This is a classic, cigar-shaped fountain pen.  The clip is very retro with the word PILOT engraved in the clip.  The build quality is great.  There are some small details that, when you notice them, make you understand the design was carefully thought of.  One example is an o-ring on the grip section so that there is tension between the body and section without needing to over-tighten the body.

I am asking ¥13,500 ¥13,250 (currently around $134.90).  That includes the pen and a CON-70.  I can also include 2 ink cartridges, including available iroshizuku colors.

Shipping is free.

I have two of these in my private collection and they are great writers.  They are very easy to clean and maintain.  Wonderful pens!
