It was revolution in the writing tool world. Quality, design and price... standard and foundation is here. Maybe it is correct that this "became" standard.
This is it.
All foundation for writing is here. Moderate thickness of axis, balanced weight, preferable condition of nib and chic design. Perfect. By the way, there are "742" and "743".

"CUSTOM 74" is #5, the most smallest among this 3 series (But this doesn't mean large nib is good).
