Regal and refined with an oversized nib and barrel, the Pilot Custom Urushi fountain pen boasts a grand, two-toned nib size 30 made of 18-karat 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 845, 823 and 743.

Each Custom Urushi pen barrel is skillfully lacquered, cured, and polished three times to create an exquisite, ebonite finish in combination with luxurious custom gold elements. Production is completed only my skilled craftsman all in house to make sure the unsurpassed Pilot quality standards are met.  The whole process to complete this pen from start to finish takes 6 months. 

Japanese lacquer, called "Urushi", is a natural material taken from Japanese lacquer trees. Distinct properties of Urushi lacquer create a higher quality product, with greater strength and aesthetics, compared to alternative lacquering materials.
