Pilot Capless Fountain Pen – “Kasuri” Red
Pilot’s famous retractable fountain pen in a contemporary style. Blue with rhodium-plated trim and rhodium-plated 18k gold nib. Although known as the Carbonesque in Europe due to the superficial similarity of the finish with carbon-fibre, this finish is actually known as the Kasuri in Japan. Kasuri is a textile dyed with a resist technique to create the simple patterns reflected in this pen.
Reliable, convenient push-button retract mechanism was first developed in 1964, and has been continuously refined ever since. The Pilot Capless series is justifiably renowned for the high quality of the gold nib, as much as for the unusual and innovative retract mechanism.
