Exciting news! I wonder if Pilot will use a different filling system on this new pen as compared to the 845, i.e. Japanese eyedropper?
Posted 12 March 2016 - 00:04
I have several eye droppers, all but one vintage. I do like them as they write nicely but I do not understand why everyone is crazy about them, especially as the Con-70 holds a lot of ink. Just to my opinion.

Definitely a pen I'll anticipate. Hopefully they finally use a piston. I enjoy the 845 but don't like converters.

its not the 98's anniversary as the Custom 98 has already been done
If it's this year, then custom 988. Releases are usually in October, if I remember right.
but you could be right on the money on the 988... hmmm were not sure how this will go

very nice info ... but then again JPY 80,000 is way way over my range sadly
still i would very much like to see it and wishing it be a demonstrator please !!
Crystal Clear Demonstrators are such marvels, each with their set of stories clearly written out for all to feast on.

This is great news.
Hopefully they will also have it in different colors (a vermillion would be great). I would be all over it. I've already started saving my pennies .

The Pilot eye dropper on the Emperor is great. Gorgeous smooth and no issues. I far prefer to even the CON 70

I got excited but I hate big pens. I just ordered me a falcon.

This thread has been cited on the venerable font of fountain pen wisdom and arcana, Crónicas Estilográficas. The author of that posting has obtained new information from a mysterious unnamed source:
"This new pen seems to be one of the three pens Pilot Corporation is preparing to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company. The new size 30 nib is confirmed; and this model will be black. It will be released this coming October."
Start saving your benjamins.
