Introducing the Hunter Green Pilot Ishime, a model of Japanese artistic technique.
Pilot Ishime pens are excellent fountain pens given rave reviews by fountain pen enthusiasts for their elegant colors, smooth writing ability, and transparent look. The Ishime is a hand-lacquered fountain pen with a 18kt gold nib. The word “Ishime” roughly translates to “stone path”, which refers to the design on the cap and barrel, hand-drawn into its wet lacquer. This Maki-e technique is called “Kawarinuri", meaning “unique painting”. Urushi, Japanese lacquer, is textured like stones on the Ishime's deep green body. The Ishime comes in fine, medium, and broad.
