SOLD : Pilot Myu 701 – H1071

SOLD!

The Myu is one of the most collectable Pilot fountain pens ever created.  Treasured by user and collectors this pen is truly one of a kind.  It has a stainless steel body and cap.  The nib and body are one piece.  This means that the nib cannot be replaced.  It also means that there is nothing but one smooth line from the center of the body to the nib.  This is one sexy pen!

I have another Myu 701 up for sale.  I sold the previous one.  This one is marked H1071.  That means the pen was made in the Hiratsuka Plant in October 1971.

The only flaw on this pen is the the black circle on the end of the cap.  In the picture, you can see the marring around the edges of the black dot.

This pen writes really well.  I did need to align the tines a bit it is to be expected from a 40 year old+ pen.  It wrote smooth and wet.  Perfect.  No skipping, great flow!  (I do need to work harder on my handwriting.)

This Myu can be used with a standard Pilot cartridge or a CON-20 convertor.

This pen has a little pitting.  It is noticeable in the “Pilot” picture and feed picture above.  There are also 2 other spots on the cap where pits can be seen.  The pitting can only be seen upon extremely close inspection and does not take away from the look of the pen.  The pen is used so there are also some small “wear and tear” scratches on the pen.  There are no major scratches or dents on this pen.  I would consider it to be in very good condition.

I am asking ¥15,500 for this pen.  This pen has been sold!  That price includes the pen, 2 cartridges and shipping.  For ink cartridges, I can include standard Pilot cartridges or Iroshizuku colors that I have available.  Please ask about the currently available colors.  I can include a CON-20 convertor for an extra ¥250.  At the exchange rate today that is about $165.00 US.  They are going for $113 – $256 used on ebay.

I can ship to almost any country.

    Hello, I would be interested in this pen with a converter, no need for the ink cartridges 🙂
    Shipping would be to Canada if that is OK 🙂
    Thank you 🙂
