Pilot Justus

the new Pilot Justus95 has been already reviewed on FPN and Comparison of the old and new Justus

as Bruno Taut mentioned that the "ornamental design" was invented designed by Shigeki Chiba 千葉茂樹 USD260658 and JP 586163 . however, the Justus original mechanism could be invented by Shikichi Yanagita 柳田清吉 as he filed the patent US4347011, "Fountain pen equipped with a resiliency adjustment device" on Nov 1979. it also referenced to the Japan patents S55-69496, S55-114592, S55-114593, S55-114594, S56-17172, S61-13097.

the new Justus95 has two finishes, the NB, "net black" or barleycorn and SB, "stripe black". it is larger than the original FJ-1000R-B released in 1979. the Justus95 can be filled with con-70 converter

the nib of the original Justus FJ-1000R-B,

the nib of Justus95, size #10 14k gold nib

and date code of the Justus95 nib,

and the nib size comparison,

the dimensions of the new Justus95 are as follows,
justus95 FJ-3MR-NB, capped:26.6g 147.8mm, pen:17.3g 133.7mm, cap:9.3g diameter:16.0mm, nib:0.56g
justus95 FJ-3MR-SB, capped:26.5g 147.7mm, pen:17.2g 133.2mm, cap:9.3g diameter:16.0mm
original FJ-1000R-B, capped:18.4g 140.7mm, pen:11.7g 125.2mm, cap:6.7g diameter:13.8mm, nib:0.38g

there are two movies by the Pilot Corp about the Justus95 (Artist: SHOHEI Otomo),

p.s. there was also a maple wood barrel FJK-1200K Justus, mentioned by a member of the PenCabin.

Great review. I have a Justus FJK-1200k, with mapple barrel and a B nib, and there is almost no information on the net about it. Thanks a lot
