Pilot is thrilled to announce the second new launch of the Custom 74 collection. The first launch was announced for Spring (Forest Green). The second color launch will be for Summer. The third and final launch will take place in Winter 2021. Each of the new Custom 74 colors are inspired by their respective launch each season.
The second color launch for this Summer is called Grenadine, which is a beautiful cross between deep orange and fiery red. This color is vibrant, bold and powerful. It perfectly embodies the effusive beauty of Summer.
The Custom 74 is designed to delight the fountain pen collector with its translucent ‘demonstrator-style’ barrel and archetypal embellishments. A special mechanism in the converter ensures a fluid and continuous flow of ink with no skipping for a premium, expressive writing experience. The nib is finely crafted from 14-karat gold and is rhodium plated to match the rhodium trim and clip. The nib is available in extra fine, fine, medium or broad point sizes. This classical demonstrator pen is refillable for continued use with a cartridge or Pilot’s CON-70 converter and arrives packaged in a striking presentation box.

Notes from The Pleasure of Writing Team
Pilot’s classic 14k gold nib fountain pen is everything you could want. Available in a cigar shape in a variety of colors, the 74 uses a #5 nib, which is a generous size perfect for everyday usage and writes with Japanese width. It writes very smoothly and with some wetness, so you might find yourself inking it fairly often with either Pilot’s proprietary cartridges or convertors, which make it a perfect traveling pen.
