Silver Koi carp Fountain pen by Pilot – a traditional model for authentic writing
The Pilot Silver is the epitome of elegance, finesse and purity in a truly extraordinary design. Made of solid silver, this fabulously designed pen has a bullet-shaped silhouette. The object itself is a true work of art, thanks in particular to the perfection of its polish and the extreme finesse of the various motifs engraved on the barrel and cap.
To carry out this meticulous work, the craftsman begins by drawing a pattern on the body and cap with masking ink. Then they expose them to the etching liquid to make the design penetrate. The etching fluid eats away at the areas not protected by the masking ink and forms the pattern. Both elements are then exposed to a sulphurizing liquid to be heated and polished until the surface of the solid silver stands out.
Carp has an extremely strong meaning in Japanese culture. It is highly prized in Japanese gardens around the world. Its large size, colour and longevity make it an exceptional animal that has a prominent place in Japanese art. This emblematic fish represents bravery, perseverance, courage and love. Its cap is fitted with the brand’s characteristic rhodium-plated ballpoint clip.
The rhodium-plated 18-carat gold nib is set into the resin grip, giving it an elegant look. It is available in three sizes: F, M and B.
The Silver Koi carp fountain pen by Pilot is supplied with its converter and a black ink cartridge.
