A modern-day household brand, Pilot have been manufacturing pens and stationery in Japan since 1918. Today, they are a global force and produce a range of writing instruments that can cost anywhere from pennies to hundreds of pounds. Whether you've happened to use a spare Pilot for your notes in the office, or you've sampled one of the high-end writing instruments, you will recall the versatile high-quality nature present throughout their range.

The Capless perfectly encapsulates the Pilot ethos. The brass body is coated with an exclusive finish: a resin-impregnated toughening material derived from birch wood. A well-weighted fountain pen, the Capless is famed for its truly retractable ultra-smooth 18 carat gold nib.

The click mechanism advances or retracts the nib into the body of the pen where a seal closes behind it to prevent drying out. It comes supplied with a (removable) piston converter for use with bottled ink, or Pilot IC-50 cartridges can be used if the simple cartridge swap method is preferred.

Please note, its medium nib is thinner than the European standard.
