Pilot Custom 845 Fountain Pen - Vermillion

SKU: NAM_15286

Regular price $850.00

A Tradition explained in a pen -  the Pilot Custom 845

The Custom 845 is the newest series to launch in the Custom line of fountain pens for the United States. The Custom line was first introduced by Pilot in 1971 to create a range of fountain pens that are truly tailored to the users writing preferences. 

The Custom 845 is extremely popular worldwide because of its unique Urushi lacquer finish, two-toned 18-karat gold nib (size #15) and large barrel size. The Custom 845 is available in a Broad, Medium or Fine nib size with a CON-70 converter in Vermillion (red) barrel finishes. These exceptional Custom fountain pens are packaged in an elegant gift box.

Urushi lacquer comes from the sap of the Asian lacquer tree. When applied to the pen barrel, it hardens and absorbs moisture from the air, resulting in a shiny coat. Creating an Urushi lacquer fountain pen is an exacting and complex process because the lacquer must be carefully applied to the pen barrel in numerous hand painted layers. This traditional Japanese technique ultimately enhances both the pens’ beauty and longevity. Urushi coating will withstand corrosion from water, acids, alcohol, and even temperature changes, making the Custom 845 the perfect pen to use every day and pass down to future generations.
