The Pilot Capless Stripe fountain pen features soft luminous lines in a strong textured body with rhodium plating from top to bottom. The Capless barrel contains a mechanism of rare precision which allows the nib to retract into the barrel when not in use. The perfect combination of luxury and technology. The 18k gold nib is rhodium plated in Fine and Medium. It comes in a gift box, with the unique Pilot Converter-40 inside the pen and a black IC-50 ink cartridge.
