Like most of Pilot’s production-line offerings, the Pilot Custom Heritage 912 is a streamlined, understated, professional looking pen. The pen is made from black, ingestion-molded plastic, polished to a mirror-like piano black shine, it features classical, restrained, rhodium-plated furniture. What’s particularly special about this pen, is the FA nib. The 14k gold FA nib on the Pilot Custom Heritage 912 comes close to a vintage 14k gold flex nib. The pen has a fairly standard, slightly concave section. The section itself is plastic, but the core of the section, as well as the threaded tenon that connects it to the pen’s barrel is metal. This gives the pen a nice bit of extra heft, and lends to a pen that feels much more solid in the hand. The Pilot Custom Heritage 912 have both good design and usefulness.
