T-shiki (T-式)

Five were the filling systems Pilot used on its pens during the early years of the company: safety (L-shiki, L-式), hoshiawase or star system (N-shiki), eyedropper (O-shiki), plunger filler (P-shiki), and lever filler (T-shiki).


Today’s pen is a lever filler black chased hard rubber (BCHR) pen equipped with a 14 carat gold nib in size 2.


Its dimensions are 126 mm in length and 12 g uninked.


The barrel has the brand name and the old company logo –an N encircled by a lifebuoy— engraved.


The ringtop is also made of 14 carat gold.

Its overall condition is fairly good, and it is ready to be inked and used.

Bonita pluma; me gusta el capuchón.
Yo soy así de simple; ni sistemas de llenado, ni plumines, ... o me gusta o no me gusta (es lo que tiene el no entender, que me quedo con lo superfluo; pura estética) XDD
