The expert’s opinion: another exceptional pen from Pilot, the Custom 845 shines with its many superb assets.  Unlike the Custom Urushi, which is more suited to men, this beautiful pen is equally suited to men and women. Everything about this pen is exceptional: from the deep red lacquer – as shiny as a mirror – to the beautiful two-tone nib, not to mention the design and the many details, it will leave no one indifferent. The grip is very pleasant, the proportions are well thought out and the object is very well balanced. The ink flow is regular and, whatever the variations and pressures, the nib fulfills its function with ease and precision. It will find its place in a sumptuous wooden box designed for this purpose.

The Custom 845 Red fountain pen – a precious model for beautiful writing

The Custom 845 is the smaller version of the famous Custom Urushi. Made on an ebonite base, the pen has been carefully coated with the famous Urushi lacquer, using the Roiro lacquering technique, a speciality of the maki-e (Kokkokai school) craftsmen of Japan, thus enhancing the object.

This lacquer, which comes exclusively from the sap of the Japanese varnish tree (an Asian tree), has been used for thousands of years as a protection once it has been applied to objects and dried. It has an incredible ability to resist corrosion, scratches and even impacts. This type of fountain pen therefore has an exceptional lifespan which can easily extend over several generations.

The colour of this lacquer varies according to its exposure to light, generating incomparable shades, brilliance and shining. Many coats are necessary to achieve such a result, but also a considerable investment of time, since each coat will require a drying time that can vary from 3 to 7 days. Depending on the number of coats, which can be as many as 20, many weeks and often several months are needed to create such a piece, to which must be added a meticulous finishing work.

Elegant with its deep red lacquer, the Custom 845 has gold-plated trims: a thin ring on the section and cap, a wider ring at the end of the body that tapers, and a central ring on the cap, on which the model name has been engraved in black. The beautiful two-tone rhodium-plated 18-carat gold nib is available in four sizes: F, M, B and BB. Supplied with its converter and a black ink cartridge, it will be delivered in its exclusive wooden box.
