Identifying vintage Pilot Elite (?)



Recommended Posts

Hi! I've dug up a vintage Pilot FP I remembered I had. I've also been trying to find out what type it is exactly. It has a date code on the barrel: OK 10. If I'm correct this means that it was made in december of 1974 in Pilot's Hiratsuka plant. However, that's where my knowledge ends. I've also found some information about Korean made Pilots, but I can't tie that information to this pen. The pen in the picture is not my pen, but my pen is exactly the same. The picture I found on Reddit. Thanks! 🙂

The bottom row of text on the sticker is 'Made in Japan' so that rules out a Korean connection.
