I was in Tokyo for business this week and I had few hours to visit Itoya and Maruzen in Tokyo.

 

Pilot already distributed 2 new colors for Custom 74 for 2017: it is a kind of milled pattern body and cap, available in blue and black.

 

As I'm not english mother language, and I'm not sure if the description is understandable, here below a picture for the blue I purchased.

 

They had very few of that pens available: at Itoya only some black left, and the blue were available only at Maruzen, where I bought one of the last, even with a nib not ideal for me.

May I ask how much they were? :o

 

I assume this is some sort of LE since it has the same finish as the new VP or will it enter the line up next year?

10K yen sankodo had it so it's pretty much a JP only limited release and is probably stock limited
just asking
fabri00 was this Custom 74 available?
