The Pilot E95s is a nod to the great design of a previous era with the elegant, stream-lined look of a classic 1960's fountain pen. Enjoy the beauty of a vintage styled fountain pen with a slim, lightweight burgundy barrel, ivory cap, and gold trim. A unique feature of this pen is the inlaid 14k gold nib for exquisitely smooth writing. It comes with a Pilot CON-40 converter and also accepts proprietary Pilot ink cartridges.

Beautiful and great writer

I got this in EF nib and it writes a super fine line. The pen itself is beautiful and a joy to look at, provides a terrific writing experience, and feels like a quality item. I've mostly stuck with Iroshizuku inks since they're meant for the pen. I tried Diamine Writers Blood in it and it didn't work well, but Iroshizuku Yama-Budo was just lovely if you like to match the pen and ink. I'm currently inked with Asa-Gao and that's a nice blue. I have tiny handwriting so the EF nib works very well for me. There's a bit of feedback, so if you hate feedback go with the fine or bigger nib instead.

worth it

i suspect that, to offer a gold nib at this price, the rest of the pen has to be made as economically as possible. subsequently, if feels light, fragile, and cheap. it is less fragile than you think. it is not made cheaply or of cheap materials. pilot has just been parcimonious with the bits that make a pen feel like a luxury item. the result is a lightweight, pocketable pen, with a gold nib and a genuinely pleasant writing experience. an extraordinary value, if you want the benefits of a gold nib without a gold nib's invoice.

Pilot E95s

This pen was a gift and my first gold nib. It's an absolutely fantastic pen to write with. Not a lot of weight for those who don't care for that, and when posted, easily long enough to hold comfortably. Not so thin it causes your hand to cramp. I adore it and keep it inked with Noodler's Black Swans in Australian Roses. I love it and haven't had it out of circulation since I got it. Highly recommended.

Despite the low rating, decent pen

So I didn't get this from Goulet, not this time but I picked one up after finding it on sale for about $100. I figured why not, everyone seems to love these and I've heard the burgundy is being discontinued. My first impression is that the box is super generic. Nothing special at all, I would rather it just come in a plastic sleeve than have to hold on to a junky box. The pen itself is incredibly light weight. It has a pretty inexpensive feel to it, I wasn't blown away by it at all. Now to the important stuff, the nib. The nib is this pens saving grace. While it's no Lamy 2k, it is very smooth and performs flawlessly. I would say this is a good $100 pen, because of the gold tip nib. I don't think I would pay more for this pen and I don't think I would buy it again unless I was just starting my collection. I would recommend this to someone looking for their first gold nib, it's a good beginner pen for sure

Excellent little writer

Beautiful pen. Wetter and broader writer than my other Japanese (and even pilot) mediums � but not by a large margin. Love the smoothness of it. Cap seals well. I take it to work every day!

FAQs about Fountain Pens

How do I fill a fountain pen with ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the pen's filling mechanism, which you can find in the Technical Specs section above. 

Here's a quick definition of the most common filling mechanisms:

  • Cartridge - A small, disposable, sealed plastic reservoir that holds fountain pen ink. These come pre-filled with ink, and typically you just push to insert them into place and you'll be ready to write! Check out our quick guide here.
  • Converter - A detachable and refillable ink reservoir that allows you to use bottled ink in a cartridge-accepting pen. Typically you will install the converter into the grip section, dip the nib/feed into the ink, and twist or pull the converter knob to draw ink into the converter. Here's a video for how to fill a cartridge/converter pen using a LAMY pen as an example.
  • Eyedropper - A pen that utilizes the entire barrel as a reservoir for ink. Ink is directly filled into the barrel, allowing for a high ink capacity. Here's a video on how to do it!
  • Piston - A type of filling system that uses a retracting plunger inside a sealed tube to draw ink into a pen. They are typically either twist or push-operated. These pens cannot accept cartridges or a converter, and only fill from bottled ink.
  • Vacuum - A push-style piston that uses pressure to fill the large pen body with ink. They seal the ink chamber when closed, making it ideal for flying without risk of leaking. Check out our video on how to use a vac filler here.

Check out more info on these filling mechanisms including a video on how to fill each one on our blog.

How do I clean a fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the filling mechanism, but it mostly comes down to flushing it out with water, and sometimes a little bit of Pen Flush if the ink is really stuck. 

It's a bit easier to show than to tell, so we've put together a few quick videos showing you the process:

How often do I need to clean my fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

We recommend a good cleaning every 2 weeks, and any time you change ink colors. 

Water will usually do the trick, but we recommend you use our Goulet Pen Flush if the ink has been left in the pen for a while and could have dried up, or when you’re switching ink colors.

My pen won’t write! What do I do? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

First things first... make sure you have ink in the pen! Be sure that the ink cartridge or converter is seated properly in the pen, and that you aren't out of ink.

We always recommend you give your pen a good cleaning first, using our Goulet Pen Flush, or a drop of dish soap in some water. New pens often have some machining oil residue left in the feed, so a good cleaning often does the trick first.

If that still doesn't work, try priming the feed. This consists of either dipping your pen nib and feed in ink, or forcing ink from the converter down into the feed. 

If it’s still not working after that, please reach out to us so we can help! 

What's your return policy? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

You can submit a return request within 30 days of your order date. You can read all our Return Policies here.

To initiate a return, please submit a request at the Return Portal. Our Customer Care team might reach out to you for more information.

Please note we are unable to accept a return of any Namiki or Sailor Bespoke fountain pen for any reason once it has been used with ink. Please thoroughly inspect and dry test the pen before use.
