Hi all, 

 

I am really excited to share pictures of the pilot pen I received in mail this morning! 

 

I had reached to multiple vendors across Europe and finally found one piece at Stilograph Corsani. 

 

Hope you enjoy it. Let me know your thoughts! 

 

Cheers,

Sidd

Ship design is appropriate for Pilot.

What a beauty! I was disappointed like many that there were no lower-priced special editions, and I'm not normally a fan of maki-e. But with the blue water and ship motif this is so ineffably Pilot that I covet it 😅 thank you for sharing!

Congratulations. It is indeed a beautiful pen. Mine should arrive next week. Possibly the last one available for Europe.

That is just plain gorgeous. I particularly like the nib - stunning, though of course it's the maki-e that takes all your attention!


Too many pens, too little time!

Thank you all for your comments!

Congrats! I agree, it seems that there are limited numbers remaining in Europe.

 

 

Beautiful, wonder when they will be available in the US?

 

I think its available for purchase online already. It is sold out at many stores too, I did look at US stores to potentially import it to London. 

 

What a beauty! I was disappointed like many that there were no lower-priced special editions, and I'm not normally a fan of maki-e. But with the blue water and ship motif this is so ineffably Pilot that I covet it thank you for sharing!

 

Yeah I really wish there was a lower-priced edition as well. I'm not yet comfortable to use this one for daily use but I am trying!

The two founders of Pilot actually served on the Meiji-Maru.

Thank you for posting pictures. It subjective, but it looks like the Pilot artists did nice work for the 100 anniversary pens.

Want !! - and much Kudos for inking it up and using it :) (though I'm sure most here would do the same).

Thanks! I was not sure about inking it up, but then it was the only way to really enjoy the purchase :) 

 

P.S - I'll look up the Fountain Pen Club and try to join you all next month!

Sorry for not liking the Pilot 100th anniversary stuff.

 

Anyway, your choice. Enjoy it.

Congratulations! What a beautiful pen! I will be able to have one this week in Japan. Why can you have the pen so early?
