A classic example of Pilot style, the new Custom Urushi Vermilion Barrel is particularly notable for its gold trim and flat-top design, which provides a distinctive contrast to the Yukari Royale Vermilion Urushi produced by Namiki, Pilot's artisanal offshoot.

The pen fills using Pilot's convenient cartridge-converter system, which allows for the use of either Pilot brand cartridges or any bottled fountain pen ink when using the provided converter. Even better, the converter in this case is Pilot's high-capacity CON-70 model, which gives this pen a capacity rivaling or surpassing that of many piston-filers.

The pen arrives in a simple but stylish presentation box which includes a starter pack of two ink cartridges as well as the complimentary converter. Pilot will be producing this pen in only very limited numbers - we strongly suggest placing a pre-order with us when it is not in stock in order to reserve the next available pen.
