Pilot Capless
Permalink Closed


This is a 1965 Pilot Capless in a beautiful salmon/pink color and SS. I picked this up recently for a very good price.
 
Sadly, the nib is Mangled with a 90 degree hook to the left & no tipping material left at all. I contacted Pilot & was told to send it in and they would see if they could fit a modern nib to the vintage feed & filler unit. It's going off tomorrow morning. I'll post updates as I get them. I can't wait to see this beauty back in service.

Other than the bad nib the pen is in excellent condition. It's killing me that I cant use it..lol.

It's still sitting here. It got buried in the trays & i forgot about it. I'll probably send it off next week & see what happens. Thanks for reminding me about it.
