Regal and refined with an oversized nib and barrel, the Pilot Custom Urushi fountain pen boasts a two-toned nib size 30 made of 18K gold and rhodium. The impressive, nib size is designed for maximum impact and is significantly more expansive than the size 15 nib of the Custom 823.
The Custom Urushi is crafted from vermilion red ebonite and lacquered with pure Urushi lacquer (a natural sap) by Japanese maki-e artisans. Like their Namiki pens, Pilot uses a lacquering technique called Roiro, which requires substantial time and skill to create a uniform and mirror-like finish. Each Custom Urushi pen barrel is lacquered, cured and polished three times to create an exquisite finish in combination with luxurious custom gold elements.
Please note this product has limited production and therefore can only be ordered as a special order. At times, we will have particular nib variants on hand in which case the stock status indicator above the Add to Cart button will show as 'In Stock' and there is no wait time.
