Welcome to The Pleasure of Writing!
Pilot is thrilled to announce the first of three new color launches for the Custom 74 collection. The launches will occur in Spring, Summer and Autumn of 2021 and will include colors inspired by each season. The initial color launch for Spring is an alexandrite inspired, fresh Forest Green color. Green is a powerful color that stimulates innovative minds while promoting harmony and balance and boosts creative thinking.
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.
Nib Material: Rhodium plated 14k gold
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
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.
