs -- as you can see in the photo above -- and they produce lovely, shaded writing. I don't have an exact measurement of the 'B' nibs, but the thicker downstroke line would be similar to a western light-medium or medium.


L to R: F, M, B, BB
(these are working, inked nibs)


 

 
"Norman, the pens and ink arrived today exactly as promised.  The finer point on the Pilot pen is perfect for my special project requirements.  The DUKE pen is beautiful and smooth. Thank you for working with me to match my needs to the proper instruments and for the recommendation on the Private Reserve ink."
J. W., San Diego, CA

"Hi Norman! Just wanted to let you know I got the Pilot 78G today.  This is a sweet little pen, I love the way how smoothly it writes, even with the F (XF) nib.  I also like how light it is -- I can write for hours without my hand tiring. And that Pilot converter is a perfect fit for an old Pilot Ecrino that I have. Now I can finally get away with having to refill an old cartridge with an eyedropper when I want to use it. Thanks again!"

R. R., Philippines

"Dear Mr. Nibs: Pilot arrived safely. Thank you for shipping so fast. This is my second Pilot and I also like stub nibs...This one writes very nicely."
B. M., Medford, OR

"Norman, I received the pen today! This is my first shall we say "economy" pen. Boy, what a great pen! I've only used it for a few pages worth of writing but it's just a fabulous writer! If all your pens come with nibs this smooth you got yourself a customer for life! I should review this with the Namiki falcon that I have that doesn't write any better than this pen at less than a 1/4 of the cost! Thanks again Norman, you rock!

P.s. The handwritten note is a great touch!"
B. P., Bridport, VT

"Norman, Just a quick note to say I'm quite pleased with the pen.  I purchased it for note taking at work  primarily.  It is totally fit for that purpose and a great value. It is a super fine writer with that F nib and, loaded with super saturated Noodler's Black, it does not seem at all finicky on even the most unworthy paper stock.  The lines are smooth and crisp. My interest in the CON-50 converter was unwarranted. The squeeze style filler is not objectionable to me. Thank you, I will be back!"

V. G., Amherst, NH

"Norman: Received the Hero 616 and Pilot 78G today.  Must say they're great--properly tuned and ready to go to work! The 616 writes just like my beloved Parker 51 Flighter (I'll use it for travel since the Flighter has become to valuable to lose).  The Pilot with the F nib is perfect for my research notebooks (where I tend to write with very small handwriting). Thanks!  Fine pens and great service. Have a great day!"
M. D., West Jordan, UT

"This is a long overdue note to let you know how much I love my Teal Blue and Red Pilot 78G pens with Broad (italic) nibs! Simple.  Elegant.  Handsome.  Feather Quill Light of weight.  Joys to use.  I use Private Reserve Blue Suede in the Teal Blue pen and Diamine Dragon Red in the Red pen.  Perfect matches!  I would proudly gift your Pilot 78G Broad (italic) pens to friends with confidence.  I had several times to apply the graduated techniques you set out in your nib adjusting tutorial that you emailed me to get them to lay down a consistent, unscratchy, wet line, but I finally achieved it in both pens, and they each now lay down a lovely, bold, italic line.  I do hope you will continue to offer them, as I want to add a black one and a green one to my collection in due course, and I want to gift one to each of a couple of old college buddies of mine.  People often actually comment, "Wow!  What a cool pen!  Where'd you get that?" when I use either of them to sign credit card purchase receipts!  I doubt they even recognize them as fountain pens, but they're clearly impressed with the look of the pens and with the bold, colorful, italic line they lay down, and that's fine with me, but I always say, "This a fountain pen.  You should try one sometime.  It'll change your life!  I can refer you to a great source to buy one for only twenty-five dollars.  And you can use any ink colors you like in them." So, thanks again for a pair of lovely pens, Norman.  I'm thrilled to have them in my collection!  And so...  I'll be back!  Hasta a vista, baby!"
C. L., Burlington, VT


"Hello Norman, I picked up the pen today. It's quite the dandy little writer. The super light weight is different from any other pen that I own and I like it. 
Thanks for your customarily excellent service."
Belliveau Cove, Canada

"Hi Norman, I received my Pilot 78G yesterday and test drove it last night, what a smooth writing pen!  I love the italic nibs, I have two other italic nibs I use on my two Lamy Safaris, and the italic nibs are always my first choice anymore.  I'm surprised they're not more popular and widely available. Thank you for the genuine-ness of your service, and the outstanding value of the 78G."
D. W., Patuxent River, MD

"Just wanted to let you know that the pen arrived today and I must say I and my partner could not be happier. The effort you do to make it so authentic and with note, just blew us away. The wax stamp and the way you folded your note was just over the top. Writes so smooth as well as just one of the best items I have ever purchased. Thank you for your extremely fast shipping and just overall wonderful experience. I will buy the "Victorian" when it comes in." 
J. M., Carson City, NV

"Norm, the Pilot 78's came yesterday and I've inked and written with both of them. What fantastic pens. For the past ten years, I've been a convert to the Pelikan Steno pens which used to be sold by that online pen shop back east that closed down recently. Of course, Pelikan has also stopped making the Steno pen.  Fortunately, I have half-a-dozen of them, but I have recently become really interested in italic nibs. I have to tell you, the Pilot's are simply magnificent. I'll be ordering the two colors I didn't get soon, and maybe I can try out the Monteverde stub also. Thanks for the quick service and for the great pens you sent."
T. M. Wichita, KS

"Hi Norman, I came back from a brief weekend trip to find my pens and ink had arrived safely on Saturday.  My soon-to-be-5-year-old son and I had great fun cleaning the pens, and he enjoyed watching me figure out how to ink them.  It was surprisingly easy, and we loved the colors of the ink.  I put a different ink into each of the 3 pens and wrote him a note using all 3—he loved it, and the pens wrote very nicely.  He also asked to add the wax seal from your note to his collection of treasures, and he then sat down to write me a note using a colored pencil (purple, to match the tanzanite ink).  I think you might have a future customer! The "F" nib 78G is amazing; I can't believe how smooth it is, and the Monteverde Green looks great in it.  I think writing with the "B" nib is going to take more practice to get it consistent, but I wrote a brief note with it today with decent success.  And I used the 702 to do some writing while I taught today—the line is beautiful, and it's more comfortable than I expected a pen of that size to be.  Thanks again for your attention to the details from nibs to notes, and for providing such excellent writing tools."
C. P., Easton, PA

"Hi Norman, just wanted to let you know I received the pens and ink on Wednesday.  Very fast shipping, even with the border crossing.  I love, love, love the pens.  The Pilot 78G - both the F and B nibs - are wonderful.  Somehow my penmanship improve with both these pens! The Hero 329 is also great - I love the extra fine nib and this will now be my everyday writing pen.  And finally, I found inks that are beautiful, deep and bright in colour!  The Private Reserve Spearmint is the exact shade of green I was looking for and the Purple Mojo is a wonderful shade of purple.  By the way, I had some issues filling the pens as I've never owned a pump style cartridge, only piston style.  But thanks to your video on YouTube, I was able to follow your tips and now I'm good to go!  Thanks again."
C. P., Oshawa, Canada

"Just as a further note about the M 78G I’d just like to report how soooooo smooth it writes!!! It quite definitely has the best “feel” of any of my FP’s (cheap & not so cheap included)."
A. H., United Kingdom

"Hi Norman, I received the pen this morning [with an 'F' nib]. What a pleasant way to start the day! The pen is wonderful and I already have spent the last two hours writing with it. It writes very smooth and it suits me very well as far as the grip size and the weight is concerned. Thanks a lot. It is a real delight. I am really enjoying it."
S. S., France

"I have been using your pilot pen for over a year; and, because of its lightness, smoothness and lack of fussiness, find it excellent for endurance writing.  It is also great for sketching.  A workhorse!"
R. C., Denver, CO

"Hi Norman, I want to let you know that the pens arrived and I have found both to be wonderful writers, each in its own way.  The M nib is like butter--so incredibly smooth.  I have +200 dollar pens that can't come close. The B nib is like a slender calligraphy pen (as your web page description indicates) and is a ton of fun to play around with.  Both have perfect ink flow, and both feel really good in my hand.  Thank you very much.  I have been a Pilot/Namiki fan for years, and it is nice to learn that their somewhat more basic models are constructed to the same high standards (though I am sure your nib tweaking helped)."
E. W., Chicago, IL

"First, I'm really enjoying the pens I purchased.  I haven't used a fountain pen since elementary school, and I believe using one actually improves my (abysmal) handwriting.  And it's much less tiring than a ballpoint.  I should have done this a long time ago.  All three I ordered from you [Dollar, Camlin] write beautifully, and the ink colors you picked for me are perfect."
V. C., Richmond, TX

"Just wanted to let you know that the 2 Pilot 78G pens arrived safely on Monday and I'm enjoying them very much.  They are every bit as good as advertised, a lovely fine line that works beautifully on my favourite papers.  Thanks for your excellent service and attention to quality.  I'm sure I'll be darkening your  electronic door again in the future."
D. H., Toronto, Canada

From the blog, http://www.elizabethperry.com/woolgathering/, of one of my customers: "The person from whom I buy some of my favorite pens always sends a folded note, handwritten in pen (of course), and sealed with sealing wax. This was drawn with my new pen - a Pilot 78G. Both pen and note arrived today."

"Hi Norman, just to let you know, the Pilot G78 and the Dollar pens arrived today. They are just great pens and just to my liking, classic understated look, lightweight and with some “bite”. Your reputation is well earned - these pens wrote right away without any “breaking in” or extra cleaning, which is the normal routine for new pens in my experience. Thanks for the personal note – that and the pens really brightened up my day. In spite of the silly Danish Custom rules – it won’t be the last time I buy here, it’s worth it."
H. N., Denmark

"Many thanks for my Pilot 78G in Cinnabar Red which arrived recently: it writes superbly smoothly, thanks.
I am sure to your ministrations before dispatch!"

M. F., Bromley, UK

"Just wanted to say thank you Mr. Haase. I'm now a very happy owner/user of a Pilot 78G.  I thought I'd let you know that with a bit of patience, even a lefty can use the B nib, no problems.  I've loaded it up with Noodler's Marine Green, and I just couldn't wait to start writing holiday season greeting cards!  I've attached a picture just so you could see it can be done, please excuse the poor penmanship and photography though...I just love this pen! Thank you for your note with the writing samples."
B. B. Valdosta, GA

"The Pilot pens arrived safely and I'm very pleased with their performance.  Thank you very much for an extremely positive shopping experience.  I very much appreciate your handwritten note. I must say that I'm a convert.  I'm going to try to spread the gospel of fountain pens to my family.  I hope to be a repeat customer soon.
H. M., Silver Spring, MD

"Norm, the Pilot pens arrived today and I am most pleased.  They are everything you described them to be and more. Also, I am sincerely impressed as to the way you handle your product, your customer, your business.  Most PROFESSIONAL. Your handwritten note really touched me and said it all so very well.  Though you may be nearing extinction as one who takes pride in his vocation, Keep It Up!  I'm thankful I have lived long enough to now be able to point to your way of doing business as the best example.  To be sure, as soon as I obtain the resources, I'll be ordering more pens from you. Thanks for all you do and the way you care.
T. G., Clinton, MS

"Norm, I have been trying out my new Pilot for the last 2 weeks and dubbed it my Ever ready.  Unlike my much more expensive Parker 75, the Pilot lays down a nice line of ink every time I take off its cap---no coaxing, no shaking, no licking the tip to get it started."
J. K., Evergreen Park, IL

"Norman, the pens arrived and are wonderful.  The Duke is a Gorgeous pen and an incredibly smooth writer (given your adjustments), the ink flow is perfect for me!  The Pilot is an incredible value, the stub nib writes wonderfully and it seems to be a great value in an everyday writer.  I believe I remember that it comes in a BB nib as well, if so I will be ordering one.  I love stub nibs and the nib is what makes that pen a great piece. Thanks for your prompt service.  Till next time...."
A. R., Huntington, NY

"By the way, the Pilot pen in my last order has been a true pleasure to write with. I really believe the additional service you provide of checking every nib is a tremendous plus. I very much like the idea of taking the pen out and start writing immediately, without the surprise of a bad (poorly tuned) nib. Many thanks."
M. B., Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

"The pen arrived yesterday. WOW what a great writer. I now have a new favorite pen. Your charming note convinced me that I'll enjoy the Fine just as much as the Broad, so I'll be ordering one sometime in the next few weeks. Thank you for your great service!"
J. R., Charlottesville, VA

"Norman - I just wanted to let you know that my package has arrived.  The 78G Fine is every bit as sweet and smooth as all the fellow FPN board members have claimed.  The lineweight is also perfect. I just LOVE IT.
Thanks for your great service for a small order like mine and I would surely order from you again."

K. L., Washington, D.C.

"Hello Norman, delighted with the pen which arrived today. As you know, I'm a great fan of italic writing and its not at all easy to find pens with nibs as good as these, and at a bargain price. Thanks again."
R. W., Glasgow, Scotland

"Hi Norman, the pens are excellent! I received the package about a week ago, but actually tried them yesterday. The delivery took about a week. My kids and I are delighted, the writing is smooth and effortless. Those Pilot pens are pure pleasure, mini Torpedo is a blast! Mini torpedo is pleasantly heavy and sits nicely in the hand. Posting is not a problem at all, I mean, once you know the trick. Many many thanks!"
B. R., Nepean, Canada

"Dear Norman, thank you for filling my order for the Pilot 78G (B). I have used it many times since receiving it and I am thrilled at how well it works. At such a low price, it's quite a value. I'm planning to order the BB in a few weeks.
J. H., Fort Wayne, IN

"Hi Norman! I received my newest treasure from you, Forest Green, Fine nib, Pilot 78G, and have been happily journaling, and note taking with this amazing little pen.  Thanks to your fine tuning, this pen skates nicely across my paper (Apica notebooks, Levenger Notabilia, and for good measure a little pocket sized moleskine square ruled journal) The ink flow is just right for me and I can say that this pen will be one of my 'go to pens' and see a lot of use. Thanks so very much for your great nib skills and light speed shipping!...In the palace of Hisnibs.com, the Pilot 78G shines as bright as any gemstone and guided by your handiwork, it can truly be called a jewel among pens. Could you tell I really like the pen?"
R. L., Spokane, WA

"Today I've been writing with my Pilot 78G--it's my favorite pen! I also own a vintage Pelikan 100N, a Sailor Sapporo, 2 Pelikan 200s, two vintage Watermans, and a Conway Stewart Dandy, among many others.
B. T., Troy, AL

"Norman,  my Pilot 78G has arrived! This pen is everything the reviews said it was, great line variation, smooth nib, easy to write with. etc,. I filled it with Private Reserve DC Supershow Blue and could not believe how beautiful this little pen writes, it really brings some personality to my handwriting. It arrived 2 days after it was ordered, and I really appreciate the handwritten note you enclosed with the writing samples of the other nibs. Personal service like this is hard to find, and I will be purchasing from you again in the near future. Thanks again."
R. S., Olmos Park, TX

"Norman, just wanted to let you know that after a few weeks of use, the Pilot 78G has become my favorite everyday pen. The combination of size, weight and nib fit exceptionally well with my needs. Thanks for recommending it. I'm also sold on the Private Reserve ink. I'll be back for more."
B. C., Wheeling, WV

"I wanted to let you know that after using the pen daily I am very happy with it. The 78g B nib is smooth and gives me the line variation I have been looking for. Thanks for the great service."
J. H., Rockwood, TN

Hi Norman, I got the pen today.  The postman tried to deliver on Friday, but no one was home to sign for the package, so I had to wait until today to get to the post office.  It's probably a good thing; if I had had the pen over the weekend, not much would have gotten done around here.  So I played with the pen all day at work, grabbing one type of paper after another to try it out. In a nutshell, I'm so impressed at the quality of the nib in a $25 pen.  Of course, I know that you also take a look at the nibs before you send a pen out.   I wasn't able to do the usual wash-up the nib business at the office, so I inked it with the Midnight Blues I got from you.  First time I put it to paper, I had a line!  Norm, I'm still trying to get a decent line from my $120 Waterman Carene.  Maybe I should sell the Carene and get four/five more of these?  And it's a nice looking and very comfortable pen to hold....Thanks very much, Norm!  It's always a pleasure to buy a pen from HisNibs.com. J. L., Atlanta, GA

"Hi Norm, I received the pen yesterday, and I must say, it was worth it. I've been playing with it since, and it's stays on me wherever I go. I thought it was a shame that I write ugly with something so fun to write with, so I've decided to improve my handwriting... Thanks so much!"

I. S., Champaign, IL

"Norman, Received the Pilot 78G "M" nib in the mail this morning. Inked the FP with Noodler's Hunter Green. The nib is very smooth and the pen weighs almost nothing. Have been using the pen most of the day taking notes at work. It is a very good pen for the money.  Thank you for the fast service."
D. J., Martinsville, IN

"Received my order in good time and have tried out two of them already.  The Pilot with the B nib is great, especially for your price.  Works good for me, as I am a left handed writer. I have also tried the Wing Sung and it is the first fine nib I have tried that works for me as a lefty.  I have avoided fine nibs because they
normally do not work for my left hand but this one is great. Many thanks for "fixing up" the nibs."

R. H., Dixon, IL

"The Pilot 78G is the M-14 of pens. Not the biggest boomstick or with the most bling, but dependable and perfect as an everyday carrying piece."
D.O., Pensacola, FL

"Norman, Just a note to let you know that I got the Pilot 78G with "B" nib sometime ago.  The instrument is a real pleasure to write with, so much so that I find myself using it for normal, everyday use.  It may seem
small in comparison to my other pens but it really is comfortable in my hands."

C. B., military address

"A couple of months ago, I ordered a Pilot 78 from you.  After considerable use, I just wanted to write and add my voice to the chorus of praise for this pen.  It's a marvelous little daily writer, made all the more desirable by your attractive pricing.  The nib is smooth with a hint of flex and I find the ink flow to be just right -- not to much nor too little.  It's an attractive pen, looking much richer than it's actual cost.  And it is incredibly light.  It's one of a handful of pens I write with the cap on. Just to let you know, Pilot / Namiki cartridges fit this pen perfectly."
D. H., Gainesville, GA

"I just received the Pilot stub nib. Very nice. It's easier to use for ordinary writing than a calligraphy italic nib." S.C., Clifton, NJ

"I  received the pens today. The 237-1 Accountant pens are very good writers, and the Pilot 78G pen with a fine nib point is simply terrific - a very smooth and capable writing instrument!! I also wish to thank you for the handwritten note using a variety of nibs and inks - much appreciated."
C. S., Zabbar, Malta

"Norman, I just wanted to let you know that I received my pens on Wednesday and I was very pleased with them! Especially the Pilot, it's the best pen that I've ever bought for less than $30. The nib on it is buttery smooth! Plus your shipping was lightning fast and very reasonable. I will definitely be ordering from you again!"
Josh Haney, New Castle, IN

"Hi, Norman - These Pilots really and truly are terrific pens. I've been using them and the [Hero] 329 exclusively for almost a month and it's all good! Haven't touched my Pelikans and old Parkers in quite a while...Thanks a million."
C. D., Berkeley, CA

"Boy, for the price you can't beat this little guy, can you. Love the look of the line the nib lays down [referring to 'B' nib]. Very light and very simple and elegant. Thanks so much!"
K. C., Lincoln, NE

"Hi Norman, I have received the Pilot 78G pens and they are lovely!  What great little writers, and such good value. :D The nibs are amazingly smooth and super-fine, one of the nicest nibs I've ever come across [referring to 'F' nib].  I'm kicking myself for not ordering a dark green one too! Let me know if you ever see more!" 
LMY, Gladstone, Australia

"Thanks! I received the Pilot 78G today and inked it with Private Reserve Black Cherry. It's a very fine line [referring to 'F' nib] (almost as fine as the Hero 237-1 XF) and a shockingly smooth writer. Very solid and
well-made too, it has a nice weight for a plastic pen. Very nice!"

M. M., Salt Lake City, UT


One of my suppliers in China came across these lovely, mid-sized fountain pens from Pilot of Japan. He believes that the 78G is a discontinued model, which would make these NOS (new, old stock). In any case, he sent me a sample of one a couple of months ago, and I've been putting it through its paces ever since, and I'm very happy with the results and my experience using the pen.

These are acrylic pens, so very light-weight. One can therefore write for hours without any fatigue. They measure 5-1/8" capped and 5-3/4" posted. The clip says 'Pilot' near the bottom and the wider of the two cap rings is interrupted on the back of the cap with 'Japan'.

The cap itself screws onto the barrel and when removed reveals the gold-plated steel, spear-shaped nib. As mentioned above, the 'F' nib is equivalent to a western x, or even xx-fine, the 'M' nib to a western fine, and the 'B' is actually a stub/italic.

 

         

These nibs are marked "Pilot Super Quality Japan M", with each word engraved vertically down the nib (it's a little hard to make out in my photo). Interestingly, the ink-overflow combs of the feed underneath the nib run parallel to the length of the nib, unlike the usual transverse arrangement. I can say that they work just as well .

Unscrewing the section from the barrel displays the pump or squeeze style of filler for bottled ink.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT SERVICE NOTE: Every nib that ships from His Nibs is closely examined under high magnification and tuned or adjusted if needed. About 85% of modern nibs need some adjustment out-of-the-box from the manufacturer for an optimal writing experience. Most commonly, the tines of the nib are misaligned -- which would cause scratchiness at the minimum; the slit between the tines is partially or fully closed -- which would starve the nib of ink and at best cause skipping; or the slit between the tines is too wide -- which will either again cause skipping, or conversely, flooding. There are other factors  -- such as separation of the nib from the feed -- that are inspected and repaired before any pen leaves the Palace.

The only 100% guarantee of course comes when the pen is actually filled with ink and written with for the first time, but our pre-shipping inspections and tunings have eliminated 99.99999 (my finger is getting tired) of the frustrations that a customer experiences when first using a new fountain pen. Although this can be time-consuming on occasion, it affords our customers a much more pleasant experience when receiving a fountain pen from His Nibs -- and saves us the frustration of dealing with returns!

Warranties and returns

If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.

Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .

We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
