The Pilot Custom Heritage 92 is one of my newer purchases. I spotted an excellent deal for the orange model on Amazon, so I decided to make the purchase. I've had many great experiences with the Pilot brand and the Custom Heritage 92 is no exception. I'm absolutely loving this pen!
Material: Resin Nib: 14k Gold Appointments: Rhodium plated Filling System: Piston Length (Capped): 136mm Length (Uncapped): 122mm Length (Posted): 151mm Section Diameter: 9.8mm Barrel Max Diameter: 11.7mm Cap Max Diameter: 17.4mm Weight, Uncapped: 12g Weight, Capped: 20g
The Pilot Custom Heritage 92 came well packaged in a silver protective box. Inside the silver box is a gray plastic case which contains the pen. In the past, I've been disappointed with Pilot's packaging, but I was very shocked by how nice this case is. The case seems as if it will hold up well for those who use the case often. Included are the pen, instruction manual, and warranty information.
The Pilot Custom Heritage 92 is a beautiful pen with a solid build. The pen comes in the same color schemes as the Pilot Custom 74: blue, orange, purple, smoke, and clear demonstrator. Each color option has the same smoke colored grip, piston knob, and finial. The Custom Heritage 92 has a rhodium-plated 14k gold nib to match the rings and clip. The entirely transparent barrel allows you to view the ink level.
The Custom Heritage 92 is a piston filler, so it holds an ample amount of ink. To fill the pen with ink, gently unscrew the piston knob until it stops turning. Immerse the nib into the ink and slowly tighten the knob. You will see the ink filling into the pen's barrel. It's that easy!
The Pilot Custom Heritage 92 is well balanced and feels very comfortable in the hand both posted and unposted. The writing experience is outstanding and the pen writes wonderfully smooth paired with Pilot Iroshizuku Take-Sumi ink. The nib on the Pilot Custom Heritage 92 produces clean lines with a consistent ink flow. The nib is quite stiff, so line variation is limited.
Penman's Final Remarks
The Pilot Custom Heritage 92 is a great everyday fountain pen that holds an ample amount of ink. The 14k gold nib provides a superior writing experience. The Custom Heritage 92 is one of my favorites and I've come to expect nothing less than perfect from Pilot products.
