The pilot company first launched the elite model in 1968 and it instantly became one of their most popular models at the time. Pen here is the second generation of this model which was introduced in 1975. The pen is crafted in high-quality shiny resin plastic which not only gives great appeal to the pen but it also protects it physically since it is more crack and scratch-resistant than other materials. The gold plated trimmings give the pen a more elegant look and complement the design as a whole.The clip features a nice crisp engraving with the pilot branding name. Its compact physique makes it a great pen for every day everywhere you are fitting in any pocket of a jacket. This is a great feature because you get to have a pen that is suitable to be carried around and can fit almost anywhere, but at the same time when the cap is posted it gives the pen a full length of an oversized fountain pen.
The pen is fitted with a very nice, m size, 18k 750 gold nib which features fine engravings that read pilot, 18k, 750 and m. The nib is a good writer, very reliable, producing a constant fine line, it could produce a variety of line width with some pressure applied while writing.
The pen feels comfortable in the hand and has a quality feel to it. The lightweight construction contributes for tireless long writing sessions without hand fatigue. Has no cracks or dents.
