    Hi! I already have 3 reviews of wonderful and exceptional Pilot Myu models on my site, and today I want to show you the higher (by size) model of this family.

    Pilot Murex MR-500SS (made in Japan) 1985.

    The shape of this fountain pen no resembles as rocket like Myu and even more reminds me of another legendary pen from the 70s Aurora Hastil in almost flat cylindrical body only slightly widening in the center, which when folded looks more like a cigarette. With the cap removed, I can already see a futuristic, for the 70s, magnetic levitation truck . The material of all body is brushed stainless steel. The filling system is cartridge-converter, by proprietary Pilot format, but it is possible to install converters only Con-20 or Con-40. The cap on friction, but closes with a click at the end, which reminds me of the signature DuPont click.

    Columbia with Eversharp Skyline Nib (1948-1958) made in ??? perhaps USA.

    This vintage replica was bought by me by accident . In general, I think this is not even quite a replica, but a hybrid on the Eversharp Skyline (cap) and Eversharp Symphony (body). The instrument is quite vintage, I assume it was made before the 60s. On the one hand, a clear imitation suggests the idea of ​​being enriched on the wave of the popularity of the model (by analogy with modern Chinese production), but on the other hand, it is possible that fans of the Eversharp brand which are dissatisfied with the end of production of the Skyline and Symphony line (1948-1952), could do it, llike as Armando Simoni club





    Ground original M nib to UEF size

    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!
