Pilot Custom 742 Black/Gold, Custom 742 14K Sutab nib, inked with De Atramentis Green Apple

I like a fancy looking pen but sometimes the pen means less than the nib and the ink. This is one such occaison, the Pilot Custom 742 pen is your typical Black resin with gold trim - looks a bit like a Montblanc Meisterstuck from some angles. The nib is a Sutab (SU) which to me is a fine stub. It is bit of a dry writer and can be problematic with some inks. De Atramentis Apple Green ink is a pleasant enough light green shade but the scent is too similar to that of a clothes washing detergent my wife uses for my liking.
