The Pilot Custom 74 is a simple yet sophisticated fountain pen. The minimalistic design with a transparent blue-grey cap and barrel make it a must-have for any pen enthusiast.

Pilot is thrilled to announce the newest color launch within the Custom 74 season inspired collection of 2021. The first launch was the spring-inspired Forest Green. The second launch was the summer-inspired Grenadine. This third and final launch in this series for autumn/winter is Blue Stone, a beautiful, translucent slate blue hue. This sophisticated color evokes relaxation and happiness – the steely sky of a wintery day.

The Custom 74 is designed to delight the fountain pen collector with its translucent ‘demonstrator-style’ barrel and archetypal embellishments. A special mechanism in the converter ensures a fluid and continuous flow of ink with no skipping for a premium, expressive writing experience. The nib is finely crafted from 14-karat gold and is rhodium plated to match the rhodium trim and clip. The nib is available in extra fine, fine, medium or broad point sizes.

This classical demonstrator pen is refillable for continued use with a proprietary Pilot ink cartridge or Pilot’s CON-70 converter (both are included) and arrives packaged in a striking presentation box. The Pilot CON-70 converter holds an ample ink supply while uniquely combining the characteristics of a vacuum-filling and push-button converter.
