- Product Details
The Pilot Capless retractable fountain pen is a product rich in both history and performance. Its brilliant design and ingenious technology make it a pen for the new age. A larger size, durable metal body and attractive appointments make the Capless unmistakably unique. All are available with an 18 karat gold fine, medium or broad nib. Cartridge / Converter filling system, converter provided. We say: A really distinctive pen - their aren't too may retractable Fountain pens around. This one is tried and tested, having first emerged in 1964 to commemorate the Tokyo Olympics, and having developed continually since then. All Pilot Capless fountain pens have an 18k gold nib in Fine, Medium or Broad (the fine is very fine indeed). The nib is of the highest quality, and softer than we have come to expect from many European or American nibs. A joy to use!
