The Pilot Tank eye dropper fountain pens are very traditional and has been in the market for more than 40 years. The unique plastic cup like design at the nib section prevents ink from leaking and you really don't need O rings and silicone gel. The steel nib is very smooth and easy to use. The fountain pen standard package come with a plastic pipette to facilitate the ink filling.

This is a pen that is worth the money you have paid for. It is not expensive and quite reliable. So far, I have not suffered from any leakages of any sort - haven't taken it up a plane yet though.
The pen is quite comfortable when one uses it for writing and is simple functional in nature. For that price, it is worth it. A good fountain pen to be considered for those starting to try out Pilot pens or for those who are considering it as their first purchase even.
always loves Pilot pens. Thank you!
Great Faux Gold Nib Writer
I only bought for its ability to be an eyedropper and its gold coated nib (even if it's faux). Surprisingly, even if it's steel, writing feels softer than my fave Metropolitan. Great times writing with it, light on the hand, classic look.
You wont regret it.
Extremely good value for your money.
I have several of these pens, also a couple in the other colours.
They are al very consistent, reliable writers. The nibs are very smooth, the Fine less so than the Medium, obviously.
Being Japanese nibs, the medium writes like a Western Fine and the Fine writes like a Western extra-fine.
I think this pen is one of the best pens you can find in this price range.
The only gripe I have with them is the foam sponge that is placed at the bottom of the pen's barrel. It helps keep inkflow consistent when using the pen as an eyedropper, but the pen can't fit a cartridge or converter unless you remove the foam. This is a very difficult thing to do.
