A well loved pilot elite. There's no dents or dings, but quite a few tiny scratches that can't be felt by fingers (pilot just used crazy soft lacquer on their pocket pens for reasons I don't understand, even my own E95S has scuffs from being next to a plastic phone)
 
The silver lacquered metal cap and barrel have some well preserved filigree screen printed, and a knurled and faceted band that looks awesome. The clip is clean, smooth, and hinged, with very few signs of wear. the smooth slip cap comes off to reveal a lovely maroon section and the large, iconic inlaid pilot 18k elite nib. This is a simple F, not a flexible model, but it does have some spring to it. Despite being marked an F, I find it writes a lovely, glassy smooth EF with whispers of F only when your hand gets heavier. The section was gently polished and given a thin coat of wax, and there seems to be a single kanji character stamped in the bottom of the barrel. Possibly a personalization, but not only is it in japanese, it's on the underside of the section and you will never, ever see it. The section is smooth and blemish free.
 
dimensions are 11.7cm capped, 10.2 uncapped, and 14.3 posted, 9.4mm section.
 
The only converter it takes is the CON-20 squeezie, in addition to standard pilot cartridges. I'll include a pilot black cartridge with the pen.
 
This is a daily user, not a collector's piece, but it's still quite clean and would just be a beast of an everyday pocket pen.
